Earlier this week we had the pleasure of attending the Aristocrats x Bodega Vape pop-up-shop grand opening party. It was a great atmosphere and we would like to congratulate them on their accomplishments.
Shoutout to Linn from Aristocrats
The Golden Dragon Vape, there were only 15 of these released.
Danny and Nikki Stiletto
The limited tank top that was released for the occasion
It was nice to see RIF supporters there as well
Here's a look at just SOME of the giveaways
Connor and Danny were in attendance
Back at the shop, it's been a very busy week with TONS of new arrivals (over 200 in the past two days alone). Below, you can see the What The set in full (minus the LeBron 9).
What the LeBron X, What the KD V, What the Kobe 7, and ,the one that started them all, the What the Dunk.
Ben Baller came through once again to chop it up.
The staff was even blessed with some complimentary Chick-Fil-A for all their hard work.
Mid-meal: It took all of about 5 minutes for everyone to finish their lunch.
The end result: a trash can full of empty containers.
Take a look at this picture, do you see anything wrong with this Air Jordan 14 Candy Cane Tag on a 2011 Concord box? We are more than willing to help anyone with a Legit Check on their shoes, so please never hesitate to come in and ask.
In case you haven't seen our recent Instagram post, we did in fact do a Legit Check on a pair of Bred 11's. A customer recently brought in a pair which he purchased off of Craigslist for $250. Unfortunately, after a tedious process of examining every part of the shoe, we had to inform him that they were indeed fake.
Can you tell which pair is fake below?
Here is a quick Legit Check for the Bred 11 featuring some of the key aspects of the shoe. Below, you can see the jumpman and 23 at an angle on the back of the shoe.
Here is a a shot from directly behind the shoe.
Take a look at the tongue and toe box of each pair.
This is what the fake stitching on the tongue looks like up-close.
Here's what a legit pair looks like, notice the arm on the Jumpman logo is thicker on the legit pair.
Finally we compared the soles of the shoes. The fake pair had a much darker Jumpman logo.
Here's a closer look at the fake pair.
Shoutout to the homie Frank for stopping by and copping some DB 6's from us, you can catch him on-court at the Drew League.
