Half of the sneaker game is knowing what kicks are out when, and which shops have them. Our Shelf Space column looks at what shops around the country are stocking in a given week, and gives a quick glimpse into the mind of the buyer/manager/owner who put them there.

As we continue our mission of bringing you the insides of the best sneaker spots from around the U.S., we stop in at Training Camp, located in NYC. Michael Vincent, the man behind the product at the TC franchise, took the time to give us a look at the top 10 sneakers currently sitting on the store's shelves. Hit the jump to see his picks, as well as what he has to say about each one.
