Check out the latest edition of VIBE Kick Picks! This week, we hit the famous neighborhood of SoHo—where black hipsters, Asian dreadlock rastas, and white b-girls can all be linked together by intense senses of style, a broad range of individuality, and rich NYC street culture in general.—Keenan Higgins
Let's start it off and see what our first 'sneakerhead' Gary had to say about his kicks:
"[The Jeremy Scott Adidas are] very different. It's a very unique style. Not a lot of people wear it, and I like to be different."
*Shoutout to Gary though, as we caught him coming fresh out the sneaker store. You're looking at new, out-the-box pair right here—just the way we like 'em!
"These were the first Jordans made for women by a woman. As a sneakerhead, it was only right."
"I really, really liked them. I like things with wings on them and silver is one of my favorite colors."
"I just like them."
"These are [customized] from Nike ID. I wanted some trainers that no one else has."
"After '94, it was the first retro that was easier to get. It the best quality that I've ever seen them in. I picked them up 11 years ago."
—Adam Zenou (@Adam_Zee), employee at KITH/Atrium (one of the dopest sneaker spots in NYC)
Editor's Note: These are not the Cement III's that you see every other day. Notice the Nike check on the back instead of the Jumpman logo. You WILL NOT find these in retail stores!
