obviously i'm real late on this, but i don't really keep up w/the scene anymore.

anyways, what's the deal?

where?
when? (actually, just saw in another thread it's opening in 2 weeks)

and, more of a rhetorical question, but does LA really need another 'high line' sneaker store??

There are alot of sneakerheads in So. Cal...But alot of them arent old enough to hang in a bar, even if it is a "Sole Bar".

^^^ It's not a "BAR" it's just named "Sole Bar" when you see the space you'll understand why. What does a SUSHI BAR sell??? SUSHI, they aren't a BAR it's just in their name cause that's what they serve... So what does a Sole Bar serve??? SHOES!!!

Just so everyone is clear... they AREN'T serving alcohol, it's NOT a club, it's a STORE that sells SHOES not Booze!!! And I'm pretty sure they will be around for awhile with the things they got planned there, it will be interesting to say the least...

CL pm me and I'll give you all the info on the spot... :wink:

You say I'm not The "E"??? You wanna make a bet???

The concept is not that foreign, I'm sure any one in So Cal has heard of a Denim Bar.

I won't be around the weekend of the opening, HAVASU BABY, but I look forward to checking it out.
go buy sandals!
www.jitle.us is not worth your time to go there.

I tried getting on last night and it said I was banned. I almost cried.

This idiot swears that sneakers are the only thing "sneakerheads" [hate that term] talk about.

A conversation on kicks can only go so far and so long.

good look, metalman.....pm'd u.

and did someone say HAVASU?? lol....fun spot, but it'd be a lot more fun w/more yellow brothas+sistas out there tho. i'm always down to mix it up w/all kinds of folks, but cruising down the strip on the Lake, i couldn't help but notice all eyes were on me (us) last time out. (word to Pac)

anyways, i need to get back out there and work on my tan. i'm like an albino now. lol

the spot actually sounds kinda promising.

i dunno how long it'll last. i mean, there are already a bazillion sneaker boutiques littered all around the Greater LA area. but if they make it, more powere to em. i rarely ever knock other folks' hustles.

well, staying tuned for the aftermath & pics. have fun, whoever's going. (dang, i miss LA)
