Written by Sam Mahon
Sneakers are a huge trend no matter what your age is and in DublinTown we have an excellent range just for you.
We all know how important it is to stay up to date with fashion, especially when it comes to sneakers due to their exclusivity, below we have listed the places to get the newest and most exclusive sneakers in DublinTown.
Size? 26 Wicklow Street
Size? is known worldwide for providing its customers with the latest sneakers from the best brands before its competitors. Size? often has celebrity customers such as Conor McGregor and this is a result of their range of designer sneakers that often come in exclusive colours and minimized stock.
Brown Thomas, 88-95 Grafton Street
In the basement floor of Dublin’s finest designer and lifestyle store lies an array of designer sneakers such as Valentino Garavani, Gucci, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen and many more. Brown Thomas is known for delivering quality, hence the prices of these sneakers, but these products are at the pinnacle of the designer sneakers world and contain many must-have items for sneaker heads.
Schuh, 47-48 O’Connell Street
Schuh offers something very different to the aforementioned stores as it offers a selection of retro sneakers as well as the latest trends. Brands like Adidas Originals, Reebok and Champion have seen a major resurgence in Ireland thanks to this store who also offer a range of more formal shoes, which only adds to the diversity within the shop.
Footlocker, 49 O’Connell Street
This American-owned retailer has seen huge success in Ireland as they incorporate the latest American sneaker trends into the Irish trends to make an extensive blend of sneaker culture. Footlocker is home to one of the largest collections of sneakers from brands like Nike, Adidas and Puma that is sure to satisfy most sneaker heads needs.
Lifestyle Sports, 57-58 Grafton Street
It would have been unjust to compose a list of lifestyle and running sneakers without this store. Lifestyle Sports is the ultimate hub for the latest running sneakers from headline brands like New Balance, Under Armour and Nike for great value.
Sports Direct, 18 North Earl Street
Sports Direct recently opened a store in the proximity of the Spire which has many floors packed with great deals and sales on all items, whether it be clothing or footwear. Sports Direct may not have the same stock as its competitors but its value for what it sells is unmatched making it a great store to buy running shoes from.
Intersport Elvery’s, 18 Henry Street
Elvery’s has always been a haven for athletes, particularly rugby players or players from the Gaelic games. They have a great collection of footwear from great affordable brands like Asics, New Balance and Under Armour. They also cover running over all terrains.
Hopefully this list will satisfy the raging sneaker heads and devoted athletes that roam the streets of town in a desperate but fruitless search for new sneakers.
