While most of us have been able to find our go-to websites when it comes to our online shopping needs (and even some specific options for sneaker websites), there’s still nothing that tops the in-store shopping experience—especially when it comes to sneakers. With New York being one of the world’s fashion and sneaker capitals along with London, Paris, and Milan, there’s an abundance of dedicated sneaker shops scattered throughout the city that are well worth your time, experience, and money. Whether you live in the city or plan on taking a trip there in the near future, a sneaker shopping activity may be on your list of things to do, and if so, we’re here to help you out with a roundup of some of the best sneaker stores in NYC.
Of course you have the major brands/flagship stores such as Nike, adidas, Finish Line, Reebok, etc., but seeing as though you can find plenty of those anywhere, we’re keeping this mostly to boutiques and consignment shops. Below is a helpful list to get you started, and make sure you grab a slice afterwards too.
