2016 Winner: Bodega

This speakeasy-style sneaker shop has become a counterculture hub for the streetwear set since
it first opened its doors (err, Snapple machine) 10 years ago. The past decade has seen a pop-up shop in Tokyo as well as awards, endorsement deals and even an art gallery. These days, along with newly released Nikes, Jordans and celebrity collections, founders Oliver Mak, Jay Gordon and Dan Natola also carry Bodega’s own creations and designer collaborations. Talk about a sneak attack.


6 Clearway St., Boston.
