Streetwear Shop #7: Hundred%

Owned by the same folks at Heavyweight, Hundred% is pretty much in the same avenue but with a focus on a wide-range of sneakers of varying rarity. So if you need to get a fix on those harder-to-come-by Nikes, New Balances, Vans and Sauconys, this store should stay in the consciousness of local streetwear enthusiasts.

Streetwear Shop #8: Stussy KL


Stussy started out as a surfwear brand in the ’80s, eventually evolving into one of the most successful urban and streetwear brands ever with co-signs from many in the hip hop and skate scene. You don’t really have any credibility to your collection if you don’t have any Stussy in your closet, and Stussy KL is the direct source if you need to pick up exclusive tees, hats, bags and other collectibles. As an added bonus, Showroom is another store located right above Stussy that focuses more on skatewear.
