“As a sneaker collector, you naturally gravitate towards fellow enthusiasts. During these camp-outs and sneaker events, you meet new people and form lasting friendships. That was how this partnership began.” - David Matriano The Singapore - based friends are also behind some of the thriving sneaker communities in Singapore. The difficulty of finding venues for their group events gave them the idea to come up with this restaurant.

â€œ We want this to be a place to hang out, host events, shop or even trade sneakers. Everything a sneakerhead could ask for!â€? - Katrina Matriano The look and feel is very casual. The kicks ondisplay are well-curated, with the requisite limited edition NMDs, Yeezys and Ultra Boost. Clearly they are going for quality over quantity of their inventory
“Normally, people are intimidated to window shop sneakers, especially in the mall. Here, you’re not obliged to buy! You have time to check out what you want.” - Adrian Abenes. The food choices don’t disappoint either. The burgers are hand-crafted using prime angus beef patties. The steaks are prime ribs. Real potato fries are dashed with truffle oil and cheese. As their slogan says, “Gourmet not Fast Food.” The menu is a play on iconic sneakers such as Cheezy Boost, King LePrawn pasta, Air Macs, Stan’s Meat, OG, and of course, Quickstrike.
