- 8FIVE2SHOP: Hong Kong’s official skateshop....8FIVE2SHOP: Hong Kong’s official skateshop.
Feeling the void for proper skateboard hard goods and high-end street fashion in Hong Kong, Julius Brian Siswojo opened 8FIVE2SHOP in 1999 first as a distribution company and later as a shop for the public. Through this, Brian was able to introduce many internationally popular brands for the first time to Hong Kong.
Known for it’s authenticity, clean image, and it’s great location in the heart of Hong Kong’s shopping area, 8FIVE2SHOP quickly gained popularity not only among the local media but, worldwide.
Many of the top skateboarders have passed through this shop such as Eric Koston, Tim O’Connor, Brian Wenning, Stefan Janoski, Pat Duffy, Jamie Thomas, and many famous street artists such as Haze, Futura, José Parlá, Rostarr, Pushead, etc…
8FIVE2SHOP continues to be mentioned in worldwide media such as Evilmonito.com, Skateboarder Magazine, Skateboard Mag, 411 video magazine, Lodown magazine, Complex, Sneaker Freaker, Streetwear International, Street Jack (Japan), Ollie (Japan), etc…
Most importantly 8FIVE2SHOP prides itself on our knowledgeable staff, authenticity, and our role in the evolution of street culture in Hong Kong. We are more than just a shop we represent Hong Kong.
The founder: Julius Brian Siswojo started skateboarding in 1988 and since then, it’s been an integral part of his lifestyle in Hong Kong.
