Supplying sneakerheads with outrageous designs, from adidas with wings to Nikes spotted with Ben & Jerry logos and colours, the sneaker industry is fast-becoming a pioneering voice in fashion. And Sneakerheads in the UAE can now get in on the action with the opening of Sneaker district - the all-encompassing, one-stop shop for all things sneakers. Launched on 28 November at the World Trade Centre in Abu Dhabi, The Sneaker District carries a number of the most sought-after kicks including OGs, Holy Grails and Hyper Strikes as well as apparel and collectables.
Made up of three floors, the sneaker haven includes an indoor basketball court and a cafe - because every true shopper knows the appetite you can work up after a shopping spree well done. Doning a warehouse-type interior, the Sneaker District's graffitied walls hold some of the most iconic collaborations and brands with a selection of Jordans, Swear Londons, Supreme and more. In aiming to promote streetwear culture, the venue is more than a store: it's a community. And the UAE's favourite sneaker, streetwear and collectables label, YouBetterFly has found a home in Sneaker District, which will be its third location in the UAE.
