shopping this sale is a lot like shopping at nordstrom rack - sometimes you hit the jackpot and sometimes you don't. don't expect to see the same styles in mercer or sway & cake, and especially don't expect to find an abundance of the most popular brands (seven, rock & republic, true religion)!

last day for triple's mother of a sale

hella late on this, sorry!

The Mother of All Sales...
So we started talking about moving Triple back in August and went ahead and shut it down in September to make the move. For the time being we're going to wait out the financial collapse before making a move to re-open. But, we've gotsome leftover product that needs to go, as it ultimately doesn't belong in the other two stores.

So, here's the deal...
We've got a ton of stuff from Nike, New Balance, Reebok, Puma, Clae, Creative Rec,Onitsuka Tiger, and more that all need new homes, preferably in your closets, so we're gonna have a huge sale.

We're talking Dunks,Blazers, Pumps, 574s, 1400s, Clydes, Bode Baskets, Russells, Rollins,Parkers, and more. There's also lots of stuff for the ladies too,Dunks, Blazers, Flippers, DiCocco Hi, Freestyle Hi, etc.

So "what's the hook?" you ask... well every pair of shoes is

That's right, Forty dollars, two Twenties, four Tens, eight Fives, a sock fullof pennies, FORTY BUCKS, I don't care how you bring it as long as its CASH!
NO TAX, NO CREDIT CARDS, NO BULLS#&T, just $40.00, cash, out the door, box of fresh kicks under your arm and a smile on your face!

No early birds, no previews, get on queue like every one else.
above King's Hardware and Rudy's Barbershop!

free screening of 'rebirth of a nation' @ SAM - sunday

in collabo with the Langston Hughes African American Film Festival...

"Rebirth of a Nation" by Paul Miller (aka "DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid") is a remix of D.W. Griffith's 1915 film The Birth of a Nation, which was highly controversial due to its graphic portrayal of racism in the post–Civil War south. Miller's remix deconstructs one of the most influential and inflammatory movies ever made, while drawing striking parallels to present socio-political conflicts in America. The film includes Miller's original score, performed by Kronos Quartet.
