Kith NYC | Cherry S. via Yelp
Kith NYC (Prospect Heights)
Street-smart brands are what you’ll find in Kith NYC’s footwear, just a few blocks from Barclays Center. Think athletic shoes with a hip-hop vibe. You’ll find all the usual suspects of Adidas, Puma, Nike, and Y-3, but if you’re looking to show some serious sneaker cred, splash out for something by Android Homme, Versace Collection, or Buscemi. These are not sneakers for running around in the park, these are sneakers for keeping clean and admiring.
Clarks | Soula Shoes via Facebook
Soula Shoes (Williamsburg)
If you’re after a sophisticated selection, step into Soula’s sleek, minimalist location on Smith Street, or check out their new shop in Williamsburg. Ladies will want to snap up a pair of Chie Mihara’s distinctive heels or solid Swedish Hasbeens. Men can slip into some Onitsuka Tigers. And how about a pair of wee Campers for the kids?

Rime (Boerum Hill)
For sportswear with a serious edge, look no further than Rime. You just might walk out with some bewinged Jeremy Scott Adidas or some Puma x McQueen high-tops with cut-outs. They also carry boots, but trust us, this is sneaker heaven.
