THRIFTY TIPS l Belmont Army Surplus, which stocks sneaks by Nike, Puma and other fashionable brands, devotes about two-thirds of its second-floor shoe department to clearance kicks. l Get to know the employees at hip shops such as St. Alfred, Leaders 1354 and Encore. They are generally more than willing to let you know when really good shoes come in. And who knows? They might eventually extend a small discount. —Kevin Aeh and Jessica Herman
