Since its inception in June of 2006, Sole Classics has quietly become one of the Midwest’s premier sneaker and streetwear boutiques. We are located in Columbus Ohio’s Short North District, between the Ohio State University and the city’s downtown.
This Columbus, Ohio, shop stakes its claim as having #thebestdamnvansintheland. The variety doesn’t end there, since Sole Classics stocks up on everything from Asics and Reebok to Nike and New Balance. Like many other shops across the country, people vandalized Sole Classics when protests erupted over the killing of George Floyd. Owner Dionte Johnson didn’t complain. Instead, he used the incident as a teachable moment. He suggested others look past the damage to examine the reasons why people—teenagers in this case—felt the need to riot and loot in the first place. “The reason why I want to see more Black businesses survive and flourish and be successful is because we need more examples [of success] in our community beyond entertainment,” he told Columbus CEO. “That’s not a talent that you could pass on to your kids and guarantee success, [like a business could].”
Since our inception in June of 2006, Sole Classics has become one of the nation’s premier sneaker, apparel and lifestyle boutiques. We pride ourselves in being a full-service sneaker boutique, offering a wide range of services to fit all of your footwear needs.
