Footwear retailer steps in to Liverpool One

Grosvenor has announced new retail activity at Liverpool ONE, where luxury footwear brand Kick Game has signed for a 3,500 sq ft unit on South John Street.

Kick Game will join Kenji, the Japanese-inspired homeware and stationary retailer, which is upsizing its store by 40%.

Kick Game Liverpool ONE is set to open in July and will mark the brand’s city debut, joining stores in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds.

Alicia Thompson, CEO of Kick Game, said: “Liverpool is increasingly becoming an urban hub for streetwear fashion and hype sneakers, which made it a key location for us to extend the reach of our brand. We are hugely excited to be moving onto South John Street at Liverpool ONE, and look forward to opening our doors in a few months time, introducing our exclusive selection of luxury sneakers and streetwear to a new Liverpool audience.”

Alison Clegg, managing director, asset management, Grosvenor, added: “We are proud that renowned fashion labels such as Kick Game continue to choose Liverpool ONE as a key location within their expansion journeys. This signing, combined with the upsizing of Kenji, reiterates Liverpool ONE as a long-term destination for brands to put down roots. Both retailers contribute to the destination’s varied and vibrant offering, which we are constantly adapting to mirror the evolution of consumer demand.”
