The streetwear master hit up all the usual hot spots in NYC, where he spoke with resellers and sneakerheads about the highly coveted kicks. He tested their Wotherspoon/Air Max knowledge with some trivia, discussed their methods of securing the 1/97s, while also attempting to score his very own pair. You already know there was some flashing of the cash and some negotiation efforts.
