Originally unearthed back in the fall of 2012, the A Bathing Ape x UNDFTD x adidas Consortium collaboration is finally set to see the light of day as a part of BAPE‘s 20th anniversary celebration. Featuring the ZX 5000 alongside two colorways of the Campus 80s, the kicks see details like BAPE’s 1ST CAMO motif, metallic gold logos and premium materials throughout. We will have this exclusive collab releasing Saturday 4.27.13 at midnight online only. The release process will continue normally after that with the store opening at noon and phone orders being accepted after 5 p.m. on the day of the release. What do you think about this release?
Today was an eventful day at the store as we joined with Reebok to give our customers a little something extra for the release of the Reebok Pearlized Blue Question. Those who patiently waited were rewarded with refreshments provided by Chick-fil-a, give-aways from Reebok, and a preview of our Reebok collaboration “American Fun” Pong Sneaker to add to their experience of being one of the few to walk away with this release. Check out some images of the festivities below:

Detroit’s Burn Rubber has put a new and creative spin on the classic Iverson sneaker for their latest Reebok collaboration. But the drastic change in colorway isn’t the only interesting thing about this shoe. Check out what Burn Rubber had to say about the story behind the “Apollos Young”:
The reason you may’ve never heard of Apollos Young is because he never played one second of A professional NBA game. His new found “fast life” turned this nice little Christian boy, into a certified Rockstar. A.Y. Went from a clean cut, sweater vest wearing schoolboy to a tattooed, baggy shorts wearing womanizer with a no holds barred attitude during the preseason. It started with the double cup lean sipping instead of the Gatorade that his teammates used for refreshments. A.Y. is on record for being the first player to ever smoke a black & mild during a game. Although, as a 14 year man child, he averaged 48.7 pts, 23.3 rebs, & 0.1 assts, the line was drawn in his last preseason game. You see, the inquiry was known to wear his cell phone on him during the game, but no one could ever think that he would take it to the level that he took it. Alot of his antics were swept under the rug because of his superior skill level. One thing that couldn’t go unnoticed, was his last time on an NBA court.
This collab will be available in-store at our Moreland Avenue shop on Saturday 8 and will be released on a first-come, first-served basis. Phone orders will be welcome after 5:00PM EST on the day of the release by calling 404.880.0402 ext #2. Make sure to get here early, because like the career of Apollos Young, this release will be over quick.
Returning to the past, Jordan brand has decided to bring back the Jordan XII “Obsidian” colorway. This colorway was designed to be the shoe Jordan played in during the 1997 All-Star Game in Cleveland, but the “Playoff” colorway was chosen instead. Set to release June 23rd, the Jordan XII Retro “Obsidian” will be available in-store only at our Moreland Ave shop for a retail of $160 USD. No pre-orders will be allowed on this product. Phone orders will be welcome after 5:00pm EST on the day of the release by calling ext. #2 at 404.880.0402
UPDATE: Sold out!
This Saturday, 2/26 is sure to set off a big weekend for sneakerheads and collectors. We’ve got three big Jordan and Nike releases arriving in-store only from our Moreland Ave. shop this Saturday. The first in the lineup are the remaining two styles in the Nike/Jordan Black History 2011 pack, the Jordan III BHM and the Nike Zoom Kobe VI.

You can’t really go wrong here. Take your pick…scoop any of the three and you’re goooooood.
