With much anticipation the November releases from Nike SB have arrived and almost gone in one full sweep. Before we had the chance to post up news about the much talked about and wanted "Gucci's", was as quick as they sold. There is still a small run left over at both our Bayshore and Huntington locations. Get 'em before they are gone forever. We have to admit that the colorway does stay true to the iconic brand.

Now, if you weren't able to cop your Gucci's, SB has also released the new "HUF" Blazer. Available in both a white and black colorway, the clean cut blazer is offered in a tone on tone swoosh canvas style, very reminicent to the "Chuck Taylor". The November apparel to match should be coming any day now . Stay tuned.
