Walter's

Staff Pick

There's no better place than downtown Atlanta landmark WALTER'S for browsing Air Jordans, Air Force Ones, Adidas shell-toes and Chuck Taylors — all while brushing shoulders with rappers, ballers and wannabes. It's a shop filled with drama and intrigue, too. The old-school shoe store is so essential a destination in Atlanta's urban culture that it has birthed more than one hip-hop beef. It's where Gucci Mane recalled meeting Young Jeezy in 2004, shortly before the two once-harmonious rappers fell out. Six years later, in March of this year, Gucci protégé Waka Flocka Flame and his posse were shopping at Walter's when they crossed paths with members of Jeezy's camp. Punches — and bullets — flew. But don't let that deter you. Walter's is seriously one of the hottest shoe stores, and hangouts, in town. 66 Decatur St. 404-688-8859. www.waltersclothing.com.
