We were just informed of probably the most legit Independence Day parties of any store this side of the Mississippi. Remember Independence? The store specializing in handmade shoes by Chicago-based Oak Street Bootmakers that moved in with Shrine on Oak? The store's mantra is all-American and will be fully realized tomorrow night from 6-9PM at the shop. Budweiser will be served, clothing is 20% off and five new Oak Street Bootmakers styles will be released. [Racked Inbox]
