This video is a slideshow set to the music of Kid Cudi's "Daps & Pounds" that takes a trip Uptown to one of the livest places on earth, Harlem. Over the past 4yrs Harlem has slowly started to plant seeds in the garden that is known as the Sneaker Culture. With the likes of Atmos, House of Hoops, and Goliath RF in Harlem as well, the interest to see where Vault would rest amongst them was high. With a set-up similar to a bank robber's paradise, Vault was without a question deep with heat. Upon stepping inside you'll immediately notice quite a few gems inside glass enclosures in the floor, that's if your not distracted by the 100+ pairs of kicks surrounding you. Might I add that the kicks in the floor are not for sale says our homie King Carl, who did a video interview as well, but as we know most sneakers always have a price. Between the sneaker filled walls, backspace jammed with gear, flavorful accessories, and pristine set-up, Vault was indeed a hit. King Carl broke Vault down for us like so, "Vault is located in Harlem. Harlem is known for doing everything differently and better. We felt the need to bring that same Harlem swagger through in Vault...and between the setup and everything else we bring certain pieces to the puzzle like Nike Shox which is a very Harlem sneaker..." With that all said, peep the slideshow, look out for the video, stay fresh, and watch KicksTV.
