So i went to district and well uh it's not the best sneaker store,they have some good new era's,Diamond dunks are going for 500$,they have an ok shoe selection,but the funniest thing in the store was the people who were in there that had no idea about the shoes or clothing,they were all like man ima be diffrent this fall/wall this is going to be my spot,it's funny to see this kind of reaction,i talked to the guy who worked there and he said that they havent gotten all there acounts yet and that they have a tier 0 account.....................

the guys running it are good people and know what they are doing - otherwise i dont think they'd get the opportunity to stock the lines they are currently carrying.

i just put some pics of the store up on my site, for those of you who want to see what it looks like...

I know these guys pesonally, and don't sleep on them, or their abilities to get a Nike 0 account. Their New Era will always be top notch, since they have desinged for them and consulted with New Era for years. Who do you think designed the NBA Logo Man hat, they did.

CLEARING THINGS UP.....
D51 IS STRICTLY CONSIGNMENT WITH ALL NIKE'S DISPLAYED IN THEY'RE STORE (NO EXCEPTIONS, REAGRDLESS OF WHAT OTHERS MAY SAY)...THERE IS NO NIKE ACCOUNT TIER 0 OR OTHERWISE. AS WITH MOST NEW LIFESTYLE/SNEAKER BOUTIQUE OPENINGS, A NIKE ACCOUNT ON ANY LEVEL IS SOMETHING TO BE EARNED AND NOT GIVEN (EXCEPT THOSE FEW STORE FRONTS THAT HAVE DONE PREVIOUS BUSNIESS WITH THE LIKES OF NIKE IN OTHER VENTURES).

AS FOR D51 THE COMPANY...I THINK ALOT OF GREAT THINGS ARE GONNA COME FROM THEM IN THE NEAR FUTURE. I'VE BEEN READING ALOT OF BLOGS AND POSTS PRETTY MUCH MUCH SHUTTING THEM DOWN BEFORE THEY COULD EVEN GET THEY'RE DOORS OPEN...BUT I'M HERE TO LET YOU KNOW THESE GUYS WILL BE HERE FOR THE LONG RUN.

I was up in there last weekend during Howard Homecoming on Saturday night. I rapped to the owner and he is a cool kat(Total Sports). But it does look like they will be doing a lot of consignment because you can't just get a SB account like that. I told him he should put plastic over the shoes because a lot of folks that come in there don't know what they are looking at a will just handle the shoes and never buy. Do it like Flight Club in NYC. I was up NY for SneakerPimps last Friday and the boy Chris is funny as shit up in Flight Club. You can't even really try on the shoes. The 51 shop does look good. I can't wait to see what Major does!!!

I really like the layout of the shop as well,it's small and nice looking,i think that they should put plastic on the shoes as well for the fact that when i was in there people had a soda in one hand and a shoe in the other,i can see there shop really being a good shop in the months to come,but if you ask me there shoes are a little to limited,most of the shoes only have 2 sizes ready to buy,but im also just going to wait for MAJOR since they will have an undftd account along with a tier 0 account,even though the guy working there said that they were getting a tier 0 account soon..............

i was there this friday and they didn't have much stuff in stock.
either everything was sold or they just didn't get any shipments in.

location sucks, but the shop is looking clean and the dudes are nice.

brandon from D51 also hooked me up with a free tee.

well, i had no idea where the store was.
only thing i knew was that it was near howard univ so i got off at shaw/howard univ exit off of green line, then walked about 10 blocks and it's located right next to up against the wall.

commonwealth is opening up in adam's morgan.

if you want to go check out d51, wait few more days or something because they don't have much. few dunk sbs from consignment and 3sixteen tees and some company called bones.

Selling SBs on consignment does not equal an SB account, don't get it twisted.


Haha well then they for sure ain't getting a Tier 0 account.
