Quote:[hr][/hr]The Retro Sole is a sneaker boutique that carries exclusive lines and classics. Our Grand Opening will be December 9th! Sneaker prices vary from $49.99 to $250.00 Just to give you an idea of what we carry I will give some examples: PF Flyers, Reebok, KSwiss Statement (Logan Hicks) only 600 pairs will be released internationally and we will have 8 pairs of 2 different styles, New Balance: we have a T2I account and are the only store in Sacramento that carries exclusively NB classics, JB Classics, Creative Recreation, L.A.M.B (in a few weeks), Ball Band first created in 1898 and the license was recently purchased, will only be in 20 stores and ours is one. Coming in next week we have: Zoo York, Puma, Greedy Genius, and Lacoste. We are beginning the Nike process as well, and hopefully will be done soon! The shoe sizes vary depending upon what style.

As far as clothing are concerned we currently have in UNDRCRWN and Foreign Family. We are expecting Triumvir and a few others in the near future![hr][/hr]


Visited the shop for the first time today. I met the owner/manager, Terrence, and two other employees named Preston and Kendra. As of now, they only have some K-Swiss, Reeboks, JB Classics, etc. However, they have some Undr-Krwn clothing including the all-over elephant print tee and those tees with the names, "Michael, Scottie, Ron..." I forget what the name of the shirt is but they carry the Michigan and Boston ones as well. All 33$ if I remember correctly. They have the 'Just for Kicks' DVD and the new SOLE Collector magazines at their store. I was talking with Terrence, and he is expecting to have a Jordan Brand account (L'style as well) hopefully by January of next year. He's also working on a Nike account, but I forget if he specified which type of account he would be receiving. He said he's also working on attaining some Greedy Genius footwear and apparel as well as Triumv3r, and MIKE clothing. The manager is aiming towards a diversity of sneakers which is dope IMO. Store is nice, clean, and has that old school feel to it. Terrence and the employees are real cool and mad friendly. Go visit! It's definitely a small but up and coming shop.


Directions: Take Highway 50 and exit Bradshaw. Make an
immediate right on Micron Ave, turn left into the complex. They are in suite 134.

Go check them out sometime!

On a whole different subject, I'm looking for Viotech's in a size 9.5-10.5.

Sounds cool...I would've taken off 'The' from the store name but the set-up looks great and those chairs look DAMN comfy.

The location seems kinda deep though, Downtown woulda been better.

checked it out a few days ago. location is real weird but I guess for this type of store it doesnt really matter. Got some foreign family in there too. Once they get some nike's in there should be a cool spot. Not sure where they are going to display all their clothes. They expected nike account to get going between january and march

Be on the lookout for a new shipment of Undr-Krwn clothing. Some of the stuff they're putting out is pretty nice. Oh yeah, and a selection of New Balance footwear is now available in the store. New MIKE clothing should be arriving soon, and Puma footwear will be in as well. My dude, Terrence, is still working on that Nike/JB accounts. He's staying patient, continuing to wait for their reply. When he receives them though, I'll be sure to let you guys know.

Check out their brand new website: www.theretrosole.com

To the OWNERS OF RETROL SOLE:


hit me up about buisness. I couldn't agree more about the person commenting that the location of your stuff isn't that great of an attraction. BELIEVE ME, as an architect(instudy), the place to be is in downtown. Not laguna, not roseville, not arden, nowhere. JUST DOWNTOWN. You heard of the k-street rennovation right? well once that project gets started, things will look nicer and more of a SF feel to it. Residential upstairs and Commercial downstairs. More high end boutiques and think of that whole k-street as a more livelier place, like las vegas or the river walk in san antonia, or portland.

If you are thinking about it, let me know and I for sure help you do design the new fit for the store. If not and you like where you are, that's cool. GOOD BUSINESS TO YOU ALL!!!!!
