I am back and better then ever! I took a brief hiatus from my fashion work with Thread due to our newly timed spring break vacation. I don’t know about all of you thread heads but the first think I want to get when spring rolls around is a fresh new pair of kicks. Fashion starts from your feet and if you make sure all ten of your toes are fully equipped with dapper shoes then you’re off to a great start. This week’s installment will be focused on a shoe spot off High Street of which I have briefly mentioned in the past but not given its proper attention.
SOLE CLASSICS is a small shoe boutique located directly next to my previously mentioned dapper dandy Milk Bar. Sole Classics doesn’t carry your average running shoe or air max’s but instead focuses on a product that will set you apart from all the other sneaker heads. Vintage and rare shoes are hard to come by in Ohio but Sole Classics holds it down. Their product variation ranges from the coveted Nike Roshe running shoe, (worn by team USA bball) all mesh air max’s and Scottie Pippen’s basketball shoe from the 90’s. If you want your feet to make a statement make sure you get your kicks from Sole Classics.
Although the shoes are the main attraction Classics also carries various other items to help compliment your wardrobe. With a unique blend of high-end street wear brands such as; Billionaire Boys Club, Stussy, and The Hundreds, Sole Classics is able to dress your properly from head to toe. Glasses and watches can also be found in the shop, Ray Bans, Supers, G-Shock and Fossil are amongst the items carried in that regard.
The owner of the shop supports local clothing brands and local talent heavily, which is awesome. Every couple months the Sole Classics shop will be used for MC spin sessions and rap listening parties. They will also hold clothing release parties for local clothing companies such as “Kings Rowe” and “Smirk Clothing”.
Sole Classics is huge part of the Columbus fashion image so make sure you check it out before this spring.
