Sparks Active

Originally from Myanmar, Sparks Active is a brand that operates online internationally and aims to provide high-quality activewear that not only looks good and performs well but is also affordable. Plus, there’s a charitable element as customers can choose to support one of the three charities with every purchase. These organisations include NGO Clean Yangon which plants trees in Myanmar, a small non-profit called Changing Stories which trains teachers in remote areas of Nepal, and Run, a charity that organises yoga and hiking for refugees in Hong Kong to restore mental and physical wellness. Sparks Active offers supportive sports bras, tanks and buttery soft leggings in a broad range of sizes with sweat-wicking function and four-way stretchability. They also recently launched their new pocket leggings ($355) and luxe-rib seamless set ($433),  which are both great-looking activewear additions.

Shopping Shoes Wan Chai

This Hong Kong-based footwear brand offers stylish, comfortable shoes for everyday athletes. Since launching in 2017, Lane Eight offers a line of stylish kicks that are great to walk, run, workout, and even lounge in. What's more, their Trainer AD 1 is a sustainable shoe that features an algae-based midsole and a recycled plastic upper with vegan suede reinforcements. This basically means that each pair ends up using 11 recycled single-use plastic bottles. They also recently came out with a gorgeous lilac dream colourway and a neutral colour of dusty taupe (both $750), which will go with any outfit and are already in my shopping cart.

Pure Apparel

Yoga continues to be a popular workout in Hong Kong, with many limbering up for classes in studios, and yogis can even be seen stretching in parks these days. So there’s all the more reason to stock up on workout apparel that feels as good as it looks. Local fitness chain Pure Yoga has its own in-house apparel store, Pure Apparel, which offers yogis and gym bunnies alike breathable, fashionable and functional outfits along with accessories. Plus, Pure members can enjoy discounts on purchases, too.

Foot Locker

Shopping Tsim Sha Tsui

The hugely popular US sportswear and footwear chain store unveiled Hong Kong’s first flagship store in Tsim Sha Tsui in 2018. Taking up three storeys of space, Foot Locker offers a premium selection of sneakers and apparel, including the widest Nike Air Max Plus selection in town, all under one roof. The megastore is also home to the House of Hoops concept shop, which celebrates basketball culture and top-of-the-line sneakers from Nike. If you’re looking for a spacious shop to take your time and try out different kicks, make a beeline for Foot Locker.

Shopping Causeway Bay

If you’re wondering why everyone seems to be wearing Lululemon these days, it’s likely to be because their stylish collection of tops, leggings, sports bras, and accessories is so covetable. They are functional enough for the gym yet fashionable enough to wear outside. But what really wins over crowds is the way the activewear helps to shape and hug the curves of our bodies. They update their collections regularly, and the new quick-drying Everlux and mesh cropped tank ($480) in dark terracotta is best paired with their Wunder Train high-rise leggings ($880) in a striking multi-colour print.

Though not necessarily cheaper than the standard shops, you’re guaranteed to find something just by the sheer diversity here.
