All I gotta say is NYC is #1 in SNKRS. Period. I bought me some FRESH kicks at a cool snkr store across from Bryant Park. It was the first shop we entered as the bus dropped us off right outside. Surprise, surprise – ORANGE laces sucked me right in! Also notice my LA fitted baseball cap. I just found out my head is about 7inches. I want a NY one but I couldnt find the size…oh well, looks like it says ‘AL’ in the foto!
The store had cool counters filled to the rim with snkrs! It was called:
1079 6th Ave NYC
At the GI-NORMOUS Footlocker in Times Square. It has such a wide range for men…kinda dissapointed with the women’s range.
A wide selection of Nike Blazers…I had my eye firmly set on the blue swipe ones w/ the green laces and the pink multi-colour one..but restrained myself. Forgot the name of this store…
EFFORTLESS. That’s all I have to say about ppl who sport sneakers in this town. Although sneakers are pretty common in the city, every person who wore a pair, wore them with great individual style and didn’t look try-hard. From Van s to Nikes, snkrs are just a staple of everyday life for these guys.
