As far as streetwear connoisseurs are concerned, New York City’s Stadium Goods is the pinnacle in the sneaker world.
Making its inaugural debut in Hong Kong, the coveted sneaker and streetwear consignment store will be at Pacific Place for a three-week residency from 25 September to 15 October 2017.
As pioneers of progressive retail concepts, Pacific Place provides shoppers with the exclusive privilege to view over 100 sneakers from the personal collection of Sneaker News and Sneaker Con founder, and Stadium Goods Chief Marketing Officer, Yu-Ming Wu, as well as purchase over 40 styles.
There is a separate pop-up for those seeking a bespoke experience, where a line-up of local and international artists are on-site to customize your sneakers into one-off collector’s items – decorating them with hand-painted illustrations.
American artist, Kendra Dandy, famous for her imaginative illustrations and colourful patterns, and Sophie Roach, known for her cosmic and intricate drawings, will be showcasing their unique designs by turning plain white sneakers into hand-drawn works of art.
Meanwhile, local artists, Bao Ho, Queen of Hong Kong’s street art scene and champion of Secret Walls Hong Kong Series 3, Zoie Lam, creator of Zlism, an imaginary planet filled with funny and quirky characters, and Kristopher Ho, known for his impressive wall murals and whimsical designs, gives your sneakers a one-of-a-kind makeover in their signature styles.
The sneaker revolution reflects some of the most significant urban and fashion style developments of the last few decades.
From luxury branded collections to celebrity powered collaborations, fashion sneakers have now become a global obsession. Opened in late 2015, Stadium Goods has quickly become a ‘temple’ for streetwear fans and serious collectors to buy, sell and marvel at some of the most hyped items of all time.
Sneaker addicts will be able to view Yu-Ming’s personal collection featuring the Atmos x Nike Air Max 1 “Safari”, his first ever pair of collectibles, and Nike Air Mag, known as one of holy grails for sneakerheads who grew up during the “Back to the Future” movie era.
This will be the first time for Stadium Goods to set up a shop in Hong Kong, with Pacific Place being the only destination for the city’s discerning collectors to buy from a wide selection of largely-sold out editions.
