They had damn near every J’s and 95′s you could think of and the best part is no one really wears J’s down there anymore so they were all on sale and at a great price.
Now anyone that has ever been sneaker shopping with me knows that I’m cursed by what I call the LJ 8.5. What the LJ 8.5 is anytime I find a great deal they only have LJ’s size 8.5 and yes the curse was continued in TT (LJ wish you were wit me big homie).
Just to let you feel my pain, they had the 3′s in baby blue only 8.5, 13′s only 8.5, 95′s in all sorts of rare colors, only in 8.5 and the one that hurt the most was the 10′s in cream color only in size 9. As much as I loved the store, I had to leave in disappointment.
Now I was lucky enough to roll with one of TT’s young football stars Runako Sheppard who is a sneakerhead and one thing all sneakerheads share is the pain when you don’t get the kicks you want, and I really wanted the 10′s. So he said to me “doh worry jed, we’ll go into town and I’m sure you will get what you want”. So we jumped in a maxi and headed in town. We started at Independence Square; they had all kinds of sneakers but not my 10′s. Then we went to Fredrick Street – I copped some nice Air Max but still not my J’s. Then we went to Henry Street and were in the last shop and I asked the man if he had the 10′s, he looked at me and said “dem ol ting, yeah but only one size left”. I could not help but feel like the LJ 8.5 was going to put its spell on me again. When the worker came from the back he said “partna we only have those in 11″. I could not help it Runako looked at me and said “wayyyyyyyy ya like yourself now” and you know what, he sure was right.
After a long day and couple of panty hose socks (they give old cut up panty hose to use as socks if you are wearing sandals) the 10′s are now a part of the TLK family. Enjoy the pics and if you look close there is an extra sun ray from the Sneaker Gods.
