Pull up your tight sag and run your ass over to 169 Bowery to peek the new Reebok concept store called FLASH.  It’s here for only one month and each week they will be releasing a limited edition shoe that only has a shelf life of that one week, then it’s replaced by another limited edition shoe for the following week. 1 month = 4 shoes to collect in all.  The store will have limited edition apparel and other footwear as well.  Be sure to go on the days where the young whipper snappers won’t be running around and acting like those lady’s when they sell wedding dresses at a discount.  You know, like this:

SHOP // UPPER PLAYGROUND OPENS IN NYC

October 22, 2008

Let us all bow our heads and have a moment of silence for this momentous occasion.  Upper Playground, one of the Bay Area’s best exports, has finally landed in New York, by opening a location in the East Village.  Upper Playground is a store, clothing line, blog, gallery, activists, artist home amongst all other things awesome.  I would personally consider them the “Conglomerate of Cool”, yes that is my term, if you use it, you better source it. Ahem…hint hint.  We at Deviant Decorum have been a huge fans of U.P. for years now and is always a mandatory stop in our Bay Area travels, them and HUF of course.  How can you not love a place that uses a walrus are their mascot?  Their gallery, FIFTY24SF, has also been putting up some of the best shows for street artists for some time now and intertwining them with releases in their retail store.  You know all those David Choe, Mike Giant, Sam Flores, Estevan Oriol, Usugrow shirts that we rock and the faux streetwear kids always ask, “where did you get that shirt?” and we lie and tell them “Urban Outfitters”, well they came from Upper Playground.  Don’t worry, those kids probably don’t read this blog anyway, they are patiently awaiting the next set of orders from their supreme commander Kanye West on how to act like a prick.  Talented? … yes.  A Prick? …….. yes.  Talented And Not A Prick? …… Upper Playground.  Go to the store:
