The Las Vegas consignment store is believed to house the largest sneaker collection in the world.
Calling all sneakerheads and hypebeasts, Urban Necessities is now open at Boulevard Riyadh City.
Commonly referred to as UN among enthusiasts, Urban Necessities is a boutique and consignment store specialising in streetwear and sneakers. Here, you can shop for exclusives, hard-to-find collectable shoes and new drops that may have sold out elsewhere. The new Riyadh location is the place to find popular brands such as Adidas, Nike and Timberland, and rare sneakers including Yeezy’s and Air Jordan’s.
Urban Necessities’ first store outside of the US has been conceptualised as a hub for the community of streetwear and sneaker enthusiasts in Riyadh. The popular shop, known for its clean aesthetic and easy-to-navigate shelves and racking, also sells clothes from Chrome Hearts, Off-White and Supreme, collectables from BAPE, Bear Bricks and Kaws, in addition to Urban Necessities’ own-branded merchandise.
One of the store’s defining features is its strict authenticity standards, which is crucial in the streetwear and sneaker market. Each item on sale has been thoroughly inspected and verified to ensure customers receive only genuine products.
In addition to its Riyadh location, UN also has an online store for customers to browse and purchase products. They offer fast and reliable shipping, making it convenient for those looking to get their hands on the latest releases without having to visit the store in person.
Jaysse Lopez is the founder of Urban Necessities, a man who turned $20 into a $20 million business. In 2001, Lopez arrived in Las Vegas with just $20 USD. Using his determination and hard work, he successfully built a consignment business, starting with one pair of sneakers. His business grew and by 2014, he rebranded it as Urban Necessities and was able to secure a storefront location inside the Boulevard Mall in Las Vegas.
If you’re into streetwear and sneakers, Urban Necessities in Riyadh is definitely a store worth checking out.
