Sole Searching: These Are the 10 Best Stores to Shop Women's Sneakers in Japan

One of the best sneaker scenes in Asia.

Known as an international mecca for avid sneakerheads from all over the world, Japan has probably one of the best sneaker scenes in Asia. Comprised of countless ubiquitous store chains and specialty boutiques, we’ve gathered the best stores for women’s sneakers in both Tokyo and Osaka.

Whether you’re on the hunt for Kanye West‘s iconic adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Zebra,” or you’ve been meaning to get your hands on Nike‘s Melody Ehsani “Fearless Ones” Air Jordan 1, our top picks have got your shopping needs covered. The next time you find yourself along the bustling streets of Harajuku or you’re in need of a break from all the eating at Japan’s food capital, be sure to visit one of the stores in the list below.

While you’re here, don’t forget to check out the Moscow edition of our “Sole Searching” series.
