This past Sunday, MTV2 launched the premier of Funk Flex: Lace’d Up. The new segment scheduled to air during Sucker Free Sundays is a partnership between Funk Flex and Foot Locker which has the radio personality traveling around the U.S. to talk to collectors, designers and celebrities about their passion for sneaker collecting. The first episode, filmed in Foot Locker’s 34th Street location in New York City, features interviews with hip-hop artists Fabolous and Wale, female designer Vashtie Kola, who’s responsible for creating a recent Air Jordan 2 for the ladies, and Air Force 1 enthusiast Mayor, among others.
Since Viacom keeps a firm grasp on their content, the only place you can watch the premier episode of Funk Flex: Lace’d Up is through the MTV2 website. The video is broken down into 4 parts – Introduction to the Sneaker Game, Limited Editions and Designers, Meet the Sneakerheads and The Ultimate Sneaker Collector.
