Where the best sneaker brands, like Adidas, Nike and PF Flyers, overtake sandy beach feet.. In Short A large red and black Michael Jordan mural leads passers-by into this downtown Manhattan Beach store where smooth wood walls emphasize the neat rows of sneakers, high tops and sandals inside. A few benches, where shoppers can slip cool kicks on their feet, fill the space while sneaks grab all the attention with their colored trimming, bright laces and well-known labels. Brands like Nike, DC Shoes, PF Flyers, Asics and the South Bay favorite Vans bring the old school and the new school, the vintage and the fresh alike. From subtle browns and blacks on classic designs to neon blues and reds on trendy new models, sneaker heads should not overlook this tucked-away spot.
