Unique sneakers rule at this youth-infused Evanston boutique, where young artists display their own artwork, graphic T-shirts and hats. Co-owners Danielle Dickerson and Dorie Hicks keep the focus on footwear, though: ATE20 is a one-stop shop for kicks by Lacoste, Puma, PF-Flyers, Converse and Vans -- brands that are otherwise hard to find in the 'burbs. Commercial sportswear shares the racks with DIY duds, creating an adventurous vibe that's in keeping with the co-owners' outlook -- the two journeyed to New York City, exploring sneaker shops in Soho and the like, before bringing their newfound knowledge back home.
