SUMMARY

For all the hype beasts, sneaker heads, streetwear fanatics – experience Dubai’s Streetwear scene. While Dubai has grown to a globally recognized shopping destination, so has its independent local Streetwear scene. In this tour, Mr Shef Codes, a sneaker head with over 400 pairs, guides us through some of Dubai’s best places from budget and exclusive tags to Japanese and local fashion. We made sure to show the diversity of the industry by including budget shops and high end retailers to spin off service providers like sneaker cleaning. This tour will answer the question – how does Dubai’s streetwear scene look like, and where to get the latest gear. We also cover some online retailers and online forums in the last card.

Mr Shef Code Dubai
Mr Shef Codes

Yo, I’m Mr Shef Codes. I was raised in Dubai and have experienced the evolution of the nightlife and streetwear scene right from it's beginning. Professionally, I’m a professional Hip-Hop DJ performing 3-5 nights a week in the largest clubs in Dubai. During my time off, I hunt the latest sneakers. I’m super proud of the evolution Dubai is making – we, our community, is finding an own cultural identity with local designers and music producers.

White Rabbit Satwa Dubai
White Rabbit
White Rabbit, a fresh player to the scene provides a new perspective to the growing streetwear culture. White Rabbit, conveniently located in Satwa, offers high quality goods for great prices. Here, you can get caps, hoodies, sport jackets, and jeans - no name brands and off-license merch, coming right from Iran to our doorsteps. Speak to Mehdi, the owner, he might offer a slight discount if you negotiate.
Selectshop Frame Dubai
Selectshop FRAME
Just behind Dubai Mall in D3, Dubai’s Design District, is a dual combined store, Selectshop FRAME and Yui. Peter, the owner, sells hand-picked Japanese and sneakers, fashion, merch and memorabilia - including brands such as Neighbourhood and Medicom Toys (Bearbricks). Also, there is a section for music – vinyl records. They also serve a speciality coffee. If your hungry, grab an incredible Shio Ramen (45AED) or Gyuoza (35AED) in Peters attached store named after his daughter Yui.
General 3am Dubai Streetwear
General (3am)
General (3am in Arabic), is one of our favourite stores in Dubai once located in D3*. Not only is it a fashion store, it also holds local art and good coffee. This place has become a ‘unspoken’ hangout spot for the community. General or 3am carries and exhibits some of the largest international brands such as Kappa and Filling Pieces, upcoming western brands like Gold Street, and Dubai’s best regional and local streetwear such as Darya by Alia, Precious Trust, Arwa Al Banawi, Shabab Int., upclassics, Broke Club Official, Anthology to name a few. The prices here are much higher than in White Rabbit, but these are not only guaranteed originals but exclusive AF. We suggest getting some of the local #supportlocaltalent. *General had recently moved location and is now part of Alserkal Avenue, a cultural hub of art galleries and studios housed in renovated warehouses.
The Good Life Dubai, Sneakers, Streetwear
The Good Life Space
A few warehouses down is your must visit place for anything to do with Sneakers – The Good Life Space in Alserkal Avenue. The Good Life Space run by our homie Karim, tuned his passion, sneakers, into his business. They focus on exclusive pairs (and some sneaky bags and headwear), carrying all sorts of Nike, Adidas, Asics, Jordan collabs. If your keen to check out more places in Alserkal Avenue, you can watch our full Alserkal Avenue Tour. Right across is infamous El Seed Street Art Studio and down the road The Flip Side Vinyl Record Store.
Cheap Sneakers Dubai
Sneaker Outlet
Indeed, an unexpected place to mention - Sun & Sand Sports Outlet. Yup, we featured this to give you a diverse tour from exclusive to budget. Sun & Sand Sports is the mega sportswear seller company in the UAE holding exclusivity to Nike and other major sportswear brands. They are so big that they have several outlet malls all over Dubai – to sell last-size items at discounted rates. Once you enter, endless piles of shoe boxes stacked on top of each other might intimidate you. However, if you look properly, you can find some incredible deals.
Solecleanse Dubai Sneaker cleaning
Solecleanse
Get your sneakers cleaned! With the rise of the streetwear and sneakers industry, more & more services provide are appearing & innovating, such as Solecleanse the sneaker cleaning service. Solecleanse, one of our favourite Streetwear Startups, takes in ruined shoes, repackages them, and returns them better-than-new. The service prices vary from 50-200AED. They have a cute space in Al Attar Business Center where you can find selected memorabilia and, if she’s not out for meetings, meet the lovely owner Kika!
Online Streetwear Players
At this point, we must physically split ways. However, let’s continue the tour digitally! Here are some other suggested places to check out, ecommerce players, and online platforms to connect: Local Street Wear: • Amongst Few International Street Wear: • Concepts Ecommerce: • Upclassic Forums: • Banned • Dubai Sneakerheads We summarize this tour with a thanks and bye.
