This offshoot of neighboring sportswear store BNYC is defined by its floor-to-ceiling sneaker collection, an eye-catching range of skateboard and basketball kicks favoring time-tested classics like Reebok Pumps and Nike Air Jordans. Sport Tech is also one of the few stores in the city to carry limited-edition shoes like Puma’s line of Yo! MTV Raps sneaks (inspired by hip-hop greats like Doug E. Fresh, MC Shan, and Big Daddy Kane) and the Nike SB skateboarding sneaks—all of which are lovingly displayed in a glass case by the register. The rest of the store is crammed with street-savvy duds that vary from standards like North Face jackets and Lacoste polos to more exclusive items like Ferrari track jackets, Coogi jeans, and graffiti-art T-shirts. Between the shoes, the clothes, and an offbeat collection of Yankees caps with camouflage and graffiti patterns, Sport Tech has you covered from head to toe. Customers trying on sneakers should keep an eye out for Zeus, the store’s super-outgoing, blindingly white Bull Terrier, who has a knack for getting underfoot.
