This Groupon is valid at Sportie LA's three locations in Los Angeles and one location in Sherman Oaks.

The foot-sheath hotspot features a plethora of well-known brands such as Adidas, Nike, Converse, Ugg, Puma, and Vans that delight toes without the dangers of kicking down Poseidon's sand castles. In-store appearances and press showcase a celebrity following of such stars as Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, David Beckham, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West.
