N.Y. FLASHBACK: JAY CORBIN – ESPN – FOOTLOCKER/HOH 34TH ST. – TINA’S CUBAN

Wether You Follow Me on Twitter, Check Out My Blog, or Stalk Me in Real Life then You know I traveled out to NYC recently for the Sneakerpedia Event held at The Hudson Hotel. Once again, I had an amazing time while in New York. Day 2 had us on the go all around the City. Subways > Taxies !! We headed out to meet up with Jay Corbin AKA @sneakersensei over at ESPN. It will be the last time I get a chance to visit Him there. Jay recently made a Power Move and it’s everything it seems. Of course I had the 60D with Me firing away. 

Jay had all kinds of Goodies lying around His Desk. Being onboard several projects a year will have a ton of Packages coming your way. That’s the kind of problem I need to have one day soon. These Nike Cleats were CRAZY!! Look at the technology on the bottom of these Bad Boys.

Here JC shows us His Blinged Out Yankees Hat. Yes, there’s an actual Diamond in the front of that hat.  

WOW!! It was crazy seeing the Autograph on a pillar at ESPN of a 5 time NBA Champion and Career Los Angeles Laker Michael Cooper. BOOM!! Los Angeles In The Building! ESPN Desks were Bobble Head and Sports Memorabilia Heaven! 

We took time to stop by Footlocker/HOH 34th. St.. Nothing special other than it being 2 levels. The HOH Staff was cool. Spent about half an hour there shooting the shit about kicks and other related topics. Good People. 

Last but definitely not least, before heading back to the Hotel for the Sneakerpedia Event Jay brought us to Tina’s Cuban. BOMB.COM !! Had a great time breaking bread with Jay, Elias, and Kyle. The Food was just what I anticipated, Muy Rico!! Jay went back a few days after and I hear that the waitress asked for Me. I guess I left Her thinking about the WOLF! (Don’t Punch Your Computer Screen or Throw Your Laptop-It’s Not Healthy) This was a great day with Old and New Friends. Stay Tuned for the “Jay comes to LA” posts… Joining Forces with Sneaker Sensei. Light Work!! – WOLF

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
