For the season finale of StockX TV, host Josh Luber interviews Jaysse Lopez, owner of Las Vegas sneaker boutique Urban Necessities. In the episode, the two discuss the sneaker game that’s being embraced by Las Vegas, where a lot of the traffic in and out of the store is driven by tourists rather than sneaker fanatics. Lopez’s YouTube channel, Two Js Kicks, is also examined for the relevancy of sneaker content it provides to the sneaker community.

Lopez and Luber later confer about the KITH x Nike LeBron XVs, and how the Nike Basketball scene is so much more under-the-radar than the flood of YEEZYs and hyped sneakers that are saturating the market. Surprisingly the resell price of the collaborative LeBrons are, currently, quite affordable and not far off from their original retail pricing, but the two expect the value to rise very soon.

Check out the season finale of the StockX TV series, including a special guest cameo by comic characters The Sn’eads above and watch the previous episode where Verbal explains why he missed out on the N.E.R.D Pharrell Hu NMDs.
