New kicks get the chicks.

It’s no secret we Aussies love our activewear. And while we live for a good pair of sneakers, they’re not always that easy to find. Until now.

English retailer, JD Sports (dubbed the king of trainers, no less), is just about to land Down Under with its first Australian store opening in Melbourne. The Melbourne Central space is set to launch on April 27 and will see the release of 169 exclusive products.

There will be 79 footwear styles and 91 apparel styles dropping, with the offering catering to men, women and children, and covering everything from performance-wear to lifestyle.

While you’re all dying for next Thursday to roll around, you can do some window shopping online.
