In Our Words

1 love. 2 days. 3 parties. Sound insane? Well, you know, most folks do think we sneakerheads are a bit touched! But here it was: Sneaker Pimps NYC with a live customizing battle between 5 killer female artists (Pikaso, E the Custom Queen, Kgiovanna, Fetti and d-nyce!), then an open customizing party and comp at powerHouse books' "No Sleep til Brooklyn" event, and finally a wind down party with DJ Elle and a live auction at TNewYork! Thanks to ALL the folks who made it possible! Artists, volunteers, sponsors, guests, press, etc!
