Last month, edgy and unique footwear and apparel brand Kick Essentials opened their first Manhattan location at 542 Broadway. We are excited for our new retail neighbors to open their business here and wish them success as they get up and running. We asked Kick Essentials a few questions about their brand and this is what they had to say:
1. What does your organization do? What industry are you in?
Kick Essentials is a luxury sneaker and streetwear shop that specializes in premium and limited edition footwear and apparel. The brand offers a variety of styles and exclusive apparel from brands including Nike’s Jordan brand. Stay up to date with the sneakerhead company by following them on TikTok and Instagram at @kick_essentials
2. What brought your company to SoHo?
We decided to open in SoHo because it one of the best shopping areas in all of New York City and it’s also a very happening area. We love the look of the buildings in the neighborhood and it’s perfect for the look we are going for with our brand. We also have a store at the high-end Aventura Mall in Florida, so it’s very exciting for us to now be expanding to NYC!
3. What sets your company apart from the rest?
What sets our store apart from the rest is how unique our products are. There are many shoes we carry that are no longer being made or are from a couple years ago. They are brand new and have never been worn before. People hold onto these shoes for years and then decide to sell them later because they become rarer as time goes on.
