Let’s Get Phys­i­cal

Where Philadelphia - - News -

From high-end sneaks to cy­cling gear, where to shop for ath­letic pur­suits.

Do your feet a fa­vor this sum­mer and trade your stilet­tos for a pair of sneak­ers. With the merg­ing of streetwear and high fash­ion, kicks are now com­fort­able enough to tra­verse the city, yet chic enough to wear any­where with­out com­pro­mis­ing on style. At in­de­pen­dent bou­tique Lap­stone

& Ham­mer ( 1106 Ch­est­nut St., 215.592.9166, www.

lap­stone­and­ham­mer.com), find just the thing in finely crafted footwear, like the Fill­ing Pieces line, de­signed by a Dutch ar­chi­tect and hand­made in Por­tu­gal with Ital­ian leather. Each pair blends ath­letic and stylish el­e­ments in strik­ing ways, such as a salmon scale, wo­ven leather shoe top­ping a Mar­gom vul­can­ized rub­ber Kobe rip­ple sole. Lap­stone & Ham­mer is also known for reis­sues of retro styles in new col­or­ways; lo­cals camp out for weekly drops of Jor­dans or Nikes that sell out in­stantly.
