The Remix team picks their fave kicks from HYPE DC Sylvia Park

These are the coolest kicks from the new HYPE DC store in Sylvia Park as chosen by the Remix Team...

The newest store to arrive to Sylvia Park's shopping precinct is HYPE DC's third store in Auckland. Offering premium, limited and exclusive footwear, it's the ultimate destination for sneaker fiends. The Remix team rock sneakers on the daily and while our combined collection alone could likely open a fourth HYPE DC store, there's always room for one.more.pair.

Here's the coveted HYPE DC kicks on the Remix Team's wishlists...

Editor Amber can't go past a pair of classic Nikes that give her support with a bit of swag... Her pick is the Air Max Up with a delightful pop of colour on an otherwise nice and neutral white sneaker.

"I can see myself rocking these bad boys with black bike shorts and a crisp oversized white shirt for busy days on photoshoots. Gotta be comfy when I'm on my feet all day..." - Amber Baker



Business Development Manager Jono is a huge Veja fan so naturally next on his hitlist is the Veja Esplar.

"Absolutely loooove Veja as a brand and what they stand for! I'm now onto my second pair of V-10's which I thrash, but they somehow still look as good as new. The Esplar's are on my Xmas wishlist as I love the simple timeless aesthetic." - Jono Moss

Editorial Assistant Portia is a summer girl through and through, so it's no surprise her pick is the Birkenstock Arizona Sandal.

"My special bond with Birks’ started when I first wore my pair in Rome during a 40 degree heatwave and I didn’t take them off for the next four months while traveling. They are so comfortable, durable and absolutely made for walking! That said, they are the ultimate off-duty slide and look chic paired with nearly everything."


Founder and Owner Tim loves the finer things in life, so he opts for the premium selection available at HYPE DC with the R.M. Williams Comfort Craftsman boots.

"I love well-made boots that I can thrash and they'll still stay in great condition, so these are perfect for me!" - Tim Phin


Content Producer Jiwoo collects white sneakers... She's got her eye on the '80s esque ZX 2K BOOST by adidas Originals which is a blend of heritage and modern tech.

"I love anything white when it comes to sneakers! So versatile, whether it's paired with gym clothes or when you're going out, just make sure to keep them white!" - Jiwoo Lee


 Intern Cameo is obsessed with the exclusive Nike women's Air Max Verona. In soft hues of white and "Barely Rose" it was inspired by the first Air Max ever designed for women.

"HOW cute are these... I need them in pink, of course..." - Cameo Turner 


It's no surprise the kings of cool kicks now have a store in the country's largest shopping centre. They're slowly taking over the city and we're not complaining... Not only do the staff go above and beyond to help every customer (we have experienced this firsthand), but the Sylvia Park store itself is a thing of beauty. Shoe-lined walls meet floor to ceiling mirrors while larger than life digital screens immerse you into all things HYPE...

And you'll have no trouble finding space to try on the 10+ pairs you're bound to fall in love, because the store is their largest one yet.
