In the beautiful, eclectic mess of Mong Kok, you will discover Fa Yuen Street. Better known as Sneaker Street, it is on this road where you’ll find all sporting-related footwear, including football/rugby boots.
However, just like Mong Kok itself, it is very easy to get lost in all the bustling chaos. Hopefully, this article will make your life a little easier.
Dotted abundantly around Fa Yuen Street are small stores all owned by the same company: Sportshouse, emblazoned with large Nike ticks or with the iconic Adidas typography.
At first glance, they deceivingly look like the authentic stores. Nonetheless, Sportshouse offers a comprehensive range of athletic wear at modest prices. If you’re looking for a cheap pair of running or possibly basketball shoes, this is your best bet.
Admittedly, all the Sportshouses have a very limited selection of football boots. You'll most likely find boots to your satisfaction in the football-specific Adidas and Nike stores, both located in Sneaker Street. The Adidas Football store has moved around a bit, but can now be found on 70 Fa Yuen Street. On the other hand, the Nike Football store is located in the chic and refined shopping mall named The Forest.
If, for whatever reason, you are still not able to find your desired football boots, then head down to Elevens Football. Situated in 19 Haven Street, Causeway Bay, Elevens Football offers a wide selection of the most up-to-date quality football boots.
More importantly, Elevens Football is the only Hong Kong based retailer that offers instant in-store product personalisation. If you are willing to sacrifice a wad of cash for excellent football equipment, then this is definitely the place to go.
