RiccoMachado lives in Arizona, and says you need to wear something different to stand out:
"I live in East Valley, Ariz. near Mesa, Tempe, and Chandler. I only know of two stores left that still do FCFS Jordan releases, but GRs can sit for a few days after release. There are a few skate shops out here and only one (with four stores in the Valley) that sell SBs for box price. Most places do raffles for Jordan retros (which I don't trust). I don't see too many people wearing their stuff, though. When I go to the mall, I'll see maybe one or two people with a pair of Js. I started buying ASICS, which I see damn near no one with out here. Hopefully, I'll meet some cool sneakerheads when DunkXChange is in Phoenix."
