My Live Blog will start in a few hours, but I wanted to take this opportunity to say a few things for the new readers. First, the comments are open and will always be open to your voice and opinion. If you are a new commenter, it may take a little bit for it to show up. I will try my hardest to approve all the comments for all the unregistered readers on my blog. Last Live Blog I realize really late that there were a bunch of comments unapproved, so I don’t want that to happen again. Next, there are a lot of people looking to get the release and a bunch more that don’t have access to buy the shoe at all. Like everyone not from the US (sorry guys). Normally, I don’t care to support the reseller game. This time around because I have personally received an overwhelming heap of e-mails and DM messages on social networks, I will make an exception. Since I don’t do ANY type of PICK-UPS… If you want to sell your pair you can leave a comment below with your e-mail info so the person can contact you. Simple. I don’t vouch for anyone, so don’t ask me if he’s legit. Lastly, I will try to bring you more pictures this time around and possibly some video since I now have access to wi-fi in the area.
Tomorrow will also see the launch of the KITH online site. I will have a separate blog there that will be different than this. If you have been following me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have noticed this tag #AVF. That stands for Angel’s View Finder which will be launched on KITH (more details later on what that is). In fact, after this, I will be doing a couple of post for everyone to read at that site. An intro and a little special something for everyone that is a fan of Ronnie Fieg’s “Salmon Toe” Asics and my photography. You will be able to find me at one of Kith’s tab that says BLOG and under team. You can also just go to kithnyc.com/vagrant
Hope you join me on this Live Blog and see you all in the morning.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

Yours truly with the very first RF Asics I ever bought. It’s what introduced me to his make-ups. A special shoe, for a special event.
