When the coolest POTUS in history gives your kicks his seal of approval, you know you're doing something right. On that note, LA sneakerheads can soon score Brooklyn-based, online-bred brand GREATS' Obama-approved footwear and more when its first brick-and-mortar boutique beyond its NYC showroom opens on Abbot Kinney this week.

Opening its doors this Friday at 11am, the sleek shop — located in Roots' former outpost — will stock the brand's luxe Italian leather and suede sneakers, slip-ons, and more footwear for women and men ($79 to $299), including its bestselling Royale and Wooster styles. The stylish space will feature Antelope Canyon-inspired displays (translation: It'll be photo-friendly) and merch exclusive to the West Coast flagship.

Stoked? See below for the store hours and address.

GREATS will be open Monday through Saturday from 11am to 7pm and Sunday from 11am to 6pm.
