1. Finish Line
US-based Finish Line gives enthusiasts a platform to express their love for sneakers by delivering the latest trends and exclusives from a variety of brands. It’s also a place to go for sneakerheads looking for great deals.
2. Bodega Store
A coveted store for sneaker enthusiasts, Bodega is a must-visit when you’re in the country, but you’ve got to be in the know to do that. To quote SneakerFreaker: “One of the world’s best sneaker shops is disguised as a convenience store!” They also have an online presence, so you won’t have to worry about not being able to visit (well, especially since we’re halfway across the world).
3. Stock X
Sneakerheads and streetwear fans would likely be familiar with StockX, a reselling platform which was founded in 2015. Essentially, StockX acts like a stock market to resells things, with a revolutionary bid and ask function for buyers and sellers, respectively. Sellers can place their asking price on their items, while buyers can place bids – often lower than the asking price – on said items. When the two criteria on the item are met, StockX will automatically match up the transaction.
