This have been in the works for quite a while now. A new segment for the blog other than just going around and taking photos of sneakers of people. But of course, sneaker hunting is still what this blog is all about. This new segment is just another project about sneakers and people, but now, a little bit more personal. We'll know who is featured, know what they do, and what they like.
About who will be featured in this segment? Here, it will be about people whom I find interesting that loves sneakers. And hopefully you guys will find them interesting too.
Sneaker Junkies, a compilation of interesting people's love and idea for/of sneakers.
First up, the band Radical Something. I would say it's kind of strange on how I knew this guys. I stumbled upon their music on Hypetrak, and upon hearing some songs I got hooked. Being the twitter-talkative as I am, I tweeted about it them, not knowing they have twitter. The next thing I know @WeAreRadical tweeted me. We exchanged thoughts for a while, and eventually led to do this feature. It was just timely for the idea I was molding at the moment, and they were pretty cool, so I thought why not start this project with them. So here's the trio answering a couple of questions, and some photos of them which they sent me.
We are Radical Something, composed of Loggy, Josh Cocktail and Big Red.
