Sneaker Pimps Philly 2011 – Event Recap
The Sneaker Pimps traveling tour continued this past weekend, stopping at one of the most historic cities in the entire nation. Philadelphia was home to this latest Sneaker Pimps event, which featured a live performance by Kendrick Lamar, the latest signee of Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment label. Aside from the live music, Sneaker Pimps Philly featured a number of sneaker vendors and showcases for buy/sell/trade purposes. Where will Sneaker Pimps stop next? Check out the event recap below to get a feel for the event and let us know if you’d consider coming to one of these events!
Event was good as a vendor, a lot of opportunity. BUT, sucked as a sneaker event. 87% of people in there were only there to see kendrick lamar.
shit looked retarded glad i missed it ...... ...... ...... sneaker events should be about vendors trading and selling sneakes and gear not some lamb rap concert if i wanted to eatch a beat show i go do that oooooo well maybe one day we might get a sneakercon type event that would be what im feeling ......
What happened to the picks of what people r wearing on there feet I can care less about the rest who wants to c nobodys posing for pics???
Sneakerpimps philly was lame. Wasn't what I thought it would be its just a traveling concert with oh yea sneakers there also. A big excuse for people to dress in their best kicks and freshest gear and strut around. I saw the guy wearing the movie props on his feet. They were sold for a good cause I'm not arguing that but that is the pinnacle of hype. Should have more vendors and make it more like a dunkexchange or sneakercon.
Turns out the LeBron 9 is cool now huh? This guy Wale was seen wearing the Cannons. Does that mean ya'll are allowed to be seen in these now? And they are no longer "ugly"?
Wearing Nike Mags in public feels embarrassing. i guess coz they're not really sneakers, more like movie props. Maybe if they had power laces it'd be all right. But it is a way of telling ppl you have a lot of money to spend on accessories though. I guess thats why ppl buy Ferraris. Looked like a fun event though!
I kinda agree... I would rock em as part of a Marty McFly costume with the auto dry jacket, blue jeans and snapback... I'd win any costume contest!
I'm that douche stop hating the purpose of the wearing the shoe was to show love. And people rocking yeezy and other limited shit so what's the difference. If cudi or ye came in the wearing them y'all wouldn't say shit. Chill it's just a shoe I own 2. I work hard have. 3 degrees so I can afford it. Fall back.
those pusheads are mad fake--look like air force ones. Mine are from flight club -- can believe philly representing fakes!
The Larry Johnson Converse. OMG those bring back memories of fifth grade. This was way better shoes than the last Sneaker Pimps event.
