I dont think Detroit is 'off' its game, unless your nyc or la how many sneaker/streetwear spots are there? In the metro area we have revive,burn rubber,motivation,puffer reds,launch,pogo..not a bad mix of stores. this area just has so many HYPEBEASTS that ruin the game and are 'new' sneaker/culture heads with their trend hopping and trend killing.
I was more talking about how the city in general is being hit hard by the economy and since the fall of the american automotive industry, detroit has never been able to regain the wealth that it once had. I have been downtown detroit and it is empty, buildings are boarded up, there are jsut a lot of birds. but anyways thanks for the list of stores. peace
