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

This week, we figured we'd keep it local and check in with the good folks over at Goliath RF in Harlem. We hit up Goliath owner, Rosemary Frazier, who took us through the hottest sneakers currently sitting on their shelves. Hit the jump to see what the uptown spot currently has in stock as well as what Rosemary has to say about each one. If you find yourself in New York this weekend, make sure you stop by Goliath RF located at 175 East 105th Street.

"The Mighty Ducks" by Timberland x 10DEEP, $180

Goliath-Shoe-2

Nike Air Carnivore, $110
"A staple for sneaker connoisseurs with history. The Nike Air Carnivore last sat on shelves in 1993, and from the moment snap shots snuck onto blogs, these cross trainers generated a loud buzz and high demand."

Supra Skytop Black Gunny, $140
"Chad Muska's signature shoe, the Supra Skytop, is appealing to lovers of skate culture and those appreciative of forward design. The gunmetal material defends against griptape damage and your regular everyday scuffs, and allows for more wears on this great looking skate shoe."

Propulsion Hi by Android Homme, $220
"Using rocket ships as inspiration, Android Homme's Propulsion Hi embarks on one of 2009's most popular trends. The Propulsion Hi is available in three colorways: Black/Silver, Blue and the most popular, Purple."

Goliath-Shoe-5

Nike Air Max 24-7, $160
"Like something from a sneaker junkie's pipe dream, the Nike Air Max 24/7 combines components from the '95, '97, and 2009 models. The classic neon '95 colorway will force collectors to tip their hat and thank Nike for this creation."

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

Goliath-Shoe-6

Nike Air Zenyth - Womens, $95
"Offering some flare to a performance sneaker, the Air Zenyth resembles a slightly evolved Air Max 1. It is extremely comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, more than ideal for a woman."

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

Goliath-Shoe-7

Nike Blazer Mid - Womens, $80
"The number one head turner for our female clientele. A little higher than your typical Blazer, the mid plus convinces most non sneaker-wearing ladies to mix a Nike box in their closet."

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

Goliath-Shoe-8

Nike Air Max 2009, $160
"The Air Max 2009 is the most technologically advanced Air Max today. The new Flywire lightens the shoe while Nike Plus tracks your stats. Arguably one of the top performance shoes out, it leaves runners and Air Max fans pleased."

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

Goliath-Shoe-9

Propulsion Hi 2 by Android Homme, $240
"Using the same silhouette as the Propulsion, the Propulsion 2 is carefully detailed, slightly changing its appearance. Originally modeled after a rocket, the Propulsion has evolved into a jet pack. With only 200 pairs released, pig skin, full grain pebbled and pounded leather step up the quality from previous versions."

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

Goliath-Shoe-10

Nike Air Hoop Structure FA LE, $125
"The hoop structure is one of the latest Nikes to jump on the Flywire bandwagon. Flywire technology, in conjunction with AIR, creates a hybrid sneaker that is lightweight and flexible. This shoe is good for running, basketball, or just looking nice."
