Japan’s sneaker and streetwear platform, SNKRDunk, is set to launch its first international flagship store at Singapore’s Mandarin Gallery.
The SNKRDunk Singapore flagship will span two levels and occupy more than 1370sqft of retail space. Scheduled to open its doors this Saturday (October 15), the store will be home to a range of sneakers, many of which are limited-edition collaborations, including exclusive collaborative pieces between SNKRDunk and other brands.
“Our space provides sneaker lovers with the opportunity to try on exclusive kicks before purchase – an experience that no other resale platform offers in Singapore,” the brand said in a statement.
Upon entering the store, customers will be welcomed by a large wall displaying more than 50 rare kicks. The store design features a grey and silver colour palette, paying homage to its sister stores in Harajuku and Osaka.
“With a burgeoning sneaker community, Singapore is a prime location for sneakerheads from all walks of life to connect through their shared passion,” said Kohei Hamada, global director at SNKRDunk.
“As a consumer-centric platform, the local community is at the forefront of our minds as we believe there is no commerce without community.”
Marking the launch, there will be an exclusive Sneaker Raffle where winners will be able to purchase one of 100 coveted pairs of sneakers at their original retail price.
