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

REIGN IN BLOOD: BROOKLYN PROJECTS X NIKE DUNK HIGH PREMIUM SB RELEASE @ BP MELROSE 6/6/2011 – WOLF ON THE SCENE

As many of You know I was in attendance for the Brooklyn Projects X Nike Dunk High SB “Reign In Blood” Special Release at Brooklyn Projects Melrose. The afternoon did not disappoint. I have to start off by thanking Dom Deluca and Staff for hosting a great organized fair release for the highly sought after Dunk Highs. One of the best since the Gucci Dunk Highs and the Brain Wrecks IN MY OPINION!! (Yes, We are all enttled to have one. You should try it sometime!!) Pictured below is the Brooklyn Projects Dunk Low SB from years back with it’s Big Bro the RIB.  

This Young Man was first in line and came down with Family all the way from San Francisco. His group wasn’t going to take a chance on the Special Edition. It was hilarious listening to a bunch of different People in line speculating on the number of pairs produced and where they were being sold etc.. Rumors and wrong info galore. Everyone is an Expert these days.

Dom went all out on the packaging of the special edition. The Blood Bags special ordered for the release were a nice touch indeed. Special Edition Nike SB X Brooklyn Projects Tees were included in a second Blood Bag. You can catch images spread throughout this post of the Tee Print. The Team was all hands on deck. 

As You can see, there were many happy People. Always good to see real fans and lovers of Sneakers get their Pair as opposed to mass reseller. Yeah Yeah, GFY! I’ve moved on to bigger better Hustles. Sorry for feeding Myself the last 2 years. “Dad On The Scene” below was way excited that He was able to once again secure His Son’s Pair. I see Him at many a release making sure His Son is taken care of. Good to see this type of dedication both of Family and Sneakers. SALUTE!!!! 

Brooklyn Projects is a great Skate Shop located in the Heart of the Los Angeles Life Style. A second location can be found in the City of Pasadena. The Half Pipe in the backyard is a classic touch. That’s where I snapped that picture up top of this post. So many Skaters, I didn’t catch this Gentlemen’s Name. I’m happy I was able to secure a pair Myself. Good Times and Great People. That sums up the release event and this shop. It’s a BP Thing! Once again a SALUTE and Thank You to Dom Deluca and Crew. I told You what I thought of Your Dunk High and I meant it Sir!

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
