Evan Smith's DC Shoe Release Party

Was there ever a time that Evan Smith wasn’t killing it? We’re not sure, but he’s definitely been on a tear recently filming for his Time Trap part. There was a sneak-peek video premiere last night along with a shoe-release party for Evan’s first pro-model shoe on DC. All the homies came out to Alex’s Bar in Long Beach for a night of beers, bands and one hell of a video part. Wait ‘till you see it on Monday. It’s gonna fry your face off. Congrats, Evan!
