It was waaaaay back in March that we first introduced our latest international contributor, Thom. His first post, FKOF AUS #1, covered his time at Soundwave festival and his first few weeks in the Sunshine State.
This time ’round, we have a new Shop Profile. Our last profile (from FKOF JPN homie Brandon) was the very awesome Shop Profile #1 and we’re stoked to show you guys around the Gold Coasts’ Sneak&Destroy. The shop is one of the best Queensland has to offer and stocks some of the best brands you’d expect from a great streetwear store. S&D even have their own line of dope tees!
So without further ado, here’s Thom’s shop profile…
After spending 6 months in Queensland, Australia, I have struggled to find a store worth spending my time, effort and most of all, my money on. However, little did I know that barely a 10 minute drive from my home is one of the freshest street-wear boutiques I have been to. On my first visit to Sneak&Destroy, I was instantly pleased with the Star Wars AT-AT toy on the wall, but when I look slightly lower I find all the snap-backs I have contemplated spending a fortune on just to ship over, including Obey, aNYthing, Huf and Mishka.
Before I had the time to look across the shop to the wall of sneakers that include some very decent New Balance, a rarity around here, I was greeted by the staff in such a friendly manner, I ended up sharing a local beer with them chatting about Sneakers, shops and London. For the first time in a long time, I felt like I was at home.
The apparel is way up there too, boasting a range of Rebel 8, Diamond Supply Co, Crooks and Castles and Australian brand, Butter. The guys run a pretty sick blog too, showing new stock and random bits of internet gems, including their own Cheerleader of the week which I thoroughly enjoy. So if you ever find yourself in the Gold Coast area, make sure you pop down to Sneak&Destroy and pick yourself up some garms, grab a hat and enjoy the conversation.
Big love to Thom – if you want to keep in contact with him follow him on Twitter or catch him on Tumblr. What do you think of Thom’s shop profile for FatKidOnFire? Let us know via the usual routes (email, Twitter, Facebook or the FKOF TakesQuestions page).
Peace, love and respect.
