Shoe Gallery is most definitely one of the best sneaker shops in Miami, if not THE best sneaker shop in Miami. We’ve been customers for years and have tried to support them every step of the way. They’ve done various collaborations throughout the year with Adidas, Reebok and more.
But this past Fall when Danny and crew announced a new sneaker collaboration with Reebok but all we saw was the hashtag #FAW, our brains started ticking. What is a #FAW? Well, a few weeks later we get the big reveal that it stands for “Flamingoes At War” and was the theme of their new sneaker collab with Reebok that was to release on November 30, 2013.
You can dive deep if you’d like with the meaning and maybe assume its some kind of subliminal diss to a few unnamed designers that have taken that “flamingoes in Miami” thing a little too literal, the shoe was super unique with its pink suede meshed with the camo.
You can see and hear Danny from Shoe Gallery discuss the release and the story behind its creation…
