DRJAYS.COM EXCLUSIVE BUYER’S BLOG: MIKE KIM
To expand a little bit on what my desk buddy and dear friend Nancy Lee had to say, I believe the sneaker game has decided to take a bit of a nap. Nobody is rocking SB’s anymore and the Dunk phenomenon has been so watered down that I wouldn’t be surprised to see somebody’s dad wearing some awful GRs shopping for some Wrangler jeans at Target.
You’ll never find me camping outside a sneaker spot at 11pm the night before a release in a line full of overweight hypebeasts who can’t fit in their skinny jeans, carrying skate decks they never use. The kicks won’t get you laid. If you’re trying to cop a Jordan release, do yourself a favor. Just get on Footlocker.com around midnight of the release and cop them online. You’ll save yourself a lot of trouble. You won’t have to deal with some snobby 35 year old dudes who still dress like they’re 18, power tripping ’cause they’re wearing some Tiffanys. You can always save your dough and spend ‘em on some JNCOs.
