MELROSEandFAIRFAX Never Looked So Good!

What!? A Pair of MELROSEandFAIRFAX themed Jordans!?!

We thought we were trippin this morning when we saw a pair of MELROSEandFAIRFAX Air Jordans walking down Melrose this morning! Ran out of the store where we had just ordered food and chased this guy half way down the block, but it turns out that it was exactly what we thought - a pair of MELROSEandFAIRFAX branded Nike Air Jordan sneakers!

We asked the guy if he was into street art and he said no--he hadn't even heard of the blog. Turns out his name is Damian, street name Sleep Dog. He is a photographer who likes to hang out at the Hundreds on Rosewood, and he just thought that Melrose and Fairfax was a cool name that exemplified the kind of life that he was trying to be livin. Putting them on his shoes was no small matter, as he explained to us that these are Jordan 1 lows with the cement print from the III's. Damian said that he has 250 pairs of shoes, so he clearly knows his kicks. And he showed us another M&F sticker stuck to the back of his cell phone.

Sleep Dog is a super cool cat who graciously posed for a quick photo shoot. And it was clear that this guy had taken photos before, because not only was his gear fresh, but he broke into each one of these poses like it was natural. That's wassup.

We take it as a high compliment when people take stickers because they really want them. And it is a huge compliment to hear that Melrose and Fairfax is hitting on many levels. Not only is M&F the top street art blog, but it really captures the essence of the area. It was awesome meeting Sleep Dog, and we hooked him up with a couple fresh slaps. Stay up!
