For the Latest Salomon Drop
Extra Butter, 125 Orchard St.; and 22-03 Jackson Ave., Long Island City; 917-722-6578; extrabutterny.com
You won’t find moisture-wicking singlets and hydration belts at Extra Butter, a sneaker shop with locations in Queens and on the Lower East Side, but you will find a great array of Salomon, New Balance, Saucony, and ASICS. “Extra Butter has a really, really good selection of functional, comfortable running sneakers that happen to be fresh,” says Benny DiMirco, a health-and-wellness professional. Extra Butter is how he finds out
about sneaker releases from running brands such as Diadora and Hoka. The Long Island City shop — where the staff of Bandit Running (see above) can often be found shopping for sneakers when they’re not at their own store — has 12 vintage theater seats with an overhead projector for film screenings plus a hidden speakeasy accessed through a door-size mirror.
