The Best Sneaker Stores in Seoul
Seoul’s streetwear scene is steadily growing and more and more stores are opening every month. Sneakers are more popular than ever and whether you are looking for something comfortable and affordable or something fresh and high-quality, this list has got you covered.
This lovely store is a sneaker enthusiast’s wonderland. 7294 Court only carries sneakers and specializes in high-quality items for any budget. This means, you’ll not only find top-notch Air Jordans on the shelves but also a great selection of affordable shoes. The two owners are from Korea and Canada and handpick their shoes from all over the world. However, shoppers need to be quick to pick up popular designs as the store only carries a certain amount of pairs per size.
Tom Greyhound Downstairs is one of the top addresses for streetwear lovers in the city. The lush green entrance of the store leads customers downstairs as the name implies. In the basement shop, you will find a wonderful selection of high-quality and popular streetwear brands from around the world. On top of that, the store also has up-and-coming brands on offer supporting the international streetwear scene. Sneakers are, therefore, a big part of the shops inventory.
Raum Edition Flagship Store
Running under South Korean brand LG, Raum Edition Flagship Store is anything but boring. Located in the heart of Seoul’s Apgujeong district, the store specializes in European accessories and shoes. The store picks items for their design and character, which is why you’ll find unique and up-and-coming brands here. That said, the store’s bestselling items are Bensimons, French design sneakers, as well as the popular multi-colored rain boots from Hunter.
My Boon might just be the best place to pick up a gift for all kinds of people. While the shop carries a neat selection of sneakers from brands like New Balance, Fila and Nike, it’s also a place where design meets technology. Next to the smart sneakers, you’ll find things like Master & Dynamic earphones and Leica cameras. On top of all that, My Boon also has its own bakery and fruit market. What a better place to pick up new shoes, techy gadgets and fresh produce all at once?
If you are a fan of the online magazine and e-tailer Hiphoper, you’ll be pleased to learn that the shop just opened up its very first off-line store in Gangnam. The shop offers the hottest sneakers across its two floors. There is also a cafe as well as a space for events and special items, including regular 50%-off sale events for brands like Stussy. 541Lab’s inventory includes Korean brands such as Buried Alive, Brownbreath, Stereo Vinyls and Leata.
