Sneakerheads, listen up because we’ve got great news. Japan’s leading sneaker platform, SNKRDUNK clearly has big plans for the region, starting with a new global app and its first-ever international flagship store, located at Mandarin Gallery in Singapore. The new space will feature 100 hyped pairs of sneakers, including limited edition Travis Scott and Sacai collaborations, with a major draw — all these coveted kicks will be sold at their original retail prices.
Before we take you through a tour of the store though, here’s a little more about SNKRDUNK and its mobile application. Established for the international community of sneaker enthusiasts and collectors, the Global App, separate from its native Japanese version, has amassed a rapidly-growing user base of 4.5 million users worldwide, with significant growth across the Asia Pacific region.
The company is known for having a comprehensive authentication process that ensures all its sneakers are 100% authentic, thanks to a team of expert sneaker authenticators that verify the products against a database of authentication records. Such quality checks are especially important due to the issue of replicas and fakes in the resale market — essentially, you can be assured that you’re buying the real deal here.
The latest SNKRDUNK flagship store in Singapore comes after successful openings in Harajuku and Osaka, where the retail space houses a diverse collection of sneakers you can look and feel before dropping some significant dollars. These include limited edition and exclusive drops such as Nike’s highly-coveted Jordans with Travis Scott, Yeezys, and sold-out New Balance collaborations. Moving forward, the physical space will also showcase exclusive collaborative pieces between SNKRDUNK and other hype brands.
“With a burgeoning sneaker community, Singapore is a prime location for sneakerheads from all walks of life to connect through their shared passion,” says Kohei Hamada, SNKRDUNK’s Global Director. “As a consumer-centric platform, the local community is at the forefront of our minds as we believe there is no commerce without community.”
