Manchester Arndale is delighted to announce that luxury streetwear retailer Kick Game will be moving into a 1,662sq ft space at the centre in December 2021.

The London-based retailer was founded by sneaker enthusiast brothers Rob and David Franks in 2013 and has become a destination-retailer which stocks rare and sold-out trainers and streetwear from brands such as Air Jordan, Nike, Yeezy, Off-White, Trapstar, Fear of God Essentials and Supreme.

Kick Game has capitalised on the rising demand for limited edition sneakers and streetwear and is targeting sales of £50M by the end of 2022. The retailer has a strong online presence with nearly 50,000 YouTube subscribers to its channel which regularly hosts well-known sneakerheads from the world of music and fashion.

However, Kick Game is keen to increase its presence on the UK high street and Manchester Arndale will be the fifth new store it has opened in the past 12 months, after recently arriving at Leeds Trinity Shopping Centre and Birmingham’s Bullring & Grand Central, and is planning for further stores across the UK over the next two years.

The arrival of Kick Game follows the recent arrivals of fashion brands, Tommy Hilfiger, Canada Goose, Kurt Geiger, and sister company Carvela reaffirming Manchester Arndale’s status as the city’s premier fashion destination in the run-up to the busy Christmas period.
