ABC MART
ABC Mart is a shoe store chain that is all over Tokyo that sells trendy men’s and women’s shoes at a decent price. ABC Mart specializes in shoes, but also sells small quantities of other apparel such as shirts and socks. With popular Japanese brands (Yohji Yamamoto, mastermind Japan, NUOVO,  etc.) and Western brands (Vans, Reebok, Nike, Converse, Adidas, etc.), the shop brings in customers of many ethnicities and appeals to both genders. We specifically recommend the store in Shibuya, which is huge and packed to the brim with merchandise. From simple sandals to unique, intricate boots, ABC Mart brings a whole new meaning to “shoe shopping”. Within the sea of items, some certainly are treasure, and it is quite fun to try and find that rare deal that’s a steal. If you could use new shoes, or if you’re a “shoe-shopper”, then be sure to check this place out! You can’t get some of these shoes anywhere else (at least, not without paying a fortune)!
*It should also be noted that this shop is located in Center Gai, which is one of the busiest places in Shibuya as it is packed with lively restaurants and shops. If you ever visit, make sure you also explore the surrounding area!

If you’ve been looking for a pair of sneakers while in the Tokyo area, there really is only one brand that you should be going for. Started in 1949, Onitsuka Tiger is one of the oldest sneaker brands in Japan. Since they began making sneakers, Onitsuka Tiger has grown to become a reliable and fashionable brand, with 80% of its customers being foreigners. If you happen to be shopping in the Harajuku area of Tokyo, head over to the Omotesando branch of Onitsuka Tiger and see what you can find!
Of course if you can find the style of sneakers that Onitsuka Tiger has come to be known for in styles designed for both men and women. Even though you can find Onitsuka Tiger’s classic low top style sneakers at the Omotesando location, what is really neat to look for their collaboration sneakers. Onitsuka Tiger has recently teamed up with street-fashion icons, Publish Brand, for a new shoe. The shoe is an update to the Colorado Eighty-Five MT Samsara model. The shoe comes in two sleek colorways, an olive, earth-green, as well as a darker, more mysterious navy. Onitsuka and Publish Brand are marketing the shoe towards “creative nomads” and it definitely succeeds with its clean, lines and minimalist aesthetic that fit great with current street styles.
Onitsuka Tiger does not just offer you classic and high quality sneakers, but you can also pick up a variety of clothing and accessories. Like their sneakers, their clothing is available for both men and women. Whether you are looking for a new pair of jeans or something little fancier, Onitsuka Tiger can help you out. You can pick yourself up a great new party dress, skirt, or bomber jacket. Because the Onitsuka Tiger brand is known for their athletic sneakers, you can get yourself a whole new outfit to go with your new sneakers.
If you are looking to pick up an item from a 100% Japanese made label, then head over to Omotesando and give Onitsuka Tiger a visit!
Tip: Make sure to bring your foreign passport to deduct the 8% consumption tax (equivalent to VAT in Europe) off your purchase!
