DimeTV: Camping Out For The Reebok ZigTech Slash “Gold Rush”

Here’s how it happens: Someone reads a post or a tweet, which leads to a call or a text, resulting in you sleeping outside in the street for a pair of sneakers. Think it’s crazy? Think again. After the Knicks/Wizards game at MSG Friday night, I headed over to the Foot Locker on 34th Street to check if anyone was waiting outside for the kicks I told you about earlier today. And there were. With only 12 pairs available worldwide of a shoe John Wall will only wear once, as soon as NYC’s most avid collectors caught wind of the release, they left work, packed their supplies and setup shop. These are their stories.

Note: Foot Locker will open at 9:00am for the release, and after spending a couple hours hanging out with these guys, I came home and edited this piece. And my hands and feet were very cold.

What do you think?

    Always did love the diversity in the nyc, and perfect depiction of that in the clip. Sneaker coverage for Dime is prime, and other magazines need to get on that level!

    And for those mash-up heads..Here’s a mix of ‘I need a dolla’ and ‘cream’ from Wu Tang I just came up on with a d/l link..reallll nice
