Sneaker Pawn, New York, NY
This father & son business introduced Harlem NYC with a new & exciting pawnshop concept. Here you won’t be able to hock your grandfather’s antique gold pocket watch or other types of valuables & electronics, but you’ll be more than welcome to pawn your pricey, collectible sneakers! This pawn shop is exclusively devoted to sneakers and is based in an old Harlem apartment where both father & son used to live and have converted into a retail space.
Three hundred sneakers line the beautiful exposed brick walls of Sneaker Pawn, and it was necessary for the store owners to choose a shoe display system that will not cause the wall display to appear cluttered. Also since there is only one type of product sold in this store, it was important to create a minimal display where the sneakers are the focus, without any distractions.
When you walk into Sneaker Pawn, you notice that they did a great job creating a setting that showcases their products.
They created a modern shoe wall display using SlatSystem: a combination of 96” long SlatStrips and a variety of shoe displayers, which allows the beauty of the exposed brick wall to be visible. This system is easily reconfigured – additional shoe displayers can be added or some can be removed according to the changing needs of the pawnshop.
