Keepin' the thread alive? No problem...

- I've been to Phantac a couple days ago. They did have Visvims (not many!), I remember seeing FBTs in a US 10.

- MTS was open when I went there. Their stock has gotten much worse, though, in my opinion.

- Atmos: Don't know, sorry.

- Magnetic seems to be random in their decisions of when to open their store. 2 out of 3 times I'm in the area it's closed.

Update: Check out URA by Shilin MRT station - reseller that is on par with Apery. Also, there is Invincible for Undefeated gear and Overkill which stocks a selection of Subcrew items (both of these are in Zhongxiao). Lastly, represent your city with a TAIPEI CITY cap by Remix (granted, these are cool, but I'm unsure if they are still available - edit: seems like they have tees in the same style now as well).

Meet-up? In the spirit of keepin' the TW scene alive, why not have a HB meet-up sometime? I'm in Taipei right now, and will be here until the end of September. Let me know who's down...

Hmmm... I am not in taipei... I think the reason why taipei thread is so dead is because there isnt much taiwanese here... A problem is taiwanese usually do not know english... Thats why we cant see them contributing to all the forums...

anyone know of any good shops in Taichung? i know there is Apery here, but thats about all i know. The Idee Department Store is goin out of business so they having these sales, but there isnt much (some Mishka, Atmos, Stage, and very few Stussy), and some of the stuff is questionable in regards to fake/authentic. Any suggestions?

I look how you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck, I am smart, capable and most importantly, I am free in all the ways you are not.

Update: For those who are on the look-out for kicks, I recently stumbled across Shoexpress. It's on Zhongxiao Dong Lu, two minutes from (the old) Sogo walking into an easterly direction, HK-style located on the top floor of a small, crappy mall (no freestanding structure; to be entered via a corridor that's connected to the sidewalk; no door). I found this by pure chance. Although it's a small space, their selection seemed good (haven't checked for fakes though, so someone else should swing by to confirm their legit-ness).

P.S. We need more people for the meet-up. So far it's just Savag3 and I.

P.P.S. I know virtually nothing about Taichung, sorry. Maybe another member we be able to help out.

Their web site is trash. Better check their Yahoo! page or - like your friend did - visit the store.

Stage is way too expensive considering it is designed from a guy in Taiwan.

I'm not a big fan, either. Not because of the fact that the designer is Taiwanese, though...

- Visited TUANTUAN boutique in Xinyi recently (located in the Eslite mall close to Warner Village). They have been around for a few weeks now, or so I hear. Brands include Comme des Gar

Co Oper is the store near Phantac right?


It's quite close to Phantac, yes. And it's really small, like 5 square meters. Literally.

Oh yea, Visvim... it's a shame not much of their stuff can be found in Taipei. But I always update once I discover a new spot... so if I do, I'll let you know.

Let's say sometime mid-September then. Especially since I will be leaving again soon after.

Savag3: Thanks for the heads up (Trinity). Went there, looks kinda nice.
- Regarding CLOT: Check out hype1110 on Yahoo! (see link provided in first post). Oh, and if you happen to buy anything... tell him that foreigner guy who copped a shitload of stuff referred you to him... he will know for sure ;)
- About Nike Tech Pack: Haven't heard/seen nothing, sorry.
- And Visvim: Found a few spots that stock some items. (Again, check the updated list on the first page).

Everybody: Sorry for not responding for a while. The meet-up can still happen, if people are interested... I'm gonna go ahead and randomly pick a date (as I don't know for how long BbSix will be here): this Thursday (September 20th)? Or any day after that? Let me know what you think... also, I have a (big!) update for y'all:
- Grand Giant: New Era store in Ximending (that hip-hop alley...)
- Yo Yo Station: same location
- Beetle Bespoke: Kicks + Kiks Tyo in Ximending (Fashion Mall, I think it's called)
- Sense Organ: Devilock and other gear next to Magnetic (you know, the one that's always closed...)
- JP SHOW: good reseller!
- NIPTUCK: store selling their own designs
- SWISH: another TW brand, but other stuff, as well
- ... D.W.A.R.P. (brizzle's new Taipei favorite!): MMJ + Roen, roar, Number Nine, Undercover, ... you name it (plus they also have an own label, which seems to be inspired by the aforementioned Japanese high-end shit but is surprisingly moderately priced... support them!)
- Lastly, Yahoo! link service: I have updated the first post with links to many stores' Yahoo! online shops... to make matters more convenient, I figured. Also, I found a couple good online resellers (apee92, hype1110, and KPster for New Balance heads)

Keepin' the scene alive!

" (Beetle Bespoke: Kicks + Kiks Tyo in Ximending (Fashion Mall, I think it's called)"

Just stumbled across this place on my last visit to Taiwan, Definitly a spot I hit up evertyime im here. There are actually two locations one on the 3rd floor in the mall and the other is right down the street by a Mcdonalds (ask one of the employee's for directions) They carry pretty much most sb's, air max 90's, 1's, and air forces. Same goes with the other store they carry a lot of heat at pretty unhyped prices. I got a pair of slam cities there for 200$. Also dont forget to sign up for their VIP program to get another10% off and ask for a recipet to get a tax deduction at the airport on your way out of taiwan.

Does anyone know of any online stores from Taiwan that will ship overseas to US? I'm mainly looking to pick up some Taiwan brands like Remix and Revelator. I'm back in the US now so yeah. But after wearing this Remix shirt I bought, I'm impressed by the quality of the T-shirt. Or if anyone is willing to do a pickup for me if you are coming back to the US. I'm in Washington state so yeah.

BTW, if anyone heads south to Taichung, or more specifically Fengyuan I can tell you were a few shops are in Fengyuan. (I'm from Fengyuan).

Also, I just remembered. There is a Nike Outlet near the MRT station "Dapinglin" on the green line. It's actually not THAT near- it's probably 3-4 large blocks away. You could probably go there and ask where the Nike Outlet is.

Selling (if my sig still lists it, it's still available!): N&F Japan Heritage 32, N&F x Big John 31 and 32

Just a heads up all the nike stores are doing 10% off and you get another 10% off if you spend over $100 U.S i believe. I just picked up some retro 3s in white for around 95$U.S smokeyface
