Profile

This venue is closed.

This well-stocked streetwear boutique carries a generous mix of limited-edition kicks and smaller cult brands. Opened in 2003, the store carries a typical assortment of high-end sneakers by Nike, Vans, Adidas, Puma, and Converse, in a striking array of colors, metallics, and patent leather. The stock extends beyond typical crowd-pleasers into hard-to-find lines, like canvas boots from Keep or limited-edition Vans collections by Marissa Miller and Paul Smith. The shoes fill shelves along the store’s bright red walls, beneath oversize blowups of vintage Vans ads. A comparatively large section in back caters to women, displaying smaller tees and shoes by female collaborators (including Vans slip-ons reading “I’m not your bitch” and “You’ll tell nobody nothing” by artist Niagara), and a shelf near the register holds mini toddler-sized kicks for kids. Tees and hoodies by designers like Sixpack France and Rockwell fill the low-hanging racks below the sneakers. But the largest clothing selection comes from the store’s own Reine et Roi line of tees, vibrant reversible hoodies, color-block windbreakers, and striped sweaters.
