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 True, located in San Francisco. Store manager Rommel Bundukin gave us a look at 10 of the hottest sneakers currently sitting on their shelves. Hit the jump to see his picks, as well as what he has to say about each one.

Jordan Winterized 6 Ringspt2

Jordan Winterized 6 Rings, $160
"I like the Winterized Spiz'ikes from last year a little more, but these are cool. I always thought if I drove a Muni bus or worked for UPS, this is what I would wear right here!"

Nike 1-2 Cent2

Nike 1/2 Cent, $190
"I dunno. To me, the shoe screams 'young buck.' Love the Pennys, Penny IIs & Foams. Although the shoe incorporates those three and the III & IV, they are not my cup of tea. How many kids remember Anfernee in his prime? Kids reading this are like, "What's an Anfernee?"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Clae Mcqueen2

Clae Mcqueen, $90
"I really like Clae's design and direction. It's just a good-looking shoe anyone can appreciate. This is for my grown-up shoehead."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gravis Slymz

Gravis Slymz, $50
"This is the Jordan XI (any color) for my hipster clientele. Low-profile, low-key, low price. What's not to like?!?'"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nike AF1 Low2

Nike Air Force 1 Low, $88
"I'm feeling these. I was always a sucker for a gum sole. It's nice to see Nike making simple colorways in the AF1. It's the kind of color, when you're rockin' 'em, cats look at your feet, keep walkin', then tap you on the shoulder, and ask, "Yo those Air Forces? Where'd you get them?"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hundreds Johnson low2

Hundreds Johnson Low, $64
"These are the kicks I wear running out the house during halftime of the Niner game to grab a sandwich. Classic design. The hype kids give me head nods cause they're the Hundreds."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nike AM902

Nike Air Max 90 Laser Blue, $95
"What can I say that hasn't been said about this shoe? Straight classic. Just like the Infrareds, except laser blue. Gotta have at least one 90 in the closet."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pro-Keds Royal Plus Hi2

Pro-Keds Royal Plus Hi, $80
"My O.G. dudes wear these. Pro-Keds have made a big comeback and they've been on point with colors, materials, and styles. The same dudes wearin' K-Swiss classics, all-white AF1s, and adidas Stan Smiths have gone back to Pro-Keds."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nike Woodside2

Nike Woodside, $110
"When I ordered these, it took me back to senior year. (Dating myself.) These are like those L.L. Bean duck joints. I instantly wanted to rock them with fatigues and a down jacket. The Infamous, Enter the 36, and Illmatic banging in the background."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Zig Zag Winos2

Zig Zag Winos, $24
"This shoe is a trip! What was once a shoe sold in liquor stores and worn by dudes named Lil Puppet has graced the runaway and been sold by boutiques. Winos or Crocosacks (affectionately called by some) have gone from ashy to classy—still at the ashy price, depending on where you go. The Ultimate Haight St. shoe!"
