Nice Kicks Store Opening Recap

This past Saturday, February 27th, 2010, Nice Kicks opened the door to its official retail shop in the heart of Austin, Texas. Nice Kicks officially opened up its doors, at 11 AM, to a very long line of attendees that were present since 7AM that morning. Nice Kicks friends Bun B and DJ Clark Kent helped celebrate as the latter DJ’d at the party later on that night and Bun B hung around the shop and welcomed everybody in (Bun B also gave the first person in line an autographed pair of Copper Foamposites).

There were many more Nice Kicks friends and fans at the opening in which the majority of them had on heat and helped celebrate with us. Click here to see the entire photo recap in its entirety. ?Special shoutout to CtotheJL,?Dreaded Photo, and Sid Ashford & Karlton Johnson for the photos.

Much thanks to everybody for the support!

  18. arrjae says:

    correct me if im wrong,
    were those the Silver Anniversary 9s, that Bun was wearing?

    b/c they look like the lowtop retros….
    and the material looks like patent leather….

    i could be wrong, it could just be the angle of the pics though….

  19. arrjae says:

    sorry to add to my ‘rant’
    but the laceholes are also chrome, which were on the retro lows….
