From what I heard that's a shirt that Matt and Aysix from Goodfoot made to diss Livestock. I guess it backfired? Karma's a bitch.
there is so much misinformation in this thread it's bananas
I didn't make ANY shirts....so whoever threw my name in this is buggin...i pick what shoes come into our store...it's not about anyone vs anyone
if this does indeed turn out to be a livestock shirt...they took the idea from a shirt that has already been printed and will show up sooner than you think
goodfoot was first, livestock came about after we created the buzz and market and that's undeniable. in fact, ANY boutique style sneaker spot with has us to thank for creating the business in canada....the closest thing Toronto ever had was Delphic and Vancouver has FWUH...but neither was a sneaker store by ANY means.(EDIT...TWFR was pretty damn cutting edge for their time and I completely forgot them. Good point...again not just a sneaker store though...they sold more clothing than shoes)
it's not being cocky or putting down anyone else, it's cold hard fact. before goodfoot matt was selling shoes online, jesar and zeb were selling LV/Gucci'd out Af1's through Vice and I was hustling US GR's to cats out of my mom's basement. Opening a store was the natural progession and a HUGE risk at the time.
there's enough money in this country for EVERYONE...our scene is still mad small and getting smaller everytime things get blown out of proportion like this.
people need a sense of humour...i personally think us giving away a t-shirt that says ride jock in their font is jokes...they opened up less than a block away from us..it's an intentional move designed to cake off of our traffic and step on toes.
Which is all good since we opened a couple blocks away from them....no one is losing sleep over this and hopefully you guys will realize that it just means more chances for us to work harder to get your business and improve our respective companies.
If anyone else has a need to post another thread about this or come through with some speculative info..don't bother. Come see me at the store or go talk to Garry Bone and you can genuinely hear how the situation really is.
how can two stores backed by children of wealthy families act like they're so hood? is it going to end with matt george and g-man getting into a 'MY DAD'S PORTFOLIO IS STRONGER THAN YOUR DAD'S PORTFOLIO'.
