482 1st St
Sneakerheads –rejoice! Sixth Ave is open for business and ready to equip you with the newest and hottest kicks. This apparel and sneaker boutique is owned and operated by three friends and sneaker aficionados -Michael Paredes, Marquis Burns, and Jarredd Helms. All three have loved sneakers from an early age and found entrepreneurial ways to score the coolest kicks without a large budget. Michael and Jarredd first met at a Sneaker Con in Atlanta in 2019 but had already been following one another on social media. They both got into the sneaker business by trading and selling shoes locally and then moved to selling on Facebook and Instagram. Marquis once traded his PlayStation 3 for a pair of Olympic 7s. Today, the friends use their sneaker knowledge, connections, and branding and marketing expertise to bring the most collectible sneakers to Middle Georgia. They opened their first storefront in downtown Macon in the spring.
Sixth Ave is one of several new businesses that have opened on First Street this year. You can now shop for vintage and limited edition apparel, purchase art or participate in a pottery class, dine, and enjoy cocktails, wine, and beer without ever leaving First Street.
Step inside and see what all the hype is about. Sixth Ave is open Monday through Thursday from 11am to 7pm and Friday and Saturday from 11am to 8pm.
