SummaryThe Ave opened on April 7th, 2010 by Los Angeles native Nick Romero, who brought on some of the sharpest, brightest, and best looking people he could find. Together, they've created what Yo! Venice has called 'Their Favorite New Store' and reviewed on the front page of Thrillist.com.
The Ave, which is located steps away from the sand right in the heart of Venice Beach, has over 100 styles available to choose from in a tattoo-parlor-esque book and can have your sweet pair of kicks hot off the press in 20 minutes. Although you will find some hot designs on the website, you'll definitely want to pop by the store to see what's fresh off the press.
