HD2015 has to be the craziest release I've ever been to. I've never seen Nike Park The Fort packed with so many hopefuls who brought their whole barangay just to increase their chances in winning a pair. I know about a dozen heads who brought with them 15-20 relatives/friends each. Unbelievable. There were so many people I thought for a second there Nike Philippines was giving away a DeLorean DMC-12.

I arrived at the venue around 7:30pm, dropped my brother and his crew off, parked and headed to the store. PCRIZZZY was waiting for me in line and Jon Herrera was behind him. Behind Jon were my brother and his minions. After PCRIZZZY put his name down, the clip board was handed to me by the staff but Jon tried to give me a hard time (coz he thought I cut the line) and we exchanged some heated words. I can't believe dude was catching feelings over a line that wasn't first-come, first-served and only 15 heads deep. We squashed the animosity 2 minutes later. What up Jon! Saw some familiar and new faces. NTPI is hella growing. Also met some good people reppin' I S S.

Shout outs to (in no particular order) NT'ers feathertouch, bigballer23, Flashout, jeddahblaster, maxtempo (finally!), iggie, Marcuskicks, jeyps, soleXchange, foshizzles, LIVESTRONG and also to Jon Herrera and Mars Miranda. I know I'm missing a bunch of names because I must've said what up to at least 100 people that night. If you don't see your name here, email or YM me. I seriously suck at remembering names.

When it was finally my turn to draw, there were only several keys left inside the box. Unfortunately, I didn't get the GOLDEN KEY. Jon did (he was after me). If I wasn't such a nice person I would've demanded them to let me peep in the box after I got a silver key just to make sure there was really a golden key. It's all good though. I seriously think I was the only one who would've rocked them out the store with the alternate pink laces. If what LIVESTRONG posted is true, then it's such a shame because hundreds of people went out of their way to try their luck only to get got.

Maybe it was my luck (or lack of thereof). Maybe it was because people thought I had a pair of Vans on my feet (they were Verona Slip SBs). Maybe it was because I wasn't even supposed to be there (but I still rolled through to show support). Maybe it was because the shoe Gods were still mad at me for abandoning them. Oh well... 'til the next BIG release.

Thank you to Nike Philippines and Nike Park BHS for hosting the event. I suggest you guys provide some indurstrial fans next time ESPECIALLY when you've received early word on the huge number of people attending the release. Some free drinks would be nice too JUST TO KILL THE HEAT.
