Owner Gene Han transformed the former Rugged Sole shop into a sneakerhead’s dream—walls are lined with hundreds of kicks from brands such as Nike, Adidas, Vans and Converse. Although you’ll find a small assortment of guys’ streetwear staples, such as G-Star Raw jeans ($144–$210), Only NY graphic tees ($32) and Play Cloths illustrated tanks ($28), sneakers for men ($50–$300) and women ($45–$250) are the store’s specialty. Men’s highlights include Nike classic high-tops ($120) and Opening Ceremony x Adidas limited-edition neon-detailed sneakers ($178). Ladies will find Opening Ceremony x Adidas canvas printed styles ($90) and Vans classic slip-ons ($42–$55).
