Boston becoming well-heeled Sole City

Mayor Menino announced today that Converse, a Nike subsidiary, will move its world headquarters - and 400 employees - to Lovejoy Wharf when a $230-million redevelopment opens in April, 2015.

Coupled with New Balance's planned massive remaking of its corner of Brighton, Boston will have some serious ked in the sneaker world.

      By on

      I think you should hoof it up to Boston, fast as you can. I know, I know, the New York-Boston rivalry means you'll be starting off on the wrong foot, but don't let that stop you! Just kick off all that varsity baggage and you'll be more than ready to step into a new life here in our fair city.
