While many skate shops are beginning to feel more like trendy clothing stores that just happen to sell a couple of boards, Concrete Skate NY stays true to its roots. Every inch of the shoe-box sized store appeals to the old-school, classic skater: the entrance hall is covered in Vans’ signature black-and-white checker pattern, and a huge blown-up photo of a guy grinding a rail adorns the wall. Inside, a sticker-covered bench, flat screen television, and thumping rap music make the space a prime hangout for dudes coming to-and-from Union Square’s impromptu skate park, just around the corner. Focusing on all the things a skater really needs, Concrete carries an impressive selection of decks, trucks, and wheels by brands like SHUT, Five Boro, Girl, and Chocolate. Coveted accessories, like Supra hi-tops and suede kicks by Lakai, DVS, and Vans, are available, too, as well as hoodies and t-shirts from labels like Raw and HUF.
