Gift Guide: The sneakerhead

Posted By on Mon, Dec 21, 2009 at 1:00 PM

For some gift ideas for the sneakerhead, I asked Black Sheep owner Josh Frazier and Niche owner Bobby Webster to help me out. Seeing as I'm currently wearing black flats with colored zippers along the side, I couldn't really come up with anything on my own.

Josh's list

Vans Era Navy Suede or Black Suede. One of our all-time best-selling colorways from Vans Classic, this A casual shoe that always gets snapped up quickly. $49

Nike SB Dunk Low (sail/ black)- nicknamed "top ramen/ un hemp. This Dunk is rumored to be part of a “Recession Pack” and takes its inspiration from the popular Top Ramen noodle soup that is a favorite among skaters, college students, and others on a budget. The shoes feature a nice blend of premium materials including suede, hemp and leather in bright orange, tan, and black respectively. $99

Supra TK Society Gold/ Silver Foil. This color scheme first surfaced with the launch of the groundbreaking Skytop a few years ago, and blew up when Jay Z rocked them in the Rihanna Umbrella Video. We were the only store in North Carolina to carry the OG Gold/ Silver Skytops, and we still get phone calls from people looking for this shoe. Extremely limited release on these with less than 900 pairs available in the US. Black Sheep is one of only three stores in the Southeast to receive this Supra Quickstrike, so if you’re looking for something different, don’t sleep. ($150)

Bobby's list

Jason Markk cleaner. We don't sell this but I have always thought it was a cool product and nicely designed. 98 percent natural cleaner that comes in a super cool package with a nicely designed brush. ($25)

•  Adidas Toronto Livestock. We are one of about 20 retailers under the Consortium account. Adidas Consortium partners up with artists and top tier stores for designs. The latest release we have received is the Adidas Toronto designed by Canadian boutique, Livestock. ($130)

•  Adidas x Ransom series. Once again Adidas and Canada are on the map. Ransom is a Canadian clothing line that has completely designed from scratch a line of Adidas that is outdoor-inspired. Like the above mentioned shoe, this line is extremely hard to find and is moving fast here! ($130-$225.)

Black Sheep and Niche are both located on the Camden block of Southend.
