KICKSTW Consignment Store Grand Opening
Melbourne Sneakerheads rejoice! There’s a new consignment store on the block. From online to on-site, what initially started as an eBay store, has now turned to a promising sneaker and streetwear consignment shop located in Melbourne’s South East. Stocking a diverse selection of sought after garments and coveted sneakers, KICKSTW offers Hypebeasts and Sneakerheads respectively a chance to purchase some of their grails.
We linked up with good friend, Jay and Dale from The Kicks Stand who informed us on the grand opening last Saturday, and so we made the commute to Oakleigh. Upon arrival, Steven Wei, founder and owner of KICKSTW, eagerly greeted us and excitedly showed us the innards of his pride and joy. He spoke about his love and passion for fashion and sneakers, and his never ending hunt for his most desired pairs including Nike Hyper Adapt 1.0 and pairs from the Bin 23 collection. Steven’s aim is to offer not only a friendly in-store customer experience but also a minimally designed space designed to draw attention to the vast array of sneakers available on hand.
We also ran into a personal childhood legend and AFL superstar, Anthony Koutoufides who was in complete admiration of the store. We asked Kouta if he had a favourite pair, to which he responded with “has to be the Thunder 4’s!” Great to know we share a little something in common.
All in all, a new consignment is a great new addition to Melbourne’s sneaker scene. As for the Northerners and West-siders, it’s only another reason to visit the other side of town. Finally, from all the lads at DopeKoto, we wish them all the best and look forward to visiting again soon.
