'Sneaker boutique' operators Atmos have been opening an array of new branches in 2015, with Ginza, Ikebukuro and Kichijoji all getting some love. They now take a step into uncharted territory with this location, which combines rare sneakers with quality coffee. Teaming up with latte art champion Hiroshi Sawada's Streamer Coffee Company, Atmos have set up a 'sneaker gallery' in a Harajuku basement, decorating the space with a wall of shoes and selling mainly rare models and limited-edition items, plus the ultra-collectible Be@rbricks. As for the coffee, you can look forward to a full menu of Joe, in addition to vanilla and chai latte smoothies, both available only here. The store's been crowded ever since opening day back in June, proving that in creative, daring Harajuku, even the most unorthdox of retail concepts can be successful.
