Houston now has another destination for those looking to peruse the latest in kicks and more, as sneaker boutique Sole Lounge officially launched during the festivities of Memorial Day Weekend. Located just minutes away from the Galleria, Sole Lounge is looking to expand on the idea of a “One stop shop” by providing a viable shopping alternative to fighting crowded malls this Summer.

“When you go to a new city there are 3 things that you want to know: The most poppin club, boutique, and restaurant. I’m trying to create something that I haven’t seen in Houston,” shop owner Chance McGrady explained.


In an effort to ease the shopping frenzy created by sneaker hype beasts and a higher demand than supply, McGrady hopes to make quality products available to those looking to avoid the hoopla surrounding most popular releases now. “I love sneakers and want to supple people that can’t always wait in line for the most popular ones. There’s no wait here. You can grab a pair of socks, a few t-shirts, etc. and go about your day. It’s a one stop shop, that’s what I’m trying to create.”
