Calling all sneakerheads: if you’re obsessed with sneakers and want to be one step ahead in the sneaker game, then these three very fashion-forward and unique brands are for you. Housed at Pedder On Scotts, their extensive sneaker section not only carries your usual Nike and Adidas, but also some quirky alternatives such as American-based APL and Italian brand Golden Goose Deluxe Brand – all of which are otherwise pretty hard to find in Singapore. Blending style with substance, these trainers look more like statement shoes than gym sneakers, but their comfort levels are still totally gym-worthy.
