Saturday, April 11, two Spring Street streetwear shops are hosting release parties for the hottest new sneaks and hats. From 7-10 p.m., Suite Sole celebrates the April Nike delivery with music from DJ JECTWON. Check out their new Carolina Shiners Cap, the Major Threat X U God Cap, and the cherry-print Nike Dunk High, which apparently reminds owners Gus and Andrea of PacMan. "With yellow laces, and a yellow outsole, these are doing it's best to seduce Mr. Pacman . . . and it's working. I'm pretty sure I saw a pair with a good amount of cherries already taken. Pacman, you stud you." Additionally, mens' Ts will be half-off and select shoes are 30-50 percent off. Just down the street at Continuum Skateshop, enjoy refreshments, music, and new releases with 25 percent off select Nikes. The after-party is at Shine with DJ Joeski from 10 p.m.-1 a.m. Call (843) 364-1053 for more info.
In other Suite news, Gus and Andrea took it upon themselves to award Byron for being voted Best Street Character in City Paper's annual Best of Charleston survey. Read about it here.
