Rock Paper Scissors (RPS)
For a hot second Seattle’s Rock Paper Scissors was one of the most poppin’ retailers on the Internets. A small boutique with a good selection of sneakers and fitteds made RPS a staple while in business.
Most people may not realize the creativity behind the company’s name. Rock represented the hard goods sold in store, Paper represented the art, which was regularly featured within the store, and Scissors represented the RPS line of clothing and hats. Yet, even with the plug at Complex, RPS shuttered in 2013. Nowadays, sneaker enthusiasts can shop at the recently opened Bait store in the same neighborhood.
