With 25+ sneaker enthusiast years under my belt there could be lots of things to discuss, but let's be honest, I don't want to get into it all that mumbo jumbo at the moment. Whether your'e a vintage og or new to the scene we're here for the same passion, it is finally nice to see the cdn sneaker culture get love from the rest of the world. Drake's putting up massive billboards in 6ix! it also happens to be right over the new Jumpman23 store opening in the heart of downtown core, the city is buzzing with intense excitement over this all star weekend, hardwood floor in the ACC is ready! feels like yesterday but it's been 20 years since the birth of the Raptors, it's nice to see the team/city get the respect we deserve, those who get to experience some of this weekends festivities will be quite surprised at how prepared we really got for this. Also shout out to the long time family over at solecollector.com for this lil write up they did on myself and a few other cdn cats, talking about sneakers from a north pov.
To be able to stand in the middle of The Raptors home court at the Air Canada Center really does give you chills up and down your body...that lookup to the screens above is a experience that I'll never forget. Toronto is a incredible choice for this years all star festivities, our city has so much to offer for all those that will be here for the entire weekend. Looking forward to running around the 6ix with my camera those few days in Feb! if you see me out and about be sure to stop by and say hi to Uncle Luc!
