As a leading sports retailer in the UK, Sports Direct has established its stores in Malaysia, their first direct investment into Asia. The stores in Malaysia offers a wide range of sportswear, footwear and sports equipment from various global leading brands such as underarmour, adidas, Nike and karrimor.
What is enticing about this sports store is that they offer these items at wholesale price which are relatively cheaper.
One of such outlet can be found in KSL City Mall, a shopping centre that is only 20mins ride away from JB Sentral.
The exchange rate currently at time of posting is at SGD : Ringgit, 1 : 3.03.
WHAT THEY OFFER:
To the right side of the store is the footwear section, which contains many male running and training shoes. On the right are female footwear sections.
$50sgd for a pair of Nike running shoes! 😁👍
$46 sgd for Adidas shoes?! 😎 Anyone?
We manage to get the blue underarmour training shoes (1st picture, btm left corner) for just $60! The exact same model can also be found in local shop for $120! 😱 Worth it? That’s for you to decide! 😎
- Underarmour clothes
You got to be kidding?! $39 for underarmour training attire. That’s so cheap! 😲
Wide variety of cheap underarmour shirts, ranging from compression to loose training gear
Running kit can also be found for as low as $10.
- Training Equipments
Lifters! There is a section especially for you all! Most of the equipments are going at 50% off regular price. I wanted to get a 25kg barbell for $60. However, the trip back Singapore will be torturous😞! BUT, I manage to get a Lonsdale leather support belt for just $33sgd! Hehe😁
We don’t hike, so we are not very familiar with the prices. However, we saw a few basic hiking bags that cost about $60-$70sgd.
