Calling all Sneakerheads


Honestly, I've been out of the sneaker loop for quite a bit, but during the height of my knowledge and association with sneaker freaks, I learned where potentially good sneaker stops were in town. (The last pair I contemplated owning were white ponyhair lowtop Dunks, if that indicates how long it's been at all.) I would still tell people to go to Wish and Standard if asked. I hadn't even noticed that Standard's space in Buckhead (right by the Beehive Coop and Cafe Intermezzo) had been standing empty until I saw the space in Lenox Square mall under construction.

If I recall correctly, Standard carries a hot selection of sneakers - Nike SBs, Alife, Puma, Creative Recreation. And not only the brands, but fancy exclusive limited collaborations that I cannot even begin to name. In addition to the shoes, they carry a solid selection of streetwear - this is the only store in Atlanta I have seen BBC wear in person. But a new storefront in the high traffic mall? This is huge. I'm totally psyched for them. However, I will say I'm going to miss the store mascot - a floppy sleepy bulldog who would hang out in the middle of the floor.

The new space is in the Macy's wing in the space that was (in the past year) a See's Candies and a knockoff handbag store, right near Anthroppologie. I chanced upon it on an epic trip to find a holiday dress. I found it and it's perfect and you might see me wear it to three different occasions this December.
