107 NW 5th Ave., 503-796-2733, compoundgallery.com.
Part streetwear and sneaker boutique—stocking clothes from labels like Stussy, Undefeated, and Portland's own Tabor Made and Trillblazin, and rare silhouettes from Nike, Converse and Vans—and part gallery that showcases emerging artists with a pop-art and street-art focus, Compound perhaps blends the confluence of art and streetwear that represents the new Old Town better than anyplace else.
