It was another sunny Southern California weekend at the shop, and this was the street scene in Little Tokyo.  80 degrees and not a cloud in sight.  Whenever you come by RIF, make sure to walk around and experience the rest of the small shops and restaurants in the area, especially in the Plaza across the street.  Respect the Locals.

In honor of 420 this past weekend, we present the Nike Sb Dunk Low Bonsai Hemp.  

2nd street Willy was hard at work this weekend, he made sure the sales floor was clean and tidy.  He also made sure that the shoe cases in the front of our shop, which house all of the HEAT, were dusted and spotless.  Thanks again Willy!

Just some of the sneakers from the case, which one would you pick if you only had one choice?

Willy having a good time while he was grinding for RIF, it's certainly a pleasure to have him as a part of our team, even he's about that No Trickery life, so we had to get him the brand new white version of that tee as an additional thank you to him.

Can you name this sneaker?

Now Available at RIF LA: Nike Sb Dunk Low Concord.  What are your thoughts on the newest Nike Sb release?

The homie Yultron decided to stop by the shop this weekend, and brought his signature bike along with him as well.  Be sure to look out for the release of his newest song that features Honey Cocaine.

Real or Fake

March has already passed, and we are now half way into April.  Spring is going to begin bringing Summer in quickly and we have been very busy to say the least. Each week holds a new release whether it is Jordan brand or Nike basketball.  Peep the Jordan wall in RIF LA, what would you pick if you could only have one?

Carl & Danny are hard at work, or hardly working?  Chances are you've seen both of them at the shop, feel free to ask them or any other staff member for any help whether it be an explanation of the consignment or buyback programs, or if you want to try on a shoe.  

Our good friend Ben Baller decided to drop by and be the head of the RIF staff for the day.  He's handling business as usual.

Black / Infrared 6 from the Infrared pack, just one of his DAILY pickups from RIF LA, enjoy the kicks Ben

If you don't know who this is next to Ben, then you're missing out on one of the premier, up and coming clothing brands in LA, Fear of God LA.  S/O to Jerry Lorenzo for stopping by the shop, enjoy the shoes brotha

Nothing is better than being BLESSED by our great RIF supporters and fam, our staff wants to thank everyone who has brought in food for us, it is greatly appreciated.  iSpy Jollibee

This fried chicken is bomb.  It may not be the healthiest thing we've eaten, but you can never go wrong with the Jollibee's fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, and the mango pies.

In case you did not already know, we released 6 different designs of Elite socks as well as a re-up with a 4 new designs as well.  Be sure not to SLEEP on what we have planned for the coming weeks and a release of another design.

RIF "fuck givenchy" Nike elite socks that dropped last weekend, there's just a few of these left at RIF Dos

The line for the first release of our socks (along with the Atmos Air Max 1's).  As you can see there was plenty of hype for the RIF socks.

Recently we've had to deal with one of the trickiest pair of fake shoes in a long time.  The coveted Oregon Duck AJ 3's is on the top of every sneakerhead's list right now.  Below, we have one real and one fake pair.  Can you figure out which one is real or fake?

Everyone knows we are about No Trickery here at RIF, fakes are getting more difficult to spot nowadays.  For this particular pair of shoes, the fakes are easy to spot with the darker elephant print, as well as having perforated leather along the eyelets while the real pair only has smooth leather in that spot.  If you're ever buying a pair of shoes, be sure to look up the differences between the real ones and fake ones.  We are also more than happy to help anyone with a Legit Check on a pair of shoes.  Until next time, have a great week- RIF LA
