It will be the first specialist sneaker store, giving shoppers the chance to get their hands on a wide range of luxury ‘kicks’, including rare and exclusive limited editions, streetwear and deadstock collections.
The brand also offers shoppers are a marketplace for sneaker and streetwear enthusiasts to sell and trade their own products or collections.
KershKicks co-founder Sam, 27, said: “It’s been an amazing journey so far and we couldn’t be more excited to take the next step in our home city. Scousers have been some of our most loyal customers and Instagram followers and have supported us since the very beginning. So, we can’t wait to welcome everyone through our doors.
“The experience of seeing, touching and then trying on your grails in store is something scousers haven’t yet had the opportunity to do and it’s an honour to be able to bring this to our home city.”
KershKicks is known for being home to the most exclusive, hyped streetwear clothing in the UK, including Supreme, Palace and Anti Social Social Club as well as its ever-growing range of sneakers including the world’s most sought-after designs such as – Air Max, Dunks, Jordans, Yeezy’s, New Balance and more.
Its growing brand presence is also resulting in a famous following, with celebrity clientele including musicians such as Lewis Capaldi, Aitch and Centralcee, as well as being a hub for many Premier League Football-stars, YouTubers such as KSI and Stephentries and many more.
Sam continued: “What makes us different is our buy, sell, trade model making us a hub for both sneaker enthusiasts and the casual sneaker fan. We offer people the opportunity to make money on their own collections and trade for their most desired grails. We believe that this unique element of our business has massively contributed to our popularity over the last three years.”
Brother and co-founder Ben added: “It’s a really exciting time for us both and the brand right now. We know Liverpool is a powerhouse of culture, style and a leader of trends, making it the perfect place to open our doors. We just can’t wait to welcome fellow sneakerheads into the store very soon and see what our home city has to offer.”
The brothers already have stores in Manchester and Glasgow which opened in 2019 and 2021 respectively.
Ben ended: “It’s a great feeling to be able to showcase our brand here on our doorstep. There is nothing quite like bringing your brand back to where it started all those years ago.
“Opening in Liverpool really is a dream come true – and proves that our original vision of bringing a piece of this unique culture to the UK, has become a genuine reality.”
The Slater Street store, currently undergoing works, is due to open before the end of the July and will create up to ten jobs for the local community.
