Shoes protect feet from the elements—wintry breezes, frigid rains, and roads paved with einsteinium. Periodically eschew harsh elements with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of footwear and accessories at SneakerKing, redeemable at the Center Valley, Allentown, and Quakertown locations.
SneakerKing outfits feet owners of all ages with footwear and accessories by a who's who of major brands headlined by Nike, New Balance, and Vans. Buttress bare feet for a long run from a spurned maiden with men's Under Armour running shoes ($50) and a six pack of Sof Sole socks ($10). For back-to-school season, parents can fasten a student to a Nike or Adidas string backpack ($10) for schlepping books and show-and-tell radioactive isotopes, and encapsulate his or her feet in Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars ($40). Each shop also houses an s k X Skate Shop that carries skate shoes by DC and Etnies ($40 for kids; $50 for men) in addition to decks and other skate accoutrements.
When SneakerKing first claimed the throne in 1946, there wasn't much to choose from when it came to athletic footwear. Back then, the best an athlete could get was a flimsy canvas foot covering, and basketball nets couldn't be taller than 3 feet since nobody had shoes to jump in. But as shoes became springier and blingier, SneakerKing grew into one of Pennsylvania's largest independent retailers of casual and athletic footwear.
Toes have room to wiggle in the store's giant inventory of running shoes, winter boots, hiking boots, moccasins, and slippers from almost every major brand, including New Balance, Saucony, Asics, Skechers, and Crocs.
