    What's up y'all,
    I'm here in Boston for the next few days, and wanted to know where's the best place to cop sneakers? I visited downtown crossing yesterday (didn'tfind any good deals though), and tomorrow I'll probably hit up the galleria in Cambridge. I'm staying in a place called Somerville and only haveaccess to public transportation. If anyone could offer any advice, it would be much appreciated. 1

    PS. Where is Bodega located, and how are the prices there?

    How are the prices there though? I'm not big on dropping big money for exclusives.

    The prices at Bodega aren't too bad. All sneakers in Boston are really around the same price.

    There is a Niketown & Puma Store on Newbury St.

    Laced, which is located on Columbus Ave off Mass Ave (passed Bdga if you take a left off Clearway)

    Concepts/Tannery in Harvard Square

    Few shops in Allston - Lab, AWOL, Re-Up
    ..all I can remember now

    [​IMG] sounds like you just heard about it from someone

    1) when you approach the machine there's a tile on the floor and it opens
    2) it slides and there's the store....no basement or stairs involved-

    my new favorite sneaker store in boston is x-squared. its across from niketown on newbury st.....concepts in harvard square is a must. bodega gets goodreleases, but for the most part selection is poor and nothings ever on sale unless its one of their sale events. downtowns got a few spots includingexpressions.

    Yesterday I hit up the sneaker spots on Newbury but wasn't too impressed. Selection was not too good but the prices weren't outrageous. I did grab abunch of Polo sweaters from Lord & Taylors (I have never even heard of the store prior) for cheap. Today I'll be heading out to Bodega and the spotsaround Harvard sq. I'll let y'all know when I'm back.

    The crew neck sweaters were on clearance for $32. I got an extra 15% off by signing up for their credit card.

    Good looking out NT. I hit up every spot that was recommended except for those in Allston. Also, Laced happened to be closed at 3 in the afternoon for somereason. Didn't cop any kicks for myself, but grabbed a pair of blue and gray air trainer III's for my homeboy jbv1 for $90 at Bodega. Again, I thankevery cat on here for the input that y'all provided.
