Sneakerhead sightings..

May 04, 2006 @ 17:18:24
Maybe I'm not chillin' in the right spots.. but I rarely see anyone wearing heat. I saw Tiffs, Cali's, Hunters once EACH at a mall, Oompas once at the Nike Outlet, and Jedi's once at a boutique.. and those are weeks if not months spread apart..

Does anyone wear there shoes anymore??

Where I live there are very people up on hot shit (where you at mikeboi homie!). But occasionaly I see some heat. This weekend I went to houston and had about a 30 min convo with some cat who asked me where I got my kicks from. But what's even rarer is seeing someone with some ill clothes on. Welcome to the land of 5x white tees and all white forces.

Im suprised, when I was in California(LA to be exact), sneakerheads popped out of everywhere like pimples. I could tell these kids were sneakerheads because only in Cali do they rock matching SB's with a hundreds or supreme shirt. They dont even rock it like that in NY. Even in the most unlikely places like Bakersfield. But I never really see FIRE, not heat. Meaning 20 pair in the world FIRE. Your lucky to see that anywhere. blushing

I see bapes on a regular basis, although I don't really bother to check if they're real or fake.

Some guy was wearing todds and a blue bape camo hoodie the other day... and he was gawking at my delta force supremes and giving the verbal rundown of what I was wearing. Total overkill.

over here in holland almost nobody wears sb's, not even when you go to a hip club or whatever. and ive only seen 2 pair of bapesta's in holland so far (one pair was from a french guy and the other pair was fake)

i love it that almost nobody knows those things, so i get more odd looks when i wear tiffs n stuff

i go university near cnetral london and when i pass through i have seen some mad heat like lucky dunks and amsterdamms, de la souls all just yesterday previously i even saw someone wearing neighberhood 35ths i couldnt believe it
May 07, 2006 @ 01:33:53
The only heat I see is when tourist try and stunt. In the past 10 months I've seen 2 sb's and one OG pair of AJ III's. One was a "hipster" kid from NY, the other 2 were older gentlemen. Everything else is GR forces and Jordans, or BLATANTLY fake FAPES. They even got the kids wearing them, it's kinda sad actually. But it's the summer now so maybe things will heat up, no pun intended.

May 07, 2006 @ 20:34:42
Damn. I was at the la brea warehouse sale and people wore their saturday best. I'm talking size? air maxes, legit bapes, avengers, jedis... but that is also sort of mecca for that scene. I wore my 97s, kept it mild.

Hahahaha I see that shizzle all the time, thinking they're all above the rest of the world or something...

Here in Van there're quite a number of sneakerheads. Throw a rock in downtown and they'll come running~~

Dam I thought sneaker heads were taking over the planet, but I guess by the way it sounds from everyone on here its not as big as it seems. I live in LA and it seems that everyone is up on hot kicks.... I mean everyone.
I also spend alot of time in SF and it seems that sneakers are bigger than they have ever been thr.... A lot of heads in SF is rockin heaters. New York to me seems to have the biggest sneakerhead community that I have ever seen.
New York heads seem to have the Jordan game on lock.... Jordans everywhere as well as Airforces and Bapes. I guess I never really go to small towns or City's to take notice of whats goin on, but I just figured it was the same everywhere.

i wear the most exclusive pair of kicks I own to work out.Oh well.
May 08, 2006 @ 14:10:47
the best is walking up lafayette street past clientele, supreme, stackhouse, etc. it looks like everyone is trying to show off their hottest shit. last friday, walking the train, i saw a dude walk out of supreme with a bag, walk two stores down, sit outside and change into the new dunks he bought.

i just sit outside my job(soho-between broadway & lafayette) and people watch. tons of sneakers, tons of tourists with like a million bags from union, nort, etc. its crazy.

but when im on mel rose i see a bunch of people rocking dunks O_O

Well in London its pretty good..

There's always a nice selection of kicks around peeps. Things from asics runners to air max 90's its all here...

All the 'try harders' can be found in central London. Carnaby St, Upper James, Oxford Street and Covent Garden...

EVERY Bape head i know can be found near Piccadily Circus sipping herbal tea in an Thai resturant. In a name they cant pronounce...
