Saks Fifth Avenue has finally realized that high fahion's obsession with streetwear isn't going anywhere anytime soon. The department store has opened an in-store boutique on the seventh floor of its NYC flagship devoted exclusively to designer sneakers.

The concept section will include exclusive designs from Giuseppe Zanotti, Bally and Pierre Hardy along with ready-to-wear options from Dior, Givenchy, Versace, and both adidas collaborations from Raf Simons and Y-3.

And don't worry if you live outside of New York City, Saks is planning on placing these shop-in-shop stores in 16 other locations, including Houston, Boston, and Chicago.
