Philly is a good spot just let it stay on the low.
Cosign. Come on VJ, you trying to let everyone in on our little secret? People are already starting to catch on and making it harder for some of us. But I do agree a little bit, we do need to build Philadelphia's sneaker community.

You can say that again. Way too many hypebeasts in and around Philly. Walk through the gallery or down south street and all you see is fake everything. From Bape's to J's. It's pretty sad. We need to build the sneaker community up.

Yeah its legit, Sneaker Villa is one of the best places to buy kicks because you can ALWAYS talk them down. There is also a Sneaker Villa, Ubiq, and Kicks USA in the Gallery. There is also another Ubiq on Walnut Street. There are a few sneakers stores on Chestnut Street.

Which shops are better and for what reasons?

Ubiq isnt bad but now they think they are cool just because they sell supreme. If your going to sell supreme at least sell it for retail those dudes have shirts for 44 when they are only 32 at Supreme NYC. They always check out your sneakers they treated me great because I had my Jedis but they gave my boy horrible service because he was wearing some regular sneakers.
WTHN gets the best releases but they are!*+#$*#*!. I walked in and the dude was just grilling me the whole **$*#%% time. Even when I asked a question that!%%*#+* was giving me an attitude.
Pedestrian/ Deep Sleep/ Made to Order have got to be the best shops too bad they dont sell sneakers.



Does philly really have sneaker heads or simply hypebeast?

Does it really matter? When this whole trend started everyone wanted to see who was a "Sneakerhead". $%!$ that man just buy what you like. Im from NYC and theres alot of hypebeasts in philly. But then again who cares?

daffy lol haha sike naw but u bring good points. iono its some heads but they are older. alot of younger hypebeast are around all wearin the same thing, all gettin the smae deals an alll tryna be equally exclusive. @ dunkxchange when they said 21 an up could get drinks know how many even showed id to get to the drinks as suppose to those that new they shouldnt even try.... but somehow these kids cuz enough lawns to get espos, lol

the clothing stores are hot. an actually they do have sneaks on the low. i thing pedestrian veered away from it alot. but ubiq. i mean i even know a hea dor two in there an i get@$$!@ for not ALWAYS coppin. i have a thing about keepin relationships so if i go in a store i try to buy something but when theres nothing an i dont really wanna spend 200 on a pair of sneaks i cant wear then thats not my fault... we can only build the culture an not shut it down.. im not a fan of whtn either but iono they never have nething for me. they killed it around opening with the 1 time only an after that.. ummmm. but thats me. i like old stuff i couldnt et when i was younger

summits coming soon

There are a whole lot of hypebeasts in Philly...myself included, who doesn't feed into the hype every once in a while?

i have a thing about keepin relationships so if i go in a store i try to buy something but when theres nothing an i dont really wanna spend 200 on a pair of sneaks i cant wear then thats not my fault...
I agree with you on this one VJ, the only reason I didn't cop those Spi'zikes off of you is because you wanted close to 200 for them...I REALLY wanted those Easter Dunk, but you traded them image...I still might cop those Franks off of you though, I just gotta pay for a few presents and hopefully I'll still have the money left over.

I've never had a problem at WTHN. Always a good atmosphere. Sometimes it's a little weird being the only person in a small store like that, but whatever.

Same thing at UBIQ. Never had a problem. Who cares if they stare you down. I'd much rather be left alone to just browse through then have an annoying sales person constantly bothering me (ie: Premier).

To be honest, I don't buy many of these types of clothes anymore because I can't wear them with work. So unless something really stands out to me, I don't bother with it much like I used to.

I went to Dunkxchange (I was in the Hunters). I got there around 4:30 and was out by about 4:45. It was pretty much what I expected. I thought there would be samples and upcoming shoes or other rare older shoes on display, so I was disappointed about that. Music was good, but I'm not going to just start up random conversations with people, so I didn't feel the need to hang around. I knew going there that I wasn't going to buy anything. I'm not sure if I'd go back next time. I think they could get a lot more interest if prices were cheaper (vendor tables $100 and cover $10). I'm not sure what this money went towards, but I didn't feel it was worth it.

thanks to 4wrestling im glad i didnt go to dunkxchange i had some supreme clothes i wanted to get rid of

i havent visited afficial yet but when i go back to philly for next semester ill remember to check it out and no doubt ill be all over philly when the X/XIII package comes out

i like philly though

it feels weird that in order to cop some sneakers in NYC you have to line up for 6+ hours and in philly you can easily walk in and cop the change feels good
