I remember being invited to the Dip Street store launch a few years ago. I thought it would be a really formal affair and I was in a suit… tie and all.
On arrival, I noticed I was not only the most formal dude, but definitely the oldest. I didn’t panic, mingled and eventually found a corner and just studied the room like I always do.
That night I met Tusa Mamba, its owner and immediately I knew I vibed with the kid(only because he’s younger, but he’s years ahead). I was impressed. I think I copped some Jason Markk shoe care and left.
Through the years, the Dip Store was where I’d get rare pairs for myself and a few people if they were special enough but the concept and culture around the store was undeniable.
With the new store opening last week, I couldn’t be more proud… I feel like it’s my store. I vibe with anybody that makes strides, anybody that keeps moving forward and anybody who doesn’t have an issue with the success of others.
Congrats to Tusa and your team. You’re doing it in our lifetime fam.
Dip or Die bitch!!
