Upper West Side

Sneakerheads of all ages flock to this brick-walled space for brightly colored and limited-edition kicks from Nike, Adidas and Saucony. The well-organized selection also includes sturdy work boots from Red Wing, Doc Martens and Rockport and funky foot-shaped Vibram FiveFingers slip-ons, designed to protect soles during outdoor sports. Even nonathletic types can score here: West stocks more fashion-forward street shoe brands like Generic Surplus, Clae and Tretorn, alongside men’s graphic tees, G-Shock watches, Nooka belts and Super sunglasses. The graffiti-inspired sneaker art adorning the walls is worth the trip alone.
