Most weekends are spent in board shorts, bikinis and bare feet. But for the rare times when you do need to be fully clothed, the Coast has some epic stores to choose from. From skatewear and surf apparel to sneaker shops, here are seven of the Gold Coast’s best streetwear stores.
Step into Sneakerboy and you enter sneaker heaven. The omni-channel store features brands such as New Balance, Adidas, Air Jordan, Nike, Prada, Dior and Gucci. Their VM display feels futuristic with LEDs signs running underneath each shoe. Once you decide on a shoe, you place your order on an instore tablet & it will be delivered to your door.
Have you ever wanted to buy new threads, get a fresh cut & have a coffee all at the same time? The boys at Alfred’s have provided. The flagship store is inspired by the 60s with raw exposed brick, hand painted signs and an original record player. Shop brands such as Brixton and Banks Journal, then head to their barber for a fresh cut or their diner for a burrito and a tinnie.
Sean Scott Boutique
Sean Scott is a renowned Australian photographer who captures the beauty of our beaches, marine life and landscapes. Lucky for us, he also has a boutique tucked on James Street where he sells photography prints as well as surf inspired apparel.
The doormat in Mr Simple sets the scene. On the way in, it reads ‘G’Day’ and on the way out it reads ‘Cheers’. Simple yet effective. This simplicity translates into the store design as well with white walls, gold lettering and minimal visual merchandising. Shop their collection of tees, chinos and shirts (including their schmick linen range) made for every day at Pacific Fair.
