Despite inevitable pushback from long-time rivals Melbourne, it could be argued that Sydney is Australia’s true sneaker capital.
The city’s retail landscape (just like the CBD itself) has seen dramatic change in recent years, with various long-time sneaker locales making way for a new wave of retailers stocked to the brim with all the latest fire footwear. Walking the footsteps paved by OG hubs of days gone by, the new guard has given avid crep connoisseurs more options than ever before.
The first stop on many a Down Under adventure, Sydney will leave you struggling for shoe space in that suitcase. Book yourself some extra baggage allowance, sneakerheads – you’ll need it.
