Already 22 day time in Shanghai, have been around there quite several places to search and find somewhat called “streetwear” stores.
And here is the list for some of you coming here and have a problem of no idea where to get some street gears;
Oh, dont expect to see any photo of the shops here, I cant upload them now.
You know what they have for sell -Clot, Head Porter Plus, Whiz, Original Fake, Visvim (only shoes and accessories), Nike, and adidas Consortium. The best way to go there is by taxi. You find the address from their website, then tell the driver.
A resell shop, what they have is similar to conceptshop in HK. Just opposite ACU, cross the road and walk a bit. You will easily find it.
3. Less Mo
Same side with ACU, turn right in front of ACU and just keep walking straight around 5-10 minutes depends how fast you can walk. NH, Visvim, Bape, Fenom, and Play CDG are there! It is also resell shop.
A retail shop for many many brands I cant tell here, worth to go. I bought iDiom jacket here 🙂
Thank to the owner Ben for special discount. Located at G floor at the mall in Xintiandi. Get here by train at Huangpi Station.
Subcrew fans cant miss this. Walking distance from Gloss. This is a new location just moved from the old locaton.
Remember Hiroshi Fujiwara figure? This is a toy shop with some sneakers and brainchild apparel. Very near to Unity.
7. O-store Shanghai
In Sogo department store 4th floor. The biggest O-store in Shanghai. Get off at Jin’an Temple station.
8. Nike iD studio
Here you can make your own Nike iD (including NSW as well) with Shanghai exclusive material, hard to deny to not making a pair. A very big store consists of 2 floors by upstair is Nike stuff including AJs and downstair is a heaven for NSW fans. Get off at People Square Station.
9. 66 Plaza
It is a department store for luxury brands, which I.T. located here. You can find Comme Des Garcons and small corner of Visvim. You can walk from Sogo, but not really close. I warn you!
A very very nice decorated shop. The most interesting I found is SARU brand. Others stuffs are Tsubi, Onitsuka Tigers, Volcom, Cheap Monday, and more. It is located same area with ACU. I dont remember where exactly is but you can find its address from google. Please note that the stuff might not be interested by hardcore hypebeasts but worth a visit to see how impression inside.
For skateboarding fans, a retail shop for DC, etnies, Nike SB, Dimond Supply some sort of that. One is not far from ACU, another one you might take a taxi from Sogo (around 11-14 RMB to get there). I will give tell you for the address later.
These are all I know for now. I am still looking for other shops else (if any) and update for you guys.
Thank a lot to Kevin, my new friend from New Balance China and Alvin from adidas China for taking me around these good spots.
P.S. sorry if I am not giving you exactly address of each shop cuz I dont really know, but you can do some search for it.
