In an attempt to let the world know how committed they are to their footwear line, Chrome announces their Turds For Gold Shoe Exchange. For two days only, Chrome will be slinging a new pair of shoes to anyone that sends them a worn-out pair of kicks.
"There are a lot of great shoe brands out their but few, if any, are made to handle the harsh demands of riding in the city," says Chrome Marketing Director, Matt Sharkey.
“Our shoes are built to hold up under the toughest conditions and are designed 100% to address the needs of the everyday city cyclist. Not only did we want to build a shoe that was durable and functional, but we also paid close attention to overall fit and timeless style."
The exchange begins on Wednesday, March 17 and ends promptly the next day on Thursday, the 18th. Packages must be post marked by 3/18 to qualify and should include a return shipping address and shoe size info.
Please ship all packages to: Chrome Industries Attn: Turds for Gold/Sharkey 580 4th Street San Francisco, CA 94107
So the "BIKE FILM DAY" didn't go quite to plan- so i wandered around the neighborhood, and found some graffiti artists painting some "legal walls" one of the guys i happen to look up to a lot in the painting world, his name he writes is "SABER". He, come to find out, is SO stuck up his own ass you wouldn't believe!! I actually idolize this guy?! i couldn't believe it! The SABER graffiti shot above is in the Los Angeles River, its some thing like the largest piece in the world or something like that, its down in the LA river where i like to go film so its a cool location, and i heard it can be seen from satellites from space!.. and the shot below is up the street from the warehouse i live in in south central LA. I like his motivation and i like how he gets down, regardless of his stuck up attitude i still respect him for the game.
ILL POST FOOTAGE SOON OF WHAT I DID ACTUALLY END UP FILMING YESTERDAY!
Today is school- Hopefully the day is fun! im gonna bring my camera to school today and maybe get an "exclusive cut" on the behind the scenes culinary school action! (totally not interesting- i just thought if i said it that way it would sound cool) k wish me luck!
So wow! it would be so cool if we had some of these out here in LA. I would feel a lot more safe riding around with the HORRIBLE drivers out here. I saw this on a really cool blog i like to read sometimes called Green Living Blog. It has a lot of stuff on it pertaining to bicycles and it has some other topics as well, i really only look at the bike stuff, cool site .
