VH07V SPOTTED!

This week's "Spotted" shot for VH07V is of University of Hawaii Men's Basketball star Forward Isaac Fotu. Bruddah Isaac (@Ifotu42) and I got to talking on Twitter and it turns out that he likes the brand. He wanted to buy some VH07V gear so we met up for the exchange. What a cool guy! As a season ticket holder, I was stoked to meet one of the team's baddest players (IMO)! Best of luck to Isaac and the rest of the team this season! And mahalo again for the support Isaac!
