So I stumbled across this dudes Myspace a few months back. He loves sneakers, and I love sneakers so it was obvious that we would be somewhat cool. He sells tons of sneakers on his myspace, and it quickly became a big thing. So I figured I'd blog and do a post on him...I sent him a few questions and here they are. Enjoy.
MrBruCru:Since when, can you honestly say that you've been a sneaker head and why?
DeadStockRic:I WOULD HAVE TO START OFF AND SAY I DON'T CONSIDER MYSELF A SNEAKER HEAD. I'M JUST SOMEONE WHO LOVES SNEAKERS AND FASHION, WHICH MANY PEOPLE DO. IF THAT WAS THE CASE, THEN EVERYONE WOULD BE A SNEAKER HEAD. HA HA...BUT MY LOVE FOR SNEAKERS STARTED WITH THE POWDER BLUE X'S. I GOT THEM THE YEAR AFTER THEY DROPPED AT THE NIKE OUTLET. I REMEMBER DUDES WOULD SAY OH THOSE ARE SO LAST YEAR. BUT, TO ME..THEY WERE GOLD. I WORE THOSE OUT. YOU WOULD ALWAYS FIND ME CLEANING THEM AND MAKING SURE NO ONE STEPPED ON THEM. EVER SINCE THEN IVE BEEN HOOKED. AT FIRST IT WAS TO BE FRESH AND DO MY LIL SHOW OFF, BUT NOW THAT IVE MADE IT INTO MY JOB ITS BECOME MY LIFE. I HAVE WITNESSED THE SNEAKER GAME GO THRU ITS TRANSITIONS, AND I HONESTLY LOVE IT. ITS GREAT TO SEE WHAT IT HAS BECOME.
MBC:If you could date any famous chick who would it be and what kicks would you buy her?
DSR:WOW. THIS IS DEF. A GOOD ONE. IF ANYONE KNOWS ME, I'M IN LOVE WITH HALLE BERRY. SO I WOULD GO WITH HER, AND PROBABLY COP HER A PAIR OF SICK BLAZERS. I CAN SEE HER PULLING THEM OFF REAL LOVELY......I'M IMAGINING NOW..HA HA
(Break) I had to laugh at that, dude is funny..so Hahaha.
MBC:Whats some of the feed back you get from Dead stock Fans? Negative? Positive?
DSR:I MEAN ANYONE WHO ATTEMPTS OR IS DOING SOMETHING SOMEONE ELSE WOULD WANT TO DO WOULD HATE...SO I HAVE GOTTEN SOME OF THAT. BUT, FOR THE MOST PART ITS BEEN POSITIVE SINCE DAY ONE OVER HERE. I HAVE HAD A LOT OF LOYAL SUPPORTERS FROM THE GET. I HAVE CUSTOMERS STILL IN TOUCH WITH ME FROM YEARS AGO. PEOPLE ALWAYS HIT ME UP, JUST TO THANK ME FOR DOING WHAT I DO.
I'M A VERY POSITIVE PERSON. I KEEP POSITIVE PEOPLE AROUND ME. DEAD STOCK IS A WAY OF LIFE FOR SOME OF US, ITS ALL LOVE HERE.
MBC:If Michael Jordan offered you 3 free Jordan's which ones would you choose and what colors and why?
1.PURPLE AND WHITE JORDAN 1'S FROM '85
2.KO 1985 JORDAN 1'S
3.1988 BLACK CEMENT 3'S
(Break) If I May have a say in this, those that you chose Ric are sick picks, I would've probably gone with the wht/obsidian blue 12's, the Original 6's wht/infared, and those KO 1's also. Haha
MBC:What do you hope to accomplish with DEAD STOCK in the future?
DSR:TO BE SUCCESSFUL...
IM GOING FOR THAT NUMBER 1 SPOT.
If you don't know who he is, hit him up on myspace, he doesn't mind a friend request LOL.
Ric' I see you, keep doing your thing. Find me something in an 8 while your at it. Ha ha.
