Sneakerheads are well repped in this city. If you've never heard one fetishize the goods at local shops like HUF, Fatlace, or the Darkside Initiative, you'd think they were a religious cult mainlining Kool-Aid. SoleSearch, a new smartphone app from Pangea Subsidiaries, might turn you into one too.

When you get an itch for new kicks, SoleSearch will help you find the best independent shoe shops to score them, whether you're just wandering around San Francisco or visiting the streets of NYC. It'll even help you in foreign countries! The app, available for iPhones and Androids alike, will lead you the freshest stuff, and then connect with Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare to tell all your friends about it. Then it's up to you to decide whether or not you'll actually take them out of the box.
