I told you my pets were obsessed with my kicks. I sat down to put my shoes on one day and looked up to see this! Caught this Kitty creepin’. Trust there is much more pics/vids like this and this, so stay tuned…
Last week the good people at RIF and ATTIC held a sneaker inspired art show in collaboration with Yojie in Los Angeles. I’m still working on putting together my own recap of the event, but in the meantime you can check out this recap of the event by ATTIC. Good times were definitely had. Click here to check out the pics.

I’m actually a little late with this post, but last week, the good people at LAX-JFK did a feature on FWS. I’m truly thankful for this and humbled that they even considered to put us up on their blog. LAX-JFK are some of the realest dudes I ever met. Definitely a solid clothing brand by good peoples. Their new lineup is ill and only available at Tradition, so don’t sleep! Much thanks again to LAX-JFK. Make sure to follow them on twitter and you can see the full feature here.

The latest edition of My Top 5 features the man behind the one and only sneaker blog dedicated entirely to Vans, OFFTHEWALLSITE.net. The homie DJ Guamstyles (above left) put together his Top 5 list of Vans projects of 2011. Check the full feature after the jump, where he talks a little about how the site got started and how many pairs of Vans are in his always growing collection. Enjoy.
One of the hardest thing’s for me to do is to call something my “favorite.” So, this year, I decided to start trying to narrow things down into lists. Currently, I’m on my quest to find the Top 5 Steakhouse’s in the greater Los Angeles area. A couple weeks back I tried out Mastro’s, and recently I checked out Fleming’s. I ordered the bone-in ribeye again to keep my reviews consistent. The steak was actually really good, but in comparison to Mastro’s, this was the Carl’s Jr. to an In-N-Out. The prices were about the same, but there was just no comparison to the quality. Also, I didn’t appreciate the portion size of the sides, which seemed far too small for the pricing, although their calamari appetizer was surprisingly really good. I’m just hoping I didn’t start this Quest on the wrong end, but we will see. The next stops will most likely be Morton’s and probably Ruth’s Chris. If you have any suggestions for Steakhouses please comment below or email here.

This year I’m starting a new series on FWS called My Top 5, which will feature various Top 5 Lists from different friends in the industry. What better way to kick this off with one of the most iconic sneakers to ever grace the Earth, the Nike Air Force 1. And of course I had to enlist the expertise of none other than the Air Force 1 Ambassador on the West Coast, my man, Hassan, also known as AFROKIX. I have never met anyone that is more passionate about the Air Force 1 than this man here. Hassan was originally raised in Brussels, Belgium in Europe where Air Max’s and runners reign supreme, so Air Force 1’s were the shoes that ended up sitting on clearance racks. What started out as an economic choice, grew to be his obsession. Today, Hassan holds a collection of over 600 pairs with over 200 of them being AF1’s. Here’s his Top 5.
The other night my fiance caught me talking in my sleep, and I woke up right after saying, “Can I order uhh…” To be honest, I was more frustrated than embarrassed because I didn’t get to complete me order! The was food I was so vividly dreaming about ordering was the Student Special at Aloha Kitchen in Vegas. I ate this at least once a week while going to school at UNLV, but haven’t had it in months! $4.49 for a teriyaki chicken bowl and a drink. Can’t get much better. Yup, it’s the stuff dreams are made of. Apparently.

Woke up to this one morning. She looked so happy, I didn’t have the heart to make her move. It must be true that pets can take on characteristics of their owners…
More pics/vids of my pets’ love affair with my shoes to come. Stay tuned.
