Happy Halloween From Rime

Hey folks, it’s J.T. I rarely make appearances on here but under the circumstances of the storm and lack of a true Halloween I thought I would “kill” two birds with one axe. Anyway, hope everyone is safe and sound but if you find yourself without power and suck in your house for the 3rd day in a row it might be a good time to come down to Rime and catch up on what’s new, say hi, and buy me a drink. If your out and about tonight stay safe and remember never accept candy from strangers in a van.

Moving on Up(town)

The official countdown has begun! After half a decade in Brooklyn, Rime is expanding the family to the Upper East Side. Are you ready for Rime East?

Something Wicked This Way Comes…

The diverse and densely populated Upper East Side of Manhattan is defined as the area between 59th Street, 96th Street, Central Park and the East River.  Once known as the ‘Silk Stocking District’, it boasts some of the most expensive real estate in the United States and, given the population density and high per capita income, is often touted as the home of our country’s greatest concentration of individual wealth.

As of the 2000 census, there were 207,543 people residing in the Upper East Side. Including some of the most famous of New York’s celebrities and historical upper-class families—Astors, Rockefellers, Roosevelts, Kennedys, Whitneys, Dukes, to name a few— guess who is crashing the party come this Oct.? Yours Truly! Coming soon RIME EAST will be moving in to new digs just off of Lexington Ave. This will allow us in addition to our original Brooklyn location to offer one of the finest curated sneaker selections in the city not to mention our unbeatable customer service to our loyal clientele Uptown that has been making the trek down to Brooklyn over these years. Stay tune for details…

10 Biggest Sneakerhead Misconceptions – Kicks On Fire Post

I ran across this entertaining article a few weeks back on Kicks On Fire and have been meaning to share it with you. Check out a portion of the original post below and follow the link to read it in it’s entirety. Let me know your thoughts on the matter…

“The sneakerhead culture over recent years has made a major shift from what it used to be. With resellers, media coverage, publicized camping, and, unfortunately, murders, sneakerheads can get a bad wrap. Even with the new Lebron 10 releasing soon at an unprecedented $300+, sneakerheads continue to be the blunt of the joke for poor money management and prioritization skills. As a fellow sneakerhead, it seems unfair some of the labels that have been placed on the majority of the sneakerhead family. With that said, we wanted to take a look at some of the biggest misconceptions of sneakerheads and clear some things up.” Link
