Zumiez...I have seen trendy places, but this is definitely this decade...

" A great place to find something for men in your life, and yourself as well..."



 I did not know what to make of Zumiez--self consciously hip, if not hipsterish, place on the Eastern edge of Greenwich Village.

Locals can "dig it." Can you "dig it"? ( I understand people want to revive that phrase).

Again, worth seeing..too new, I guess, to be too many reviews

    hands down... one of my FAVORITE places to shop for my boys. boyfriends, brothers, boys that are friends. you get the point.

    it's not just "skater" stuff here! they carry everything from boards, backpacks, dope shoes (adidas, supra, nike, vans) and hats/t-shirt/clothing from names like: 10deep, Acrylick, Akomplice, Element, Crooks & Castles, Diamond, Obey, Mishka, LRG, Neff, Stuffy and of course... many more! i can't compare Zumiez to Yellow Rat Bastard of Blades. it's just more focused on "style" and "fashion", not just boards and crazy expensive snow/skate gear or JUST t-shirts.

    i like the layout and displays. however, the check-out area gets a bit "crowded" and confusing. when there's more than 3-4 people in line, it kind of snakes around a few accessories racks without much room or you're crushed by the stairs. other than this, the store is amazing and so are the staff!

    every single sales associate was warm, cool, fun to talk to and very chill. no attitude, no pretentiousness. they were all so helpful and made me feel good to shop there. Zumiez is nostalgic for me- i used to shop at the store located inside a mall in the suburbs 15 years ago (when i was a teen). they have changed it up a lot and include hip-hop/street wear now and feature more brands than the usual "skater shop" might. i love it.

    I bought a Penny Board here. Looked around a few places before deciding on it against a longboard. The staff was really helpful. I even skated there the next week to personally thank the guy who helped me pick the board.

    this is the only Zumies in Manhattan. There was one near me when I lived in New Jersey. They sell snowboard gear as well.

    The world need to know this. I went to NY 2 times. Both times I was looking for Crooks & Castles stuff, but couldn't find it anywhere (BK, Manhattan, Queens...). I even Twitted to the Crooks & Castles account and couldn't get a answer.

    Then I found Zumiez. It's the only store where I could find Crooks stuff in NYC. They had others brands like Obey and all that. I met Justin there who is funny. If you love Obey, Crooks, and A$AP Rocky, this place is for you.

    I only gave 4 stars because they also listen to Kendrick Lamar haha.
