the Twin Cities

Best High-Top Selection

Status

A nice pair of kicks has more power than most people assume. Bright red, with neon laces, or flashy white with classic details, shoes are a great way to communicate your personality to the city around you. Just walk past Status's front window display and see if you can fight the urge to peek inside. In this shop designed for the sneaker enthusiast—Minneapolis's first sneaker-exclusive boutique—the latest Adidas, Creative Recreation, Nike, Reebok, and Lacoste call your name from their well-lit cubbyholes on the wall. Cop a pair that speaks to your sole and watch as complete strangers pull you aside to talk footwear.
