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.

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
