Good style starts with shoes.
For an assortment of funky sneakers that range from snazzy, colorful Nikes and Supras to retro classics like Vans and PF Flyers, and even a few hard-to-get brands unavailable elsewhere in town. And it's not just shoes. High Point also carries T-shirts, hats, watches, and other accessories.
