Are you ready ? KissMyShoe makes you discover where to buy your next sneakers…
Sneakers have evolved around the world. And if the sneakerheads do not immediately think of Los Angeles as having a rich culture of sneakers, the City of Angels rivals quickly with sneaker hubs like New York and DC.
725 S Los Angeles St, Los Angeles, CA 90014– Blends is not just a sneaker shop, Blends has grown as a brand over the last ten years to become a sports shoe authority. They even collaborated with big names like Vans, with the release of their ‘Peacoat’ Blends x Vans Sk8-Hi Viss Reissue Zip LX. Unlike some stores that specialize in a particular sneaker brand, you can find limited editions of Nike SB at Chucks at Couture Adidas by Jeremy Scott.
7753 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046 – Established in ’85, the classic sneaker shop carries any and every brand you could possibly want (and some you probably forgot existed). From the jump the graffiti-style art on the wall sets the store apart, and when you walk in and see the waves of kicks, you know you’re taken care of. This is how sneaker stores used to be and still should be.
