Urban Supremacy.

This past weekend a few of us made our way 3 blocks up the street to attend the first sneaker forum held in Downtown LA...Urban Supremacy.

Four of the top sneaker collectors here in Los Angeles discussed their ideas on current sneaker trends and what they believe sneaker companies need to pave the way for sneaker collectors to come.

Unlike most sneaker events. This event had no shoes for sale nor display. It was a simple forum where sneaker fiends congregated and basically talked/discussed... shoes.

To say the least it was an interesting event and was more in depth about personal reasons, and individual love about what we all share as a community...shoes.

whats any event without an Open Bar

Packed to the brim with sneaker aficionado's of all kinds. The best part was no one was too coollll. The event had a wide variety of collectors...some just starting ...others that have been in the game for decades.
