Last Minutes with Oden

I've been blessed to know Woody, and i'm sure those of you who have met the man can not express the amount of love, passion, and wisdom this individual holds. Sit down and buy the guy a cup of joe and he'll change your perception on life. Check out his latest documentary "Last Minutes with Oden". Last Minutes with ODEN from phos pictures on Vimeo. Directed/Edited: Eliot Rausch Director of Photography: Luke Korver, Matt Taylor Song: Big Red Machine/Justin Vernon + Aaron Dessner

CHROME SHOES

CHROME SHOES

So, I'm workin' at the shop this Wednesday and Paul drops this box off to me: Needless to say I was juiced. I had been scoping the new Chrome shoes since the boys from up north brought samples by a few months ago. I must say these shoes are very well made. They have double stitching and reinforcement in all the right places, and the little reflective patch on the back is a nice touch, not to mention they look fly. I tossed them on to see how they performed. I first noticed the extra stiffness from the "propulsion plate" which doesn't extend...

New Store, New Website, New Blog, New Year

It has definitely been an exciting, exhausting, and humbling experience opening up LBFG. It is hard to believe that the store was just an idea back in June 2008. This of course would not have been possible without the support from my team (Pops, Jack, Eric, Christopher), family, friends, and the Long Beach locals. Considering that we've only been open for two months, a strong community has been created out of our 450 sq/ft shop, and it's truly inspiring! It is unbelievable to see how quickly the scene has progressed. It really has become something of a global movement. I...
