Santa came a bit early this year, via the U.S. Postal System! My sole #BlackFriday indulgence happened during the @graceeleyae #BOGO Sale, where I chased the #rainbow and stocked up on some new Slap Caps.
I’ve come to rely on the satin lining of Slaps to protect my locs, but I’m also devoted for another important reason. While packing for my trip to #Somaliland back in late June, I knew enough about #Muslimculture and tradition to realize I’d need to keep my head covered during the entire journey. I planned to bring most of the large, flowing scarves I owned, but didn’t fully consider how much I’d need to ensure that none of my hair was loose.
Slap Caps saved the day. I’m so obsessed, I packed my blue, black and gray ones, even though I’d only be there for a week. But without having fully connected the dots beforehand, I was completely prepared! And when you’re hanging out with living legends like the indomitable #midwife who built the @ednaadanhospital, you have to be on point 24/7. That’s why Slap Caps mean so much to me, and why I’ll remain a huge fan!

Due to safety concerns, Solefly has had to postpone the release of the coveted Miami Art Basil. An individual "accidently" leaked the location of the incredibly hyped release. Naturaly crowds formed and eventually became unruly. It was reported that a police officer was injured and that it got to the point of police in riot gear having to tame the crowd. This is the dark side of the sneaker game that none of us like. It makes us look ridiculous to a world that already doesn't understand the sneaker and Streetwear community and our lifestyle. Remember just last year when pretty much everything was a GR. Don't make it that way again. The hunt is part of what makes it addicting. Flexin getting that W when everybody else took the L. Love the culture. Respect the lifestyle. Don't damage it. Stay up fam ✌✌ #respecttheculture #respectthelifestyle #calmdown #sneakerculture #sneakercommunity #sneakerheads #tohype #dipped_nation
FOOD FOR THOUGHT! We ALL have a mission in this life. Learn to love and appreciate the folks around you for YOU, there’s a reason why they’re there. If they fade away in the process, then so be it. Stay true to yourself and remember those who held you accountable ✊🏾 #nocap #respectthegame #respecttheculture
