    I agree. Also selling kicks too. Having a hard time unloading a few pairs. We need to look out for one another/friends.
    EX: If I have something you/friend wants we need to help each other out and put them on to whoever was what.
    Just my 2 cents.....

    not sure which one is the main one. you guys have been slacking in forum posts. downtown manhattan checking in. what upcoming releases are you guys excited about? right now the only ones ive got my eye on are the flyknit racers in multi. although i kinda like the camo print on the airmax 90. not that im into camos per se, i just like airmax 90s. 

    in my honest opinion, i cant stand foams. just not me. whatever floats your boat though.

    A new store opened up not too long ago on SI, called Sneaker Connect. From their Facebook and Instagram posts their selection looked promising. I went in the other day and the place itself was much smaller than I expected but the owner has a few items I never saw before. She really supports young entrepreneurs, this kid developed a clear container to display your kicks in, it supposedly preserves them. It's not much bigger than a shoe box. Was wondering if anyone was familiar with this type of item? They also sell sole preservers its a clear micro thin sheet that you tailor to your specific shoe, cut it out stuck it on the bottom, then after one use peel it off and the bottom date still fresh. A couple of Dj's from Hot 97 are affiliated with them I believe, Bobby Trends and Mike Sessions. Jim Jones did a meet n greet there too. Anyway, It's just another option incase anyone is local. I also find myself never disappointed with Kicks USA in Linden NJ. It's much bigger and they sell clothes and hats as well.

    @nycthreadhunter, I've been there. There kind of overpriced and there stock is iffy, only rarely do they have good shoes. Granted they do consignment, but so do a lot of other stores and for the only one in Staten Island that does, I would hope for a better collection. Especially with all the heat we have out here.
