Originally posted by Inactive Userim hittin up that new spot WTHN tomorrow, im hoping the selection is decent cause ubiq fell of HARD- its not even half the what it used to be i gotta say and the prices only got worse and afficial not all that hot either i gotta say thye got some nice kicks but the priceds are ludicrous
i love philly tho for kicks i dont really buy them as much as i used to but if im looking for something half rare or GR u can usually find it here without a problem
there are stil some spots that have old shit like out in the NE (josephs) but besides taht yes its a humble city, we got the best cheessteaks in the world and old city is always a good time for the bars
Originally posted by Inactive UserWhere's WTHN. Ya UBIQ no longer really stocks much clothing (last time I was there the second floor was entirely closed. I guess you could call Philly a smaller, humbler NY, but I think that's over simplifying it. It's a true working class city (unlike NY), the people are humble, the city in general is very affordable, and it's got the best food in the US next to NYC. But if you're from NY don't expect it to be on the same level. And whoever said it had a ton of hypebeasts, wtf?! Philly has very few people that are into the sneaker/ high-end "streetwear" market. Sure you might see a few on South St., but as a whole Philadelphians don't worry that much about $170 sneakers or $40 T-shirts, it doesn't really go with the working class mentality that defined the average Philadelphian. Plus, not to generalize too much, but the city is damn near entirely White and Black, probably less than 5-7% Asian, and Asians are often a large part of the streetwear/sneaker market (like in SF and NYC).

Originally posted by Inactive User^nowhere you'll find decent prices in the city... nocturnal on south st. is the most frequented sb spot nowadays but they're gradually raising their prices into the "rape" territory... the new camo highs were a cool $150 last i stopped in a few days ago. sub-zero is a good choice if you're into fake shit cause that's all they sell, and just like everybody else said, ubiq blows. go there if you like getting dirty looks and zero help from employees. the gallery one is a bit better but eh.
WTHN (3rd and church) is the new ish for clothing but kick selection is weak, especially if you're a bigger-foot guy like me (12.)
