As far as shoe stores go, Training Camp has a pretty impressive resume. Not only was it recommended by New York Magazine as the best store in New York for sneaker shopping, it's also Ghostface Killa's favorite place to pick up new trainers. Now that's cred.
Known throughout the hip-hop world for its impressive selection of Air Jordans, Bo Jacksons, and other classic sneaks, Training Camp also has a large inventory of specialty brands for shoppers of any taste or style. Owner Udi Avshalom has been selling shoes since he was 12, so he knows a thing or two about a good fit. This month he's opened up a new Training Camp in Miami, stocked with the usual sneakers, as well as other shoes and streetwear. You might not be able to make it to the new store, but stop by one of the New York locations to pick up some "hot new joints," as Ghostface calls them. What's summer without a fresh new pair of kicks?
