Even sissy boys like me get a little thrill at Paragon; it might be all sporting goods, but it is a store, after all, and one of the city's best. The refreshingly un-condescending staff is only too happy to help you pick out whatever gear it is you need to finally keep your New Year's resolution. And many of the boots here offer sporty traction (like the North Face Greenland Zip for women) that will reliably keep you moving through slush and snow.
