The Remix documentary was on Netflix top 10 when it first came out for almost a week. The trailer was on quite a few the usual clothing/streetwear/sneaker sites. They mention that was specifically slanted to focus more on the women of that era and their impact. I also preferred fresh dressed since it covered more than the traditional urban or hip hop focused brands (FUBU, Cross Colors, etc.)
Thats pretty much what I got from the doc. Wish they would have expanded more on the appreciation vs appropriation thing, cause there’s so much black culture and influence that gets hi-jacked, white washed and basically diluted. Feel like they cut that short to throw in how fashion has become gender-less

I dont think it was terrible by any means and if your into fashion from a hip hop perspective I think its a required watch. Something I wish they covered in it, and April Walker mentioned it on Fresh Dressed, was the trend of African Americans and other hip hop fans in general sort of abandoning those brands to go back to the more traditional ones on a consistent basis. She basically felt that something like a Fubu would be hot for a moment but the main consumer would go back to Hilfiger or even Nautica. She saw that trend multiple times, thought it was interesting

I like these

Been following him since he's appeared on a couple of podcast I listen to.

He was on Inside the NBA a few months ago.

He has a couple of nice color ways of those. Like the red joints. I always forget about them come Saturday when he does the preorders.

Was he on the breakfast club? There was some cat on the breakfast club a year or two ago that had some dope shoes. I can’t remember his name.
