LESEXPRESS POG Essentials

This summer Solepack got to roll with another up and coming NYC outdoor summer hoop league-the LESEXPRESS. It ran in lower Manhattan between Forsyth and Christie Street, boasting players with past NBA, current NBDL and oversea pro league experience. We had the pleasure of outfitting some of the summers best Players of the Game (POGs) with our SP-1. We were glad to get players exactly what they need to travel the city with their kicks on ice. Much love & blessings to the commish Brian Gardenhire for his vision and welcoming us on board. See the league here:
