The dog-leg junction is nearly a perfect storm of traffic complications, sitting just west of a massive access ramp for the Dan Ryan and a CTA Red Line station with high foot traffic.

New Sneaker Shop Coming to Corner of State and Archer

At the corner of State and Archer (1843 S State)a brand new boutique sneaker store is opening soon. Spoke to someone setting the store up today. Looks like it could be opening up soon. Most of the store looked ready to go just have to wait for them to stock the shelves.

Succezz - at 1329 S. Michigan - has been a staple in the Sloop for just under 10 years so maybe another sneaker store will thrive.  Curious to see how they do and welcome to the neighborhood.
