3. "Jew Man's"
Location: Bronx, NY
Years of Operation: 1970s-1990s
We see the Nike Air Force 1 today and look at it as one of the most easy-to-cop sneakers that has ever existed. But, in the mid to late '80s, the AF1 was all but extinct and "Jew Man's" in the Bronx was regarded to be the only store in NYC that carried them up until 1988. Supply and demand makes Jew Man's hands down one of the best sneaker stores that ever existed — ask any old head from NYC.
