It’s not hard to be one of the best spots for your sneakers and for your urban kit in general if Kicks Hawaii got your back. I’m a devoted fan of the fine work these guys put in the communication about what they love. Quality instead of quantity and a lot of good fun. I don’t ask for more when I’m peepeing some sneakers in a newsletter. Kicks Hawaii has this kind of magic and I thought that even their Chicago affiliation, St Alfred should be in those ranks. It happens that my homies from the Blackout crew went on a US trip that was including Chicago and I gave to Pedro “Gaming” P the address and told him that the spot deserveded a visit.
What a surprise that the whole collective of spaghetti friends got treated so kindly from St Alfred staff that Adel “Skateboard B” B had to say that he never received a better service before. Dude traveled around and knows what good service is: friendly and spontaneaous people that hooks you up about the cool things to check in the area without forgetting to be a professional. That map on top is living proof. The sales assistant found the time to draw to my friends a survivor map of the area. Some exclusive gear is what they had in their bag and a good smile is what they had on their face at the end of the day. Imagine my smile when I saw this St Alfred New Era 59fifty cap in micro buffalo flannel (is it correct to label it like this?). Pedro said it’s for my birthday but being a Virgo, it’s a september thing in advance. How dope! Clean and mean, this red and black with a dark green underbrim and satin interior is so big willie style that even Will Smith would welcome me in Miami with a high five if he sees me wearing this. Let alone that red, black and dark green is a winning combo this year for the wannabe pimp that plays the game. I had this from Pedro “Gaming” P, it all makes sense.
