I got the hankering for a new chapeau so I hit up the New Era flagship to see what they were holding that was close to my heart

I’m so booted right now I can’t even talk kicks. All I want to do is rock my Timbs from here to forever. No hype, no fancy marketing, no bullshit. Just classic dopeness that stands the test of trends and time.
I scrambled to this old mom and pop shoe spot off Nassau Street when I saw they had the 7-eye moc chukkas in their window. I should have asked if they had them in my size but I hate to jinx my shoes when I don’t have my paperwork in order.
Thanks to Combat Jack he paid up an invoice I gave him for his Complex TV project. With a few extra bucks I went right after these boots. I didn’t pay my phone bill. I didn’t pay my light bill. I’m a man with his priorities dead set on his addictions.
I have a link at Timberland, but even my connect can’t scare up a pair of these handsewn 59093s. I needed this backup pair internets. I needed them like you wouldn’t understand if you don’t own a pair of these boots.
The ‘LO-End Theory was birthed as a concept from a meeting I was a part of with Timeless Truth, Meyhem Lauren, Sean Price, Roc Marciano and Thirstin’ Howl The 3rd. The idea in my mind was to pool the interconnected bases of all these artists under one flag. Not a Polo flag, but a brotherhood flag.
See, if this had been twenty years ago I wouldn’t have been able to be friends with Thirstin’ Howl. Our circles and networks would have prevented this from occurring. Now that we are in our forties we can see a bigger picture for ourselves.
Suffice to say it but I’m a fan of Thirstin’ Howl. His legendary work ethic and his professionalism make him a cultural iconoclast. Dude definitely deserves to be in the Hip-Hop Hall of Fame.
My nigga Meyhem Lauren is also instrumental in the formation of the ‘LO-End Theory. This dude builds bridges with his persona and his patience. I have the utmost respect for him as he continues his journey with force and focus.
Now that the ‘LO-End Theory has been launched its time to find another place for the event to touch down and spread the Lifestyle vibe to the attendees. I’d like to go to Atlanta to bring the Buy-Sell-Trade of vintage I.T.’s to that community, and maybe even Montreal so that we could have an Olympics themed photoshoot.
Wherever we go to next I’ll make sure I do a better job of letting the community know how important it is to support these artists for their independent trailblazing and their everlasting dedication to staying fresh.
