Gloria's and Global Sports are less known, and stock some absolute class stuff.
Strongly recommend you have a look in them fella.

Yeah those are nice places. I haven't been to Gloria's for a while because it is kinda out of the way. Global sports has tons of heat that the locals never take notice of. They had both colours of the "beautiful losers" blazers for a nice price a month back.

Feb 04, 2007 @ 13:32
could u gimme any idea of the sneaks they got there, is it comparable to size? or more like jd sports?? i'm in south ken so that's not 2 far right?
Feb 04, 2007 @ 13:51
well theyve got customised off the hizzle shit like espos og huraches patent aj1 its nothing like jd its nothing like sizes it on a next level it imports customised kicks straight from the us air brushed prada sport etc etc
Feb 04, 2007 @ 14:46
wait is it straight customized sneakers? or could i go there and get a pair of infrareds or opiums (random examples but ya get the picture)?
Feb 04, 2007 @ 17:01
It's the sort of place I'd expect to find opiums.

They didn't have them when I asked, but they're a fucking brilliant shop. Nicest people ever in there, nicer than FP!

Actually, Sneaker Freaker had a thing on it somewhere, I'll find it.

checked out Global Sports, good lookin out guys, mad nice. FootPatrol's got maad limited shit but a kinda small selection . Global has a crazy selection, wish there were more dunks n i didnt see any court forces but they had mad af1s and all sorts of air maxes (still had infrareds in a ton of sizes n i think the clerks packs). I'm not a bape head but were all those bape sneaks legit, just curious. They still had hte beautiful losers blazers for only 75 pound n i almost shit my drawers cuz they said 10 on the inside which i studpidly assumed was a UK10/US11 (as im an 11) but the guy was like nah that's a UK9/US10 and so i was a bit let down heh smh , thought i had found an ill deal 4 myself. Still, that shops the best ive been to in London IMO, how do they get their sneaks tho cuz they had mad releases n even an SB or 2?

Are all the other sneaker sports in the market selling fakes b/c i walked in 1 like 3 doors down from Global n some of the product looked good n legit while some of it was lookin a bit suspect....

Ill have ot check out that sports n things place 2.

Ahh its good you went down there. I heard the owner gets all that stuff from his brother in the states. I don't know how exactly. The bapestas there are real from what i have seen. The other shops, i cannot vouch for. As you said, some look real others not so real - so its best to stay away.
