A Post For The Sneakerheads


Have to share this one.  Thrilled to know Boston is representing with not one but two stores on HIGHSNOBIETY’s list of the best sneaker stores around the world that you can access from your favorite device.  Concepts which opened up in 1996 in Cambridge and Bodega who opened their hidden Boston gem in 2006.  I am lucky enough to visit both of these stores in person but the others I can only admire from their websites and social media channels.

To all you sneaker lovers out there, I think you will appreciate HIGHSNOBIETY’s leg work as much as I do.  isostilo recently explored Kith (on this list).  This is definitely where all the cool kids are shopping in NYC.  It is no longer just for the jet setters to hit the hippest places for kicks.  Check out the list!

Put Your Stamp On It!

isostilo has a new local find in Cambridge.  I am a fan of making something your own.  The idea of designing and getting creative with textiles allows you to put your own spin on something.  I love customizing t-shirts for my son’s birthdays.  It has become a fun tradition.  I scored this year with finding  BOSSTOWN Custom Printing & Embroidery in Cambridge.  Honestly I had gone to the Converse store originally but the equipment was under repair.  So I was on the hunt to find a local business.  Having a local shop that is owner occupied is always welcomed.  We have to support our local shops to keep things interesting and unique.  After a brief meet and chat with Melissa, the owner of BOSSTOWN, I knew a super fun t-shirt would be designed.  I am thrilled to have found Melissa.  She is running a business, juggling kids, and delivering a service that I hope all will consider the next time you are looking to personalize some kicks or t-shirts.  I will say that she is located in an unassuming location and you walk through a little maze to find her small space.  Another gem!  BOSSTOWN



New year, new adventures ,more memories, and always smiling! Happy 11!
