As soon as Foot Locker Australia announced that the 11th of October is the opening day of their new Power Store, hundreds of sneaker campers descended the QV Melbourne shopping mall, to be one of the first to set foot on the new store and perhaps have a shot at copping some impressive heat restocks.

Much love to Foot Locker Australia for inviting The Kickz Stand crew over to their launch party.

The store is massive. Perhaps the biggest sneaker store currently in Australia. We were immediately greeted and welcomed by the most amazing and friendly staff this side of the planet. The first thing that catches your eye as you enter is the fiber glass basketball backboard flanked by two enormous screens. We would find out later that they are attached to gaming consoles, wherein visitors could play their favorite games. Positioned to right is a set of wooden bleachers. The bleachers immediately gave us the premium basketball feels. Not only was it well designed but it provided a functional place to hang out and try on kicks. The top floor was literally on another level. Spacious and elegantly designed. This was where all the dedicated lifestyle, women’s and children’s gear would be. Make sure you check out and take a selfie with the dope throne made of sneaker boxes!

As explained to us by their Senior Director, Fletcher Adams, this Power Store is only one of 6 in the world and the first in Asia Pacific. Their vision was to provided an awesome place not just to cop the latest and greatest gear but a place where the various subcultures of sneakerdom could meet and hang out. The various stunning iconic pictures of Melbourne that adorned the joint further reinforced this vibe!

So what are you waiting for? Head on down to Foot Locker QV, check out this cool new spot and maybe cop a heat or two!!!
