Store Visit | Trainer Heaven at K-Skit Japan

Many Japanese are crazy about anything “exclusive” be it food or fashion. So it is no wonder that the market for trainers is massive out there. Big brands have long since cottoned on the exclusives market and continue to drop Japan exclusives at regular intervals.  Add to that the Japanese obsession with collecting rare items and you have one heck of a place to go shopping for trainers.

One place that should top a trainer fanatic’s shopping destinations is K-Skit in the Kichijoji area of Tokyo. This is a heaven for vintage and rare finds. The towering shelves are laden with shrink wrapped second hand trainers, all lovingly cleaned and near spotless. 

The aircon is tuned to an optimum temperature to keep the trainers in the best condition. However, what you see is what you get; there are no stockpiles of sizes. If luck is with you, you might just find that long looked for pair in your size. If not, it is still a great place to visit for any trainer fan.

It's worth taking a further look at K-Skit here. - Yasumi.
