Im looking to buy some men's sneakers for my husband. I'd love to buy locally if possible. Do you have any suggestions of places to buy from?
Concierge Service Answer:
You have a some really great options for men's sneakers. I don't know your husband's style preference, so here are a few ranges to consider:
I'd start with SoleSpace:
They have a great selection of modern styles. The owner is a huge community advocate; supporting local artists, designers, and Oakland in general.
They have a second location on Grand Avenue that is worth a look as well.
The Shoe Spot in Old Oakland has been around for long time and has a loyal following.
McCaulou's is an indie department store in Montclair Village. They have a shoe department with a good selection of shoes for everyone in the family. Their website is very limited and doesn't display all the options they have available.
These guys have all types of athletic shoes and sneakers. They are open on Sunday and just down the street from McCaulou's.
