Sneaker shop month continues this July on My 5, showcasing store managers and owners from the best boutiques in the business. Today, we highlight our own Greg Grovey, store manager of the Nice Kicks Shop in Austin, TX.

Since coming on to Nice Kicks as intern in 2008, the Huston-Tillotson graduate has worn many hats, contributing as a writer for various columns on, offering marketing insight for the website and now greeting customers with his trademark smile as store manager of the Nice Kicks Shop. He’s also worn many shoes. While Greg’s collection spans everything from vintage Air Maxes to OG Air Jordans, he’s currently embarking on his 100 Days of Air Force 1s journey (check it out on Instagram). In celebration of sneaker shop month and Greg’s wedding this weekend, Greg delivers one of the realest My 5s yet, showcasing his shoe selection over the recent five day span.

Greg Grovey II: “A lot of people like the ‘Cocoa Snakes’ from ’01, but I like these a little better because they have more black in them which makes the snakeskin stand out more. I’m a big eBay shopper when it comes to older Forces, you can really catch some steals. This is actually the first time I’ve worn them.”
