The sneaker game today has allowed for the emergence of nationwide chain retailers as primary spots for sneaker pick-ups. With that said, it is an undeniable truth that the sub-culture had been cultivated by mom-and-pops, local neighborhood spots, and diamonds in the rough that are tucked away in the rarely-explored corners of town. Inside The Sneaker Box and stumbled upon one particular gem – with a name and location they understandably refuse to disclose – and what they found inside was a seemingly untapped oil well so sweet that it’s almost felonious. During ITSB’s trip to what they call “Sneaker Heaven”, they exhibited a display of original Air Jordans and Air Maxes, Converse React Juice and other jaw-dropping kicks, with a stock-room full of old-school gems from L.A. Gear and Reebok as well as a surplus of stock of GR Nikes that people would pay top dollar for today. Check out Inside The Sneaker Box’s heavenly experience after the jump and let us know if you’ve got some hidden gems in your area!
