Yeah you can get deals at city blue but you gotta ask them they don't always just give them to you. U can go on Germantown or Erie ave, 52nd, almost all the duckie spots in Philly its too many to name.
Kensington underneath the L.... has some decent stuff still in the shrink wrap. Old Flights and Sky forces. Some Etonic Trans AM Trainers. There is also a little spot on like 25th and Girard. A whole wall of New Balances is crazy colors. Another decent spot is Lehigh b/n 24th and 25th. Also right off of Cheltenham Ave. and Ogontz Ave. this place called philly footlocker...The sign has and old pair of Air Maxes as the storefront.... But I agree that UBIQ right now takes the cake.
what's all this talk about Jim's and Pat's.What about Geno's.I can't stand that yellow light from Pat's Steaks.Anywayz, that shoe store in the Italian Market has some old hot stuff in there. "Hooters,Hooters,Yum,Yum,YumHooters,Hooters,On A Girl That's Dumb" Al Bundy
Screw the whole "Best Cheesesteak" debate. They barely give you any meat.
I can cook one up on my own hibachi in the Vet parking lot and make it better than any of the stooges that work at those famous places. I'd rather have my hands on my food than somebody else's hands on my food.
If you really must know, go to Abner's by UPenn. Whenever UPenn men's bball scores 100+ points in a game, you get a free steak with a ticket stub. It's only happened like twice in the last 3-4 years that I can remember.
One of the squids at UBIQ tried to call me out like I was wearing a pair of fake AJ9 lows. Sorry, but no.
Oh yeah, they have some real deals there too. (sike)$140 footaction dunks. I guess they have to rape customers to make up for the ridiculously-high rent at the Gallery mall.
Ask them about the shoes in the display case. (sb dunks, some aj retro's). they're not for sale, just to make it look like they are.
the japanese buyers swarmed on the city like locusts in the mid 1990's and cleaned out all the good vintage stock. there's really nothing left at all. (ever wonder why you can still find original kid's aj7's?)
O yea, the sneaker store at broad and olney has a bunch of old nikes and jordans in infant and kid sizes in case anyone cares. JJ reminded me. There is another store on 13th street between market and chestnut that has some old sneakers but their mostly kid sizes too. I was gonna get the Diamond Turf 2 from there but all they had was a 7.5 so I was out of luck.
Joe is from South Jersey. He don't know steaks. Abners is good though.
You're talking game, Joe. I expect you to break out the hibachi at the next summit.
And he's right. Philly got raped by Japan (and Germany, actually), so there isn't much left.
But I disagree about Ubiq. Yes, it's pricey, and yes, you can find a lot of that stuff at Footaction. However, there are no Footactions in Center City. Also, a lot of those dunks are hard to find now. Personally, I'm not going to pay $140, because I already have them, but if you want a store that has some stuff that the normal spots don't have, Ubiq is the only spot in Philly.
