Why we love it: While Nike is well-loved for its performance apparel, the brand has taken its fashion nous up a notch thanks to recent footwear collaborations with fashion designer Matthew M Williams (founder of urban designer label, Alyx) and hip-hop artist, Travis Scott among others. The brand’s apparel continues to be a technical leader with fabrics that out-perform others in the gym and look slicker than most on the street.
What to buy: Nike’s Air Jordans lead the pack in fashion-forward footwear. The style has evolved thanks to design and technical upgrades making them more edgy and street smart.

Why we love it: Highs and Lows is an independently operated streetwear boutique that holds its own against the big multinationals. It stocks an awesome range of footwear and apparel from both established athleisure brands (Adidas, Asics, Nike, Puma and Reebok to name a few), and up-and-coming labels (Futur and Neighbourhood among them).
What to buy: Kanye West’s Yeezy athleisure line. Sneakers in the range typical sell out immediately with fans queuing for days to get their hands on the most Instagrammed sneaker ever. Don’t fret if you miss the Yeezys – there are plenty of other highly coveted sneakers instore.
