I was so busy last week with the show opening that I almost forgot about the opening of UNDFTD in Silverlake. I just happened to be in the area putting up posters for the show, so my timing was incredibly lucky.
The store itself is pretty nice, and is much larger than the other 2 stores, but there is something missing in the design and detail. It's just not quite as nice as the other storefronts. However, they do have more room (although more room does not = more shoes for some reason) and they use the extra room to display their accessories (hats, t-shirts, Nike Air-U-Breathe jackets). The clerks are super nice and helpful, as usual, and the place is always packed (the two times I have been there). I do wish that they would carry the VISVIM line at the store, but they said that they were only available at the La Brea and Santa Monica stores. In case you were wondering, yes, I did sell enough paintings at the show to pick up at least one new pair of shoes and I will be taking a long hard look at the VISVIM Skynard ring.

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the show. Especially Matt and Betsy, who came in from Austin just for the opening. Everyone had a lot of fun, and I think that I speak for the entire Igloo when I say that I am glad it is all over and I can't wait to do it again (next year).
