Allllllrighty then! Memorial Day weekend is a good time to welcome summer, fire up those grills, head to the beach, and take advantage of the 3-day weekend sale! We’ll be clearing out all sorts of stuff and making room for the summer ahead, so be sure to stop in!
Our Memorial Day Weekend Tent Sale will be in-store only, Saturday May 25th through Monday May 27th!
When I was younger, summer meant getting Ice Cream with my family and friends. Now that I’m older, the first thing I think of when summer comes around is breaking out a pair of Vans. This summer’s choice for me was the Acid Wash Eras. When these kids Vans came into the shop shortly after, I had to pick the little man up a pair and take him out for Ice Cream at the best local spot in town, Five Pennies Creamery.
Surrounded by corporate competition, Five Pennies stands strong, serving up delicious custard, ice cream, italian ices, and ice cream cakes, most of which is home-made. E.G. and I swung by to try some of their flavors after a day of running around outside in our new Vans. Watching my summers come full circle is dope, and seeing the little dude run around roaring like a dinosaur is always a plus.

Last Friday was our 2nd poetry reading event, a well timed celebration for April being National Poetry Month! This event continues to be one of the most special, as it continues to be an intimate and personal environment that lends well for a variety of expression. The team here has been talking about this event all weekend, and we’re really thankful for the support of everyone that attended, and of course everyone that read. Thank you all again, and we hope we can have the next one soon!

Just past the midway point of April…and amongst dead leaves, rain showers, it also happens to be National Poetry Month!! What better time for us to bring back one of our most successful events – poetry night!
Dead Poets Society 2: “Prose & Con” – will be taking place Friday, April 26th @ 9pm at the shop! The vibe that evening last Fall was a blessing to the shop and all of those involved. An incredible display of self expression, spoken word, and unmatched spirit…this time around looks like it will be even better!
Please look out for our Facebook event and please e-mail email@example.com if you are interested in either attending or doing a reading. Space is limited, so please RSVP via e-mail & facebook!
This past Tuesday, you may have seen us marching around our block barefoot. A site to see, since we’re normally decked out with crazy kicks, but this was also done in spirit of TOMS – ONE DAY WITHOUT SHOES event!
As you know TOMS implements a “One For One” model, where for every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS donates a pair of footwear to a child in need. The One Day Without Shoes event was a way of spreading awareness as we saw what it was like to actually have to get around and endure the day without shoes. Living without shoes leaves people vulnerable to a variety of health risks, social privilege, and issues with self-esteem and education. Our mission was to “leave our footprint” in town by making our noise and discussing and demonstrating the cause!
We here at the shop always look to align ourselves with brands that stand for things we can agree with. TOMS exemplifies this; from their upstanding message to their greater purpose as a brand, we feel that what they’re doing is great for the international community. For those of you who may still be unaware as to what they do for those less fortunate, here‘s a post from a little while ago with an informative video.
Tuesday April 16th is this years’ date for ODWS. For people within our community, shoes play an essential role in our outfits and everyday life. We here at the shop have decided to take on the challenge, and we invite all of you to join us in a walk around the area without shoes to try and spread the message of TOMS and experience, even if only briefly, life without shoes.
We’ll all meet around 7pm here at the shop, so stop by a little before then and join us for a good cause. RSVP to the Facebook event page here.
I spammed our timeline earlier with hints and feedback from what was a marvelous day. The hints were pretty subtle, but basically we had been planning all week to ramp up the Easter festivities here at Extra Butter. The Nike releases we have coming out tomorrow allowed us to do just that!
For the high in demand “White Out” Nike Air Foamposite One’s, and the “Easter” additions for both Lebron James and Kevin Durant signature Nike shoes, we set up a fun Easter Egg hunt around our block. On either side of the road where our shop resides, we had hid little Easter eggs that contained bracelets that could earned you the right to reserve one of the aforementioned pairs.
This was one of the most fun releases we ever had, and we thank everyone who participated, and all the love we got on our twitter and instagram! Glad we can put our personality into our efforts and have it be received with your warmth!
*Some Easter eggs may have been a bit too hard to find, which means there are a few sizes of the Lebron X Low and the KD V still available. Those men’s pairs along with both pairs in kids sizes will be available tomorrow – first come, first serve!*
**All of the Nike Air Foamposite “White Out” have been claimed and are SOLD OUT!!**
We put our shoes to use. And every now and then when we close up shop we get together and have some fun. We stayed local the other night and headed to the RVC lanes to get our bowling weight up (challenge us…). Not counting the musical selection, it’s pretty fun when the lights go out and the lanes stay lit with black light and some random strobes. Ninja’s Nike Flyknit Racers looked pretty snazzy in the light, so I decided to snap a pic to share.
The enigma that we know as Dr. James Arthur aka Aruthor Vandross aka Gerald Peters aka Safety Patrol – was with us and decided to show us why any of us who DIDN’T cop the Concepts x New Balance 999 “Seal’s”, should regret it big time. The majority of this water bottle was dumped onto the toebox and his feet stayed 100% dry. Bravo again to Concepts and New Balance for this amazing collab…
Another video? We might as well right…we’re stretching these out as we continue to rejoice the amazing night this was. But getting to it, since then, my love for this band has grown tremendously. I didn’t want to come off as a homer, as this is another project that features our superstar – TK on guitar, but I’ve already been won over by the group’s first release – “Kissing Daisies” by Kira Metcalf. The formation of Color Creature is an exciting thing as they continue to work on new music (3 demo tracks that can be heard and downloaded here) and play shows like the one featured in the video below, and an awesome show they have this Thursday 2/28 at Ollie’s Point opening up for Vacationer!!
With many tracks of theirs already dear to me, the first one that got me was the one in the video below – “An Epidemic”. Give it a spin below and head to the links in the text above to learn about this talented band that I think will be making a lot of good noise in the near future!
