    Thanks to leadership here (@Nelson C @HellaSteph @Methodical Management) for y'all's (yes, I said y'all's) planning, creativity, and diligence in executing an event that will stick with me for a lifetime.

    The event was about community, in every aspect of the word, "pre", during, and "post" the event. For me, it was 2002 - 2008 all over again.

    The overall mission, distinct values, and direct principles Niketalk were founded on STILL are prevalent (I argue more now than ever), and there are members who still exists with a "no holds barred" drive to protect and exemplify NT's mission.

    I don't think newer members "get it". The impact of this site can not be denied.

    Names from DJ AM (Rest in Peace brother), Dom Kennedy, to 'AntiSocial SocialClub' owner Neek Lurk... Their freedom of expression and love for the culture was founded here at some point in our history within the black background, red hyperlinks and white text.

    Sites (I will just name a few out of the slew) including Sole Collector, Hypebeast, and Kicks on Fire would not exist today without grabbing some of the DNA from Niketalk.

    Your favorite "(social) media sneaker/culture celeb" who is currently 28 years old or older was birthed here. Name one. I will give you his/her history, even as a lurker and not an official member.

    Employees past or currently at Beaverton who's path of opportunities came initially from this site? Please, don't get me started....................................................

    Niketalk, historically, was, is, and always will be truly #fortheculture and thanks for the opportunity for an "old fart" like myself to experience it "live" once again.

    -E.O.H.

    We did have a professional videographer on site this time, who's hard at work editing footage from the event. We hope to share that with you early next week.

    In the meantime, some cell phone pictures were also taken at the event, but, in low lighting, the results are as you would expect.

    Here's a group photo @Nelson C recently shared from the event on his Instagram page:

    So dope!! It sucks I missed it, but I gotta try to make it out next year.

    I'm glad everyone had a great time!!

    Side note: I will forever love the 15s as well! Being a twin, my mom would never get two pairs of $100+ sneakers. That year, I saved up half and my mom finally caved and got me a size 12 in the white/Carolina 15s(I'm a 10.5/11 lol). If it were up to me, I would always have a pair of those in my closet. The first ones I got with my own money were the white/red 16 lows. I actually still own and wear them. I'll buy multiple pairs if they ever drop again.
