Straight from the LES | ALife

March 6, 2012 / Uncategorized

If you’re looking for killer kicks, there’s a door in New York’s Lower East Side that opens into one of the most exclusive sneaker shops around – ALife. All you’ve gotta do is find it.

ALife on Rivington is more than just a shop. It’s a statement, a lifestyle, and a culture that can’t be duplicated. With stores in NYC, Vancouver, Tokyo, and now online, it’s the go-to place for sneakerheads to get their hands on new releases and the dopest street fashion around. With serious style and deep roots in New York’s graffiti culture, ALife is a worldwide brand that’s taken over the fashionable streetwear scene. Their mission is to “showcase, elevate and perpetuate the downtown culture from which it is born. Alife cannot be defined by one cultural movement alone. Alife is art. THE SOURCE OF ART IS IN THE LIFE OF A PEOPLE.”

We’re seriously jonesin’ for some of their fresh new footwear, but you can check out their page and Twitter account to keep up with new releases and ill stuff in general. Their online presence leaves something to be desired, so the best thing is definitely to head to the LES for the real deal. There is no copy – check out the ALife for a taste of the high life.
