This past weekend, the PTB found its way back in the Big Apple. The event? Moves and Kicks. M&K became the 23rd official stop of this years tour. The event was significant and lived up to its name because it dubbed as the official event for the release of the Puma Clydes. Puma Clyde’s are one of if not the most iconic sneaker in Breakin history.
Little history: The name “Clyde” comes from the nickname of New York Knicks most iconic basketball plaer ever, Walt Frazier. The sneaker was designed as a basketball shoe but the Hiphop generation adopted it and made it a lifestyle street wear must have.
The 2 day event started with the official pre-party and as everyone knows, NYC knows how to throw some official parties. The event itself was hosted and organized by none other than now N.Y legend Nemesis. It featured another N.Y native DJ Ruggz on the wheels of steel. The judges? From Philly, none other than Hannibal(360 Flava), N.Y King, Jiggz(Supreme Beings) and N.Y royalty, none other than the man himself, supreme grand master Crazy Legs(RSC)
M&K featured a 1 vs 1 breakin battle for $2,500.00 dollars. The $ breakdown looked a little something like this: 1st place = $1,200.00 – 2nd = $800.00 – Semifinalist = $250.00each. With that much $ on the line and N.Y having so many top quality bboys/bgirls, you knew the talent pool would be extremely high.
