UK’s popular sneaker store JD Sports reveals its first outlet in Singapore. Here’s what you can expect.
It’s not hard to purchase a pair of sneakers from Adidas, Nike or Puma online – click, buy and await the impending delivery. But for those who’re tactile and insist on a try-to-see-if-it-fits experience, UK store JD Sports houses over 10 of your favourite sneaker brands under one roof.
Sizing at over half as large as a basketball court, your favourites are all in one place – Adidas Stan Smiths, Nike Free Runs and New Balance 574s but with the added bonus – these Western European range of sneakers were previously unavailable in Asia and are now available here. How do you know so? Simply look out for an “Only At JD” metal tag. Now, that’s brick-and-mortar shopping at its best.
Following this first outlet in Jurong Point, you can look forward to a flagship storeopening in Ion Orchard somewhere between July and August. It’s said to be more than twice the size of the store in Jurong, and will be offering a full range of trainers, apparel and accessories.
JD Sports is located at #01-34, Jurong Point Shopping Centre.
