Sole., aka Oscar, has been a foundation member of N-SB in our primitive stages of 2005. Sole. resides in LA and carriers a trade mark laid back southern California demeanor on and off the boards. Sole found the site through friends who have also been members for some time (Much love ajdlt). One thing sole was sure to comment on with regards to the development and growth of n-sb is the community it has grown into. “Regionally there have always been dominant pockets and collections of members on the site. LA has a big member base, New York, the Bay. The thing that’s different is the large growth of those member bases and now the impact of the site reaching the mid-west, south, and even Europe and Asia. N-SB has stayed true and continually does it right.”
One reference to traveling, which is something sole definitely has on his agenda as life moves along btw, you can catch sole at LAX JFK in the LA area. If there’s one shop that consistently receives his business and visits, it’s LAX JFK. http://lax2jfk.com/ “There are so many shops around here that carry everything, you really don’t need to stress and go far. Aside from Supreme, you can get SB, Diamond, or whatever at pretty much any skate shop in the area.” LAX JFK is an affiliation through blood and respect. “They doing it right!” I asked sole about collecting for him and what his lifestyle is like with regards to purchasing kicks.
Chip: So is it a monthly thing, cop the next drop, or just searching for those hard to finds that don’t pop up everyday?
Sole.: I really don’t have that “gotta cop mentality.” I don’t have crates of sneakers stashed away but what I do have is a strong respect and appreciation for sneakers. …footwear in general. I’m pretty patient and disciplined when it comes to buying sneakers. So I’m not scouring around like a fiend looking for pairs. I thoroughly enjoy the pairs I own and welcome a new pair when I’m ready. No stress.
