PUSHING WEIGHT: RIF LOS ANGELES #334A

You can catch Me at RIF Los Angeles at least 4 times a week. Happened to finally get to posting some Pics of My latest visit. See, I take pictures just about every time I’m in there. The welcoming Management and Staff make this great store all that much better. A Public Congrats goes out to Jeff and His better half for recently welcoming a beautiful baby Girl into this crazy world. He is accepting any and all baby Jordan and Nike Shoes.. HEAT ONLY!!! 

Oh, You don’t know? RIF has been releasing Pocket Tees lately. I have no idea if it’s in store only or an on-line thing as well. Call and ask if interested. Ask for Manny or Murad. Ed will most likely be outside smoking a cigarette while Modeling a new boat shoe or some Rare Visvim. Below: I snapped a shot of some LeBron 7 Lows. The Grey Suede was KILLING though!! Jeff said the Owner always comes in Rocking some Heat. I’m such a Sneaker Nerd. These made My Day!

Located in Little Tokyo @ 334-A E. 2nd St., at RIF You will find a deal on a Shoe that You have always been looking for. It might not be DS, or it might be the most DS Mint Crisp Pair in the World. No matter what, You can Bet anything that You will not find a better deal at Fraud Club Los Angeles or FeE-Bay! Sidenote: I really had a great time and enjoyed Visiting FCNY. Complete opposite of the LA Location.  Sidenote.2: Bobby at FCLA = Good People!! I don’t hold it against Him for working there. 

I’ve always enjoyed the Sneaker History laying around the store. There’s something to be said about a fully educated/non-hyped team full of knowledge that matters to true Sneaker Nerds. A pleasure and honor to be able to have this store in My City. If You are ever in Los Angeles or just happen to live here and You hadn’t heard about this place because the rock You live under blocks You from a Western View, stop by RIF Los Angeles. Tell them Wolf sent You. Stay Tuned As Always – WOLF LA

SNEAKERPEDIA LAUNCH PARTY – NYC – HUDSON HOTEL 5/17/2011

Last week I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Sneakerpedia Launch Party in NYC. The Hudson Hotel was the place to be on the 17th. Lines formed quickly and before You knew it, the place was Packed! I was very much looking forward to the chance to finally meet many People I have only had contact with Via Twitter and My Blog. The night did not disappoint. 

Hosting the Event was none other than the ATF Crew. Mayor on the Mic, Clark on the 1’s and 2’s. ALL DAY was on the “Killing Your Shoe Game” Patrol. Finally had the chance to also meet DJ. Greg Street. Not only have I heard good things about this Gentlemen, but I see how much He does for the Community and Children where He is from. SALUTE!! BUN B. of UGK (RIP PIMP C.) took the stage performing many a classic verse from some of our favorite Hits. The crowd went crazy! 

Mayor AKA well, Mayor was the Host at the Sneakerpedia Event. He brought out some Neck Breakers with the Paris Dunk Low SB X AF1. I have heard many a opinion on this particular mash up. To each His own I say. 

Many a Blogger in the building. Ran into Chris of C To The JL who was chilling with Joe La Puma of Complex Magazine. Always good to see You Chris! Above You are seeing Sneak Geekz “On Feet” shot. He broke out the Jordan 5 Tokyo 23’s (I have a few pair in Sz. 10 if anyone is interested). These 5’s are straight Butter! I definitely need to find Myself a Sz. 12 in this Jordan.

Greg Street seemed to break Everyone’s Neck at the Party by arriving in the Infamous WU-TANG Dunk Hi! BOOOM! Shut It Down Status! It was all in all a great night to be able to see what people really Wear compared to what they talk about and show on these Sites. 

Walking through the Bar area Melissa Pardo of the Footlocker Clan stopped Me and introduced Me to a talented Customizer. Above and Below We are blessed to have a look at a Tribute Customization of a Blue Leather upper Converse High Classic. Fetti does an amazing  job memorializing local Long Beach Singer/Rapper Nate Dogg. The outers feature cartoon like images of Nate reading “All Doggz Go To Heaven” and “RIP Nate Dogg”. The inner sides of the pair feature Lyrics. Nate recently passed away incase You live under a rock. Snoop Dogg needs to take a look at these in Person asap to appreciate the Love, Talent and hard work put into this pair. You can check out more about the Customizer at FDNYC.BLOGSPOT.COM

With many a Sneaker in attendance, all in all it was a great night. I’d like to Thank My Friend Elias T. of  the “All Cities” famous Seeking The Throne for taking this trip with Me. Kyle aka The Sneaker Guru is Family and was treated that way. Franalations and Reenae arrived as the Event ended. He’s also Family. Thanks to Him We ended staying up till 5:30 AM when I had planned on getting up at 6AM. Thanks Fran! Late Night/Early Morning Pizza with Greg Street, All Day, Franalations & Reenae, Elias (STT), The Sneaker Guru, Premium Pete, Sneak Geekz, Sneaker Box Clyde and Premium Pete’s Victims of the Night. Hope everyone enjoys the images from the event. Stay Tuned As Always – WOLF
