yo, no way dude camping this AM would have left sometime this week between when he got there this AM and on Saturday.no way..not at all..not a chance..not even close.. I'd put money on the fact that he'd have chilled the WHOLE time.
last year, I was working at concepts right around this time of year, (may/june) and the first lobsters were dropping then. there was cats lining up the Wednesday before the shoes dropped; so, today's instance isn't all that far fetched. PLUS, as of 6/7 PM tonight, there's about 10 or 12 people straight posted up outside concepts right now..haha..
I mean, don't get me wrong, I used to have to wait for shoes. I hit the old tannery/concepts at like 4/5AM to scoop the first J-Rod's and the Tiffany dunks. got hit over the head for the cost of the kicks (that had to be paid in cash) but loved every second of it. I remember being so stoked on the Tiff's.. hah, SMH at me.. at that stage of your sneaker liking, shit like that is fun. I grew up wearing a lot of heat (thanks Pops,) but at one point, not too too long ago, everything changed and now, it's close to impossible to get any of the good stuff that they drop for box price.. I had to wait up for the DMP's too.. me and my man hit Champs on Wash St --downtown crossing the night before.. got there about midnight, twisted a few Ls, scooped the kicks at like 8/9AM when they opened, had to straight beef with about 25/30 cats in the immediate area to grab the index card (each card had a shoe size on it, so whoever got a card with a certain size on it, got that size,) almost got jacked walking back to the train with the HUGE gold boxes, hit the crib and slept for a week, haha..but me and my dude held it down. we hopped the turnstyles at Park Street station and the cops immediately stopped us...the dudes chasing us did the same exact thing trying to catch us, so it was not hard for the cops to see what was happening.. they let me and my man go and wrote the pack of goons tickets...LOL
either way, my point is.. cats straight LOVE waiting in line. for some dudes, it's obviously worth it for them to chill outside a store for 24, 48, 72, 96, shit... I guess in this case, close to 110 hours to then pay 2 and a half bills on a pair of sneaks. at least, they've justified doing that in their head somehow, and if that's the conclusion they have come to, word up, let em rock with it, whatever. and for some cats, they have made the conscious decision that it is NOT worth their time to camp and chill outside a store to have to legit be posted in the same spot the whole time to hold the spot down for a night, two nights, three nights, damn...four nights. dudes straight camped out for some SB's for a straight crazy long weekend's worth of time, right?. a normal long weekend would be either Monday OR Friday off in addition to sat. and sun. obviously. these cats waiting from Tuesday morning to Saturday afternoon, pretty much 5 days and 4 nights (like a hot damn cruise ship advertisement..) shit is crazy, yo..but for real, good job to the fam over at concepts... THIS IS WHAT THE FUCK IS UP RIGHT HERE... straight holding it down... be on the lookout for some possible new NB collabs also. T've only heard a rumor, but I heard there was some heat on the way... we'll just have to wait and see now won't we...?
