In Soho you can also find DC, Vans and Supreme.
North of Houston Street — on the corner of Broadway and Bleeker St. — lies Kith, another cool store selling sneakers as well as their own collection, Kith Academy. They even sell some Danish design as they feature Stelton’s Cylinda line.
When you continue north on Broadway near Union Square you get to Flight Club, probably the best-known sneaker store, their walls covered with sneakers shrink-wrapped in plastic.
Alife Rivington Club is on the Lower East Side. It’s a boutique, featuring a line of exclusive sneakers and streetwear, with a "gentleman's club" ambiance. In the early days, you needed to be a member of their club to buy sneakers from the store. Back then, it wasn't easy to find either, as it didn’t have any signs outside the store. Today the store has signs, but you still need to ring the bell to get in. Selling premium Club 75 Stan Smiths, and other variations in ostrich leather and snakeskin, this “shoe lounge” is definitely for the serious sneaker aficionado!
If you are in the Lower East Side neighborhood, there is one more store, Extra Butter to check out on Orchard St.
