Best uncool place for cool sneakers (2008)


Hipsters, beware. This store is not designed for you. The back-to-school backpacks, football jerseys, and packs of Fruit of the Loom undies are discouraging, but not pathetic enough to invite snarking. Yet a trip to the Harlem MODELL'S may prove rewarding, as the downstairs features an array of chic sneakers (retro Reeboks, Nikes, Adidas) at starving-trendster prices.
