Fast Times Year Of The in stores & online now ☑️

A post shared by Fast Times Skateboarding (@fasttimes) on

Predominantly a skateboarding apparel store, Fast Times is home to brands such as environmentally conscious Patagonia and workwear brand Carhartt. But, you can also buy skateboards and all the necessary accessories if you’d like to give skating a go while you’re in Australia. Many limited-edition exclusive skateboard sneaker drops happen at Fast Times (like Nike SB, which is becoming increasingly popular and difficult to find), so the store hosts raffles, giving customers a fairer chance of getting a pair.

CULTURE KINGS

NSW, QLD, VIC, WA / ONLINE

Visiting a Culture Kings store in-person is an experience in and of itself, with live DJs, barbershops and 18k gold basketball nets so you can shoot some hoops (and win prizes!) The store claims international athletes, musicians and celebrities shop there; go and see if you can spot anyone famous.

SNEAKERBOY

VIC / ONLINE

Adelaide’s dedicated streetwear store, USG (Urban Street Gear), is the only place to buy brands like Nike ACG. Plus, you can get authentic Mitchell & Ness basketball jerseys, Champion jumpers and a huge range of caps.

UP THERE.

A more boutique streetwear store, Melbourne-based Up There. sells shoes and apparel along with specialised shoe-cleaning kits and jewellery. Up There. is known for its significant discounts on shoes (some of the biggest discounts you’ll find from an online retailer), so see if you can grab those Adidas you’ve been looking at with a $150 discount!

A post shared by Secret Sneaker Store Melbourne (@secretsneakerstoremelb) on

Selling Kanye West’s Yeezy, Supreme, Off-White, Bape and a variety of other streetwear, as well as designer brands, Secret Sneaker Store (SSS) is a consignment store. That means people sell their perfect-condition, second-hand, limited-edition sneakers and clothes in-store, and SSS takes a cut. SSS updates its website daily with details of new drops and the quantity available in-store (it’s usually only one or two pieces, so you’ll have to be quick!). There’s also a dedicated WeChat for international customers (ID:Secretsneakerstore), where the store posts new arrivals and current discounts.

UNDERGROUND SOCIETY – FACEBOOK

ONLINE

Australia’s biggest Facebook marketplace for reselling high-end, designer and streetwear brands, Underground Society has over 117,000 members. This group is also the perfect place for any information on new releases around Australia.
