Cuz you know I got Sole!

The sneaker game has never been bigger. It’s all about having what your boys don’t have. The ultimate compliment is when someone looks down at your feet and asks, “Where’d you get those?” All over the globe are hundreds of hidden spots where you can cop vintage kicks and exclusive colorways of your favorite Air Force 1’s, adidas Superstars, Bapes and original Air Jordans, but there are some shops that clearly stand out from the rest.
The Dime crew spent the last few months researching these spots. We did our homework, talked to the right people and set up forums on where our readers could tell us all about their favorite spots. We decided to go straight boutique and specialty stores with this, so you won’t see Foot Locker, Footaction, Niketown and the adidas stores on this list. If you’re reading this magazine, you’ve already spent thousands of dollars (or if you’re like us, tens of thousands) at those stores and you’ll continue to hit them up on a weekly basis. And besides, with more than 1,300 Foot Lockers in the U.S. and Canada, we couldn’t possibly visit all of them.
Many factors went into our rankings – selection, history, atmosphere and reputation in the sneaker community. Countless hours and many, many pairs of crispy new kicks later, we bring you our list of the 25 best boutique sneaker stores. Peep the list HERE
