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 High Point, a new streetwear boutique located in Scottsdale, AZ. Eric of High Point took the time to give us a look at the top 10 sneakers currently sitting on the store's shelves. Check out his picks, as well as what he has to say about each one.
1. Nike Air Foamposite One “Cough Drop” $200
"Not my personal favorite but a very popular shoe with our clients. Great color combo and a shoe for many occasions whether it be casual or to hoop in."
2. Air Jordan III "Cement Grey"
"One of my favorite shoes of all time. The Jordan III is timeless, and all ages old school to new school love this shoe."
3. PF Flyers "Center Hi Reiss"
"Has the look of a Chuck Taylor but much more comfortable."
4. Gourmet "Quadici" (Dove/White)
"Gourmet is one of my favorite new footwear companies and the Quadici is a great play off a duck boot."
5. Vans OTW Larkin
"You can never go wrong with a pair of Vans in your closet and the price point is perfect."
6. New Balance x Burn Rubber MT580
"By far the most comfortable sneaker in the industry (in my opinion) and the collab with Burn Rubber was on point."
7. Air Max 95
"Among top sellers for Nike in our shop. Very comfortable without compromising style."
8. Nike Toki ND
"The Toki is one of my favorite new silhouettes from Nike and they continue to drop great colorways."
