Pumps & Pleats: Cool kicks at Central Sports

It’s time to break free from the sneaker pack!

Every gal and guy at your local gym probably wears the same old boring silver or black Nikes, right? Yep, right. Why not find a crazy cool pair of kicks that represents your own unique style? Yes!

Central Sports on Kings Highway has more than 900 sneakers on display. That’s right, 900! And we’re not talking basic high-top Reeboks here. The shop carries the hottest colors and the latest styles in so many brands and models it’ll make your head spin. Did I say they have 900 pairs of shoes? Hell-o!

A special section for men in the back of the store offers wall after wall after wall lined with fresh styles. The newest Jordans may occupy a series of shelves but the real fun is over by the Nike wall. The bravest gentleman can choose casual low-tops in a variety of rainbow (and sometimes iridescent) shades. If you’re really courageous, grab a pair of yellow and black suede high-tops coated with a collage of kissable lips.

Not to be outdone, the ladies section has its own crazy-sexy-cool fashions.

A slew of classic Pumas and the latest sweater-clad UGG boots pale in comparison to the oodles of colorful kicks in Central Sports.

There’s a strong showing of Nike Dunks in several color-block shades. Choose from lime green and burgundy or plum and white or even neon yellow and orange. You’ll definitely get attention!

Any girly girl would love the navy Nikes with a delicate white daisy flower print. Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

Two pairs of shoes are truly cutting edge. One is a pair of calf-high Nike Shox in black with red laces. The other is the Nike Air Rift, which is a split-toe sneaker that runners swear is comfortable. Maybe so, but it makes your foot look like a hoof. I’m all about standout sneaks but those are just freaky.

Central Sports is located at 1412 Kings Highway. For hours call 718-946-6006.
