    157 Smith St., 718-797-0675, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn

    Variety is one of the most important qualities to be found in a neighborhood sneaker shop. (That might sound obvious, but many boutiques' selections are fairly narrow.) Rime's breadth makes it a one-stop shop for nearly every sneakerhead's whim—including fans of Jeremy Scott's winged Adidas, which aren't to everyone's tastes. On the more quotidian side, Rime offers a large selection of Nike and Vans, as well as essentials like white canvas Converse Jack Purcells. The store also hosts plenty of launches, good to keep in mind if you're the type who's itching for the latest Nike LeBrons the day they drop.
