Sports Zone Elite (675 H St NW), a retail shop focused on selling shoes and urban sportswear, opened earlier this week in the 600 block of H St NW just a few storefronts down from the 7th and H St corner. In February, we mentioned that SZE was intending to open up a store after Yo! Sushi pulled out of their intent to lease the space.
We stopped by yesterday afternoon to check out the store and enjoyed seeing all the varieties of shoes available for sale for both adults and kids. The store’s right side is devoted to shoes and the left side to pants, tops, caps, and some of the funkiest sports socks we’ve seen in a while. Staff were friendly and helpful, and SZE uses Instagram/social media and the web extensively to announce new shoe releases. Now we know where to go to replace our beat up Chuck Taylor canvas hightops, and trust us, they need replacing!
The store is open until 9 pm every day of the week except Sunday. Welcome to the downtown neighborhood Sports Zone Elite!
