whats goin' on with the customized sweatshop dunks here at stonesthrow? I'm not biting the hand that feeds me or anything (b/c this message board is the dope) but, I never saw the majority of the ST cats to be too terribly into somthing that seems so image related.

Don't get me wrong, they look nice. I think the Doom joints are the best ones yet, but whaddup?!


***it goes without saying that these guys can obviously do what the fuck they want....i'm just causin' a stink, i guess***

Man I could be wrong but I think everyone is blaming the wrong people. I don't thing ST and DOOM are going to Nike requesting these shoes to be made. I think Nike just makes them for them.....on some...

Nike: "You know who really needs a shoe? Stonesthrow Records" I personally like the idea but then again, I'm a sneakerhead. De La Soul has a shoe and it's DOPE (the HI's).

Mike didn't approach Nike and look how that turned the sneaker world on it's ass. I don't think any of these cats approached the shoe co.'s for any of that biz. It's all image and marketing like someone mentioned.

Yeah, truthfully, I thought that the shoes are aftermarket customized joints. I didn't think that Nike or ST are officially collabing on them. I just thought they were/are tricking the shoes out or having some artist do it....again, after market....either way, who knows.

i don't care, to be honest.

the shoes look dope,
but i know they'll be some insane price so i won't be buying them
but if other people do then thats cool for them

i don't see how this in anyway has to do with the quality of music that they put out though
it's a shoe, people. relax.

and i'm laughing out loud at anyone talking that "sell out" shit
what, Stones Throw can't make money???
they gotta stay broke to stay real?

as long as they keep putting out dope music, what more could we ask for?

putting out good music... that how a label stays around...

a decade shows proof..


but why sneakers??? selling exclusive mix cd's at the concerts. That last longer and you can't really floss it.


evreyone is entitled to earn a respectable living. Its just a matter of how you promote your product.

got no problems with stones on itunes

no problems with collabs with tv shows.

problems with kicks.... yes.

the quas skateboard was alright... sneakers ughhhh no... whats next quas condoms <_<

I'm trying to understand who said "sell out" who said Stones Throw "can't make money" and who said "they gotta stay broke to stay real".

??? Was that some other thread or somthing?

I'm trying to understand what the big deal is?

Like I said, I DON'T THINK STONESTHROW OR DOOM SOLICITED NIKE TO MAKE THESE SHOES

Just like De La Soul didn't solicit nike when they made the De La dunk.

I appreciate the shoes because I'm a sneakerhead....I buy shoes and set them on my shelf like someone would do an action figure....not to show them off....that's me though.

geez...


off topic.....it seems like the "quick edit" function on here is slower than the "full edit" <_<

It was stated already but Nike did this under their own accord... also a Quas brick would be dope.

lol alright.. i was kinda putting some words in some people's mouths.
i was just responding to the general feeling i got from some of the people in this post

i just hate to see independent artists get turned on by their fanbase when they try and make some $
as long as the music stays the same, i've got no problems with them doing what they have to (with obvious exceptions - i.e. Madlib doing a PSA against weed, or DOOM selling acne medications)

but yeah, sorry if i came off kinda harsh.
reading it back - i do sound like kind of an asshole, lol.

Oh, I got ya'. I honestly, haven't gotten that vibe from this thread though. And I wasn't trying to say any of that either. I just saw the product to be an interesting one for ST to be involved in.

I would crap my pants if I saw Madlib doing a PSA against weed. Remember, way back in the day, when they'd make clelebrities do anti-drug PSA's when they'd get busted? Sunny Bono had to do one...I have it on record. I used to open my mixes up with it.
