"Selecting a location, we only had one place in mind the Northern Quarter."
This Summer, KershKicks open their flagship sneaker store in Manchester’s creative Northern Quarter. The brand has been created by brothers Sam and Ben Kersh.
The new store designs will reflect the brand’s commitment to sustainability within an intimate, personal and architectural atmosphere.
Contained within 1300 square foot with a real urban feel, which fits perfectly into the Northern Quarter surroundings. The muted Backdrop becomes a canvas to showcase their range of limited-edition sneakers, streetwear and accessories
Brands in KershKicks range from Jordan’s, Yeezy’s, Supreme, and some of the most sought-after collaboration’s including Nike x Off White. With Prices ranging from 50 up to over two thousand pounds for a rare pair of kicks. The store will stock rare, sought after collections so no more standing in line on the high street, in the hope you source a pair.
Sam Kersh, aged 24, began to source rare trainers (sneakers) during his time based over in California State whilst playing University soccer for CSULA. Sam commented “My passion for sneakers/trainers led to me sourcing one pair, then a couple of pairs for friends. It just grew from there. In LA the sneaker scene is huge and on my return to the North West I set up a partnership with my younger brother Ben, who has just finished Uni in Manchester. It’s been quite a journey and we are now close to opening our first store.”
Ben added “Selecting a location, we only had one place in mind – the Northern Quarter. After months of searching we finally found our ideal location at the end of 2018. Since then we have been working on getting everything in place for our summer opening.”
Sam added, “The Buy-Sell-Trade area of the business can help collectors sell unwanted trainers or exchange them for a different pair if they’re looking for something new, saving customers time and money.
