Fa Yuen Sneakers Street and Factory Outlets – Mong Kok

Fa Yuen Street is a long long street with many sections, at the northern end you can find Fa Yuen Street Market which is similar to Ladies Market while at the southern end from Argyle Street to Soy Street you can find one of the worlds largest gatherings of sneaker and sports shoe stores.

There are 100s of stores! Any type of sports shoe, runners, sneakers, basketball shoes etc etc, they are all here. Think of a brand name, it will be here.

Contrary to some misinformation on the internet (who knew that could happen?) you do not need to book a visit. Fa Yuen Street is just a normal everyday street with normal everyday stores, bar the fact that they all sell sports shoes and sporting gear.
