Zacky's (formerly V.I.M.) is one of the largest shops dotting sneaker-laden lower Broadway. On the upper floor of the bi-level store, men can find discount Levi’s pants and shirts, Calvin Klein Jeans, and Fruit of the Loom socks and underwear. But it’s the bargain-priced standout shoes that really draw them in. Sneakers from all of the major brands—Nike, Reebok, Adidas, New Balance, Converse, you name it—line the walls and numerous shelves. Downstairs, the ladies get a much smaller clothing selection mainly containing tank tops, T-shirts, and jeans, but an equally substantial choice of sneakers, plus flip-flops, girlie rain boots, and a few high heels. There are even tiny, trendy sneakers for children. More subtle shades of black and white are available, and specialty sneakers in bright colors and current designs keep customers coming back to outfit their feet at a fraction of what it would cost in a trendy boutique.
