Last week twitter and facebook went into a frenzy in the sneaker world! Because some of the stores were getting the highly anticipated… NONtourage Nike SB Dunk Low…
Let me back up and give you a quick run down on the history of this sneaker…
So Nike SB made an extremely limited edition custom shoe for the cast and crew, Family and Friends of the HBO show Entourage when the series finally came to an END! The pictures of the shoe hit the internet last year and buzzed so hard the shit needed Rehab! Heres some pics of the shoe!
Signature Black on Black elephant print with the suede hits…. Now for the really fancy shit that makes this shoe EXCLUSIVE!
The ENTOURAGE logo on the Tongue… and….
Entourage logo on the insole and “The End” on the other…
They dubbed these The Entourage “Lights Out” sick ass shoe, everybody was hype on it… Then Nike kills everybodys hopes and dreams and says… This shoe is strictly for people around the Show ONLY! will not be releasing and will never see a store shelf ever in life!
After we all cried for a few weeks… Some months go by and Nike decides to release the shoe! We get happy again! Now the Show and HBO dont want the shoe to be released… So now the shoe gets canceled again!
a year goes by and… BOOM! Nike and HBO come to an agreement and decide to release the shoe! but with minor (really fuckin major) changes to it! for one, They added a gum bottom! (which is cool.. cuz gum bottoms are dope as shit!) for two, and the most obvious reason of them all… HBO said they had to take ALL Entourage logo’s OFF the shoe… So now we have some what of a similar shoe with the Elephant print upper and the suede hits.. but now with a gum bottom and NO Entourage logo’s… hence the name NONtourage!!!
But the shoe is still dope and ONLY 2,500 made in the WHOLE WORLD!
So me and the homie BOB the BARBER get to plotting out a master plan on how we are going to get our grubby hands on these shits! So the 2 stores that got them first! SOLD out in a matter of seconds! i was at work and he was at work too! so we got on the bat phone and started calling all of our connects and low key spots tryna get info on when they’re getting them and how can we get’em… After a long weekend of getting info together! We found out some stores were geting them in early this week!
So Wednesday rolled around! Stores got their shipments in and the hunt was ON! First store, SOLD OUT! Second store, SOLD OUT! Third Store… Just Got’em in… We headed out Wednesday morning before work to catch a pair! by the time we got there (which was like 25 minutes after they said they got’em) Fuckin SOLD OUT!! SHIT! We went to work! and found out about another spot that was gona release them Thursday Morning at 9! So we said Fuck It! Pack up the Chairs, Lap Tops and Heavy Jackets… We’re camping out for these shits!
I scooped Bob up around 11:45 and headed down to Huntington Beach! got there around 12:15 or so… Saw a small group already posted up and said fuck it! lets join them! Not knowing how many pairs the store had or how much they were… all we knew is when they were gona release them and some info about a matching shirt and hat! (said you had to purchase all 3 items as a PACK) We set up shop and let the night get WEIRD!
So the first 2 people in line was a guy and girl couple from riverside sleeping in their car, then 2 white dudes in fancy pajamas and beater ass True Blue 3’s, then a group of 5 skinny jean snap back asian kids from Long Beach, then some chill ass dude rollin solo… then us! With me and bob there that made a total of 12 of us sittin out in the cold! early in the night, everybodys hype, talkin, listenin to music, tweetin, instagramin, facebookin on their phones… The asian dudes was all sharing a forty, the 2 white dudes walked to iHop, so me and bob took out the mac books and dropped a movie in… PAID IN FULL! after we watched that and got hype on some hustle shit, some people started knockin out and then the fuckin WEIRDOS showed up! hahahahaa The bars on Main St. started to close so all the drunks were walking by us! and EVERYBODY that past us asked, “So what are you guys waiting for?” so one of the white dudes said “Justin Bieber” hahahahaaa and after that! everybody that asked we told them we were waiting for the fuckin Biebs! hahahaha shit was funny! We told one drunk guy we were waiting for Bieber and he got fuckin mad! he wanted to to stay out there with us so he can fuck up Bieber when he see’s him! he had a whole UFC combo he wanted to do on the Biebs! hahahahahaa! So the drunks started leaving and then the fuckin Crazy Crack Head Burn Outs started to show up!
One guy walking around with no shirt, just pacing back in forth in front of us smoking a cig straight down to the filter! i think he even lit up the filter and hit that a few times down to a roach! hahahahaa! Then he ended up leaving… Then some fat sloppy guy wearing sandals, ripped up jeans, a loose ass ed hardy shirt with a drunk ass collar showed up… talkin bout he’s a rapper and started handing out his business card which had like 5 different names on it, a email and NO phone number! and wanted everybody to “COP” his new album! hahahaa he left than the shirtless crackhead comes back.. now he just posts up in front of us and just stands there! and its cold as shit outside… we had hoody’s and beanies and blankets… this guy had on jeans and no shirt hahahahaa! Cops cruised by and the crack head bounced!
now its like 4am we drop another movie in… and kind of watch it and kind of knockin out but i was sketched out about the crack heads so i kept an eye open! 5am rolls around and i catch a solid 30 minutes of sleep! i wake up and the sun is creepin out… so i instagram’d it hahahaha
everybody else is kind of waking up from their light sleep… and now people are starting to get their morning jog on and shit! and people are still asking us what we’re doing sleeping outside! So we were still telling people the Bieber shit and also started making up new shit! hahahahahaahaaaa… Like “OCCUPY Main St” we told them we were protesting against a womens store that sold FUR! hahahaha and then we told some guy we were on Strike! and he got fuckin PISSED! hahahaa! he walked by, we said we’re on strike and he said “Fuck… Get another fuckin Job” and walked away! hahahaa! then some Burn Out with blonde spikey hair rolled up with a dirrty blanket, a empty slurpee cup and his eyes BUG’d out HUGE! he said “woah what are you guys doing in my town? we said gettin sneakers! he said “oh cool… you got any bud, a bowl, some weed?” we were like huh? and he said “sneakers are cool man.. got a bowl, some weed, some bud, some bud, a bowl?” hahaha and then just walked away! hahaha then he came back and the guy in the front with his girlfriend said something to him.. the burn out got mad and was like “hey man fuck you and your shoes.. im gona rob you… do you got a bowl or some bud, some weed, a bowl?” hahaha and walked away again! Than the strike guy came back even more MAD! talkin shit to ALL of us! saying we needed to go back to college and fuck retail and fuck striking and we dont got no education… then we told’em we were fuckin around… and all of a sudden he turned cool hahahahaaa!!!
6am and the fucking Parking enforcement cop is on the prawl! We all jump up to throw quarters in the meter! the Guy in front with the girlfriend was putting change in and the cop wrote him a ticket! cuz he said “the meter was red when i walked up” and like a dick! gave him a $45 parking ticket! a couple more burn outs walk by and then now we’re all awake and talking and chillin and a older lady walks up to the front of the line and says “are you guys camping out?” the white dude says yeah! then she reached into her pocket and said “i only got 4 bucks…” and started to hand out a dollar bill to the first 4 people! they all looked confused and refused to take the money… and then the lady says “you dont want it? arent you HOMELESS” hahahahahahaa she thought we were all homeless hhahahahaaa!! i dont know how she thought that when bob had his lap top out everybody was on cell phones hahahahaaa!! So a shit load of people are asking what we’re doing, and then a gang of other people start showing up to line up!
So we hit Jamba Juice for more quarters for the meter and some breakfast… Then i instagram’d
Now its like 7am and the street is getting crowded everybody is up and the line is getting longer… Bob through on Baby Boy to kill the last 2 hours and we all just chopped it up! 9am hit! and they started letting us in 1 by 1… First the couple went in… the guy got his pair and the girl didnt get her size! Then the 2 white kids, then the asian kid group, 4 got theirs and 1 kid didnt have enough money! Then the chill dude! and then the guy comes out and says “We ONLY got 2 Pairs LEFT” and who was the next 2 guys? me and fuckin Bob… so we got up in there! and got our pairs! and our FREE Hat and Shirt!
And here’s the exclusive Limited Edition Shirt and Snap Back
The store was called GARAGE and they played off the Entourage Logo and Font and turned into the store name! Thats how they released their packs! which was cool!
Puffy Letters on the Hat
BUT… its a dam Snap Back… LAME! hahahaaaa
So thanks to that Chick that didnt get her size and to that Asian Kid that didnt come with enough money! Me and Bob got the LAST 2 Pairs….
So we were stoked… and headed back to the South Bay… We decided to just pass by another shop on the way home to see what the line looked like! and when we got there… there was only 10 people in line! hahahaaa! so we pulled up around 10:30 and waited with them till that store opened at 12… We heard the store had 14 pairs! so we took a chance and waited to see if we could score another pair! anddddd….. we got 2 of the last pairs at that spot too! hahahahhaaaaa
and then we Instagram’d that BITCH!
hahahahaaa Our Entourage’s had an Entourage! After that we headed home to get ready to roll to fuckin work right after that!!!
