Earlier this year, Addiction Boutique closed at 1713 S. 12th St. and was replaced by a short-lived consignment shop called Jillayne’s Boutique. Hopefully the next place coming in here has better luck.
In recent years, collecting sneakers has become a bit of a trend. The purpose of this new shop is to bring a variety of hard-to-find sneakers to one location.
This store will have an exhibit area for a special collection of sneakers each month, meet and greets with influential people in sneaker culture and possibly Q&As for those looking to learn more about the sneaker trend. They hope that their planned outreach to the community will separate themselves from the other sneaker shops similar to this in the city.
The owners say they’re hoping the grand opening for this new sneaker boutique will happen on Nov. 7.
