Nothing says style more than great footwear, and Origin Kicks understands this better than anywhere else.
It has an unmatched reputation as the go-to destination for the very best pairs of luxury and rare sneakers – here’s where you’ll find everything from Adidas Yeezy, Retro Jordans, Nike Dunks and more.
Origin Kicks launched online in 2018 and soon became established as the number one source of below-the-ankle streetwear.
The team’s passion and knowledge didn’t go unnoticed and massive demand saw it make the jump onto the high street late last year.
Why did the owners choose this venue to host the bricks and mortar version of their vision? Reflecting almost everything they do, it was a carefully considered decision based on footwear history.
This building is where one of the very first Size? stores in the UK opened – a brand revered by footwear fanatics for its legendary collection. Origin Kicks aims to follow in those impressive footsteps, and by all accounts they’re not far off.
They have the kind of staff who live and breathe footwear, and together they’ve managed to set up an authentic kind of sneaker store; one where footwear aficionados of all ages can come in and shoot the breeze about their favourite pair of kicks – whether that’s a pair of old school Pumas or Kanye’s latest, greatest creation.
The team themselves put it best: “What makes us unique is that we’ve curated a collection consisting of some of the rarest and most coveted sneakers ever produced.
“Whether it’s a rare collaboration that only dropped internationally or a limited running sneaker that was exclusive to a small boutique, we aim to connect our customers with the items they want.”
Or to put it another way, think of your favourite independent record store – one staffed with people who live, eat and sleep music, and can track down that rare piece of vinyl you’ve been dreaming about for years.
Origin Kicks do that, but with the world’s most iconic footwear, from the distant past to the latest releases you won’t have heard of yet.
Now winter is well and truly over, it’s time to start thinking about looking your best in time for the upcoming spring-summer season.
And when it comes to showing out across Manchester, whether that’s in the clubs, the gym or simply striding down the street, a great pair of trainers is more important than anything.
This is where you go to find sneakers that not only fit like a dream but feel like an extension of you as a person.
Whether you’re a true sneakerhead looking for an exceptional pair of pumps, or just want a smart pair of running trainers that’ll go the distance, Origin Kicks have the knowledge and stock you’re looking for.
