3 Great Jones St., 212-420-9955, NoHo, Manhattan
With a steady stream of restaurants, bookstores and boutiques opening over the last decade, Great Jones and Bond Streets have slowly become a micro-neighborhood within the already narrow confines of NoHo. One of the oldest boutiques on either street is Memes. While not just a sneaker store, Memes carries a selection of collaborations and handpicked items that dovetail with the vibe of the shop's overall apparel and accessories lines. This means coveted Stüssy collaborations, as well as Jeremy Scott x Adidas entries. Gourmet and Y-3 round out the mix, offering more fashion-forward styles.
