If you’ve ever seen a shoe store, you’ll be familiar with the “skateboarding shoe warehouse” concept.
There are tons of skateboarding shoes on the floor that you can walk up to, grab, and start playing with.
The trick is to have enough energy to actually get your feet up onto the floor.
To accomplish this, you need a shoe that you really like, a skateboard that you’ll love, and a place where you can find a pair that you think is really cool.
Luckily, there’s plenty of places around town where you’ll find skateboarding sneakers, so you don’t have to travel to the big box stores for your sneakers.
To make this easy, we’ve assembled a guide to the best skateboard shops in NYC.
From the newest arrivals to classic brands like Footlocker and Lululemon, we have you covered.
