Last Thursday, September 1st, I had the honor of attending a private party welcoming Nice Kicks to Downtown Los Angeles. With many industry insiders in attendance, it was dope having the opportunity to check out the store before it is open to the general public (rumored) on Sept. 10th.
The two-story Nice Kicks shop is located on the corner of 9th and Main Street. I'm always in DTLA, so I had already seen and heard about this location a couple months back for the Just Don pop-up shop and I had also heard about the Nice Kicks opening up in The Bay, so it was only a matter of time before the DTLA location opened its doors as a sneaker retailer.
Inside, you saw everything from general release to rare Nike's, Adidas, Jordans, Pumas, etc. Food was provided by Fat Sal's and there was a DJ and drinks on the second floor of the shop.
Thank you Nice Kicks for the invite. It's still very surreal to me being able to attend these type of events with well-known industry folks.
