1. Pound for Pound

10867 W Pico Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90064
(310) 474-5100
Visit Website
Pound For Pound rescued westside shoppers from the harrowing commute to the city’s other sneaker consignment shops when it opened in 2014. Find superduper collectible sneakers here, like Jeremy Scott’s freakiest Adidas kicks, as well as tons of basketball styles (Jordan, Kobe, LeBron) in limited-edition colorways.

2. Flight Club LA

Copy Link
503 N Fairfax Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90036
(323) 782-8616
Visit Website
Flight Club was originally born way back in 1999 as vintagekicks.com, offering an early e-comm solution to connect buyers and sellers. Its brick and mortar business — launched in 2005 with the current-era name — operates primarily on consignment and offers way more than throwback sneakers.

Its loyal sellers bring in boutique exclusives from overseas, friends- and- family- only releases, and unworn vintage styles. You’ll find an astounding array of snap back and flat brims, too, offering a truly head to toe look.

3. Round Two

7320 Melrose Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90046
This Hollywood shop is Round Two’s second location (the first exists in the decidedly un-Hollywood city of Richmond, Virginia). Find rare sneakers and Supreme clothing as well as a stellar vintage selection including '90s rap tees, Nike windbreakers from before you were born, and team hats.

4. The Holy Grail

Copy Link
604 W Pico Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90015
(213) 746-6405
Visit Website
In the spirit of its name, Holy Grail was designed with a church-like feel. Consign at the altar of Nike Jordan and shop the apostles (or something). The sneaker store predates most of its competitors; it opened in 2007 and helped kickstart DTLA’s stylish reinvention.

It’s located right near the Staples Center, which is great if you need to stunt last-minute, but wasn’t so beneficial when a mob celebrating the 2009 Lakers NBA Finals win looted the shop.

5. RIF Los Angeles

334A E 2nd St
Los Angeles, CA 90012
(213) 617-0252
Visit Website
The minimalist store design of this shop in Little Tokyo keeps the focus on shoes, which line the black walls from floor to ceiling. By way of consignees, Rif is able to offer a mighty array of Nike hallmarks — like Air Jordans, AF1’s, and Air Max — in special editions, as well as a selection from other major brands. Try to catch Rif’s annual swap meet, where you can broker some very good deals.

6. Rif Dos

334 E 2nd St
Los Angeles, CA 90012
Right down the street from sneaker consignment shop Rif is the company’s outpost for clothing, accessories, and skate decks. (Imagine a Buffalo Exchange that deals exclusively in Supreme and Bape. Yeah.) Check out what’s just landed in store via IG (@rifdos) where each pic includes an honest assessment of condition as well as price.
