Looking to up your footwear game? Here are our favorite stores in the city for limited edition kicks, caps, tees, and other streetwear essentials.
Launched in 1999, 8Five2 was one of the first local authentic skateboard and street fashion stores to open in Hong Kong. They carry a number of both popular and underground labels like Primitive, Know1ledge, Nike SB, Vans, and Spitfire. In addition, their gorgeously curated shop features marble floors and glass bench displays.
For high concept streetwear, you can’t go wrong at JUICE. Established in 2003 in Causeway Bay, this store carries a fine selection of contemporary streetwear and sneaker brands including Adidas, Bleu de Paname, Buscemi, Converse, Hood by Air, and more.
Founded in 1949, Onitsuka Tiger is one of Japan’s oldest shoe stores. The label is known for its ‘tiger stripes’ emblazoned across its shoes, which come in colorful varieties, including graphic and metallic ones. Now a full-fledged streetwear brand, Onitsuka Tiger has several outposts in Hong Kong, including a concept shop in Gateway Arcade in Tsim Sha Tsui which sells apparel, luggage, graphic tees, and, of course, loads and loads of sneakers.
Y-3 is a collaboration between Adidas and celebrated Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto. Here, sportswear and streetwear meet luxury fashion. In addition to some truly drool-worthy sneakers, Y-3 sells men’s and women’s apparel and accessories.
This store tends to carry small brands from California, New York, and the U.K., such as Good Worth & Co., Doom sayers, Mishka, Only NY, and more. Offering colorful sneakers, caps, hoodies, and sweatshirts, this is a great choice for those on the hunt for women’s streetwear apparel.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.
