Online shops may be convenient, but nothing beats in-person inspection. Below, two formerly online-only brands making their brick-and-mortar debut just in time for holiday shopping.
Grain Audio x AC Gears
Woody NY speaker artisans Grain Audio have partnered with Greenwich Village house of gadgetry AC Gears for the physical retail launch of their walnut-encased, Bluetooth-enabled “Packable” speaker and solid wood earbuds.
Greats Brand Field House
“Designed in LA and powered in NY,” Greats has been making beaucoup noise with their super streamlined sneaks and awesomely inspirational, occasionally babe-a-licious Instagram account. Now New Yorkers can get their hands (feet?) on Greats’ Wilson and Royale styles in the flesh at their Williamsburg emporium.
Plus, exclusive Greats collabs (like the sweatshirt they’re dropping with Trophy Athletics for the holidays) and first looks at much anticipated new styles for 2014.
