Between two unsuspecting shops on Colorado Blvd. lies Neo39, a hip, funky shoe and accessory store bursting with label personality. We’re talking Nike, Adidas, Puma, Jordan, Converse. Plus a more niche collection such as CLAE, miista, Rastaclat, Stance, just to name a few. That’s right, this eclectic shop offers it all, from cool sneaks and comfy boots to artsy socks and trendy track suits. And it offers it for everyone — men, women, youth, kids. Bring the entire family and walk out with a wardrobe of shoes.
For the gals:
I’m loving their collection of colorful kicks, especially since this spring’s shoe trend includes a sporty twist. Like these Nike Little Runner in raspberry red–these kicks are perfect for this season’s trend: casual yet chic (and entirely comfortable!). And at just $70, they won’t break the bank. Or a pair of these Champion Dot Keds (only $45), a throw back to my childhood but with a modern design of black and white polka dots? Yes, please!
Plus, Neo39 carries a large collection of Uggs–short and tall, sequined and multicolored, they’ve got ‘em all. Your feet will never feel so cozy.
For the guys:
From throw back checkered ($65) to preppy boat shoe ($56-$65), the collection of Vans is endless. Graphic patterns, vintage leather-styles, old school slip ons, bold colors. You name it, they’ve got it.
Dr. Martens are back in a big way and Neo39 has a stellar collection for reasonable prices. For $65, the Dr. Martens Walker has the quality of Dr. Martens with the sleekness of a Vans sneaker. Or for $130, the Dr. Martens 1460 screams classic Dr. Martens and comes in a distressed brown or black.
For the kids:
My favorites? Vans in every color and pattern imaginable. Like multicolored glitter Vans or Hello Kitty Vans for the girls and for the boys–Vans with a monstrous wolf painted on its front–yikes! For only $35 too, you can afford to splurge.
