Top sports stores in Singapore for stylish workout gear

[Updated Jul 22, 2016] Over the past month, we’ve seen a fair share of pop-up yogas and with the slew of runs happening later this year, there’s no reason you shouldn’t look glam while you break a sweat. Here are the stores to check out.

Adidas Originals Store

Don’t come here for Adidas’ function-oriented sportswear (you’ll probably have better luck with the brand’s Performance stores). A mecca for sporty-chic streetwear under the Adidas Originals label, this attention-grabbing boutique packs a colorful punch, thanks to its bold-hued, fashion-forward collections of apparels and footwear. Some of these are collaborative pieces with fashion labels like Bedwin & The Heartbreakers, Jeremy Scott and Opening Ceremony. Pacific Plaza, 9 Scotts Rd., #01-09/12. 6238-6388. Opens daily 11am-9.30pm.


Sports fanatics can check out Decathlon, which opened at Technopark@Chai Chee earlier this year. The 35,000 sq. ft store has 95,000 different types of equipment, clothing and footwear for more than 50 spots, and prides itself on having the largest collection of sporting goods in Southeast Asia. There are areas for customers to try out sportswear and equipment, like cycling, trampolining, table tennis and golf. 750A Chai Chee Rd., #01-01. 6225-4773. Opens daily 9am-10pm.


Although more well-known for their fast fashion and accessories, H&M also has a pretty decent range of sportswear, with more of the fun patterns and bright colors you see in the rest of their clothes. Their Sports Hub outlet has a dedicated section for sportswear, stocking lots of basics like leggings, running shorts, sports bras and tank tops. Most of these basics are a total steal at under $50, but they also have more expensive, high-performance pieces with wicking material. Kallang Wave, 1 Stadium Place, #01-74/78, 6702-7170. Opens daily 10am-10pm.

Lorna Jane

This Australian fitness and fashion brand recently opened their first showroom in Singapore in the trendy Club Street, retailing the latest collections in women’s activewear. They’re also looking to produce 70-100 styles in their monthly collections, so you can expect to be spoilt for choices with their range of flattering tights and other activewear. 4 Ann Siang Hill, #01-01, 6221-8641. Opens Mon-Fri 12-7pm.

Lululemon Athletica

Love it or hate it, cult yoga wear brand Lululemon’s hotly anticipated store has set up shop at Ion Orchard—the 299th store worldwide, but the first-ever store in Asia. Leggings, running shorts, sports bras and singlets dominate the racks, with a smaller range of accessories like sports bags, sweat bands and yoga mats. While not completely breaking the sportswear mold, the clothes themselves are pretty cool with streamlined design and fun patterns. ION Orchard, 2 Orchard Turn, #B1-11. 6334-1895. Opens daily 10am-10pm.

New Balance

Although perhaps not as cool as some of its competitors, New Balance still has its fans and is starting to push more design-forward kicks, like their recent reflective sneakers for night runners. The concept store at Bugis Junction has a gritty, underground gym vibe, and carries both the lifestyle MadebyNB range and its top-notch, high-performance running shoes. Bugis Junction, 200 Victoria Street, #02-10. 6337-0918. Open daily 11am-9:30pm.


Have you seen how many fashionistas have been donning those trendy Nike kicks? Arguably Nike’s flashiest boutique in Singapore, the huge Shaw outlet offers a comprehensive range of cutting-edge running gear, including the much-raved Free Fly knit trainers and the Nike+ Sportband, a training device that also helps the user connect with the local (and global) community of runners. Shaw Lido, 350 Orchard Rd., #01-07/11. 6238-0912. Opens daily 11am-9pm.

Royal Sporting House

With branches literally all over the island, Royal Sporting House isn’t super stylish but it sure is convenient if you need to pick something up in a hurry. They carry top international sports brands like Reebok, Speedo, Nautica, Sperry Top-Sider and Wilson, and if you’re willing to dig through the more workaday items that dominate the stores you just might come across something more interesting. Plus, they also stock equipment like goggles, rackets and balls (you know, for people who actually play sports). JEM, 50 Jurong Gateway Rd., #03-37/39. 6734-7419. Opens Sun-Thu 11am-9pm, Fri & Sat 11am-10pm

Touch the Toes

This local label occupies a cozy spot on the second floor of a shophouse in Arab Street, and stock a gorgeous range of eco-friendly yoga and pilates gear. Everything in their store uses only organic cotton, bamboo blends or recycled and upcycled materials and are sustainably produced too. Think yoga bottoms in loud digital prints and sports bra with cute tie-dye designs. 31 Arab St. 6396-5025. Opens Mon-Fri 12-8pm, Sat & Sun 1-7pm.

Under Armour

This beloved American sports label has hit our shores and it’s the brand’s first Southeast Asian outpost too. While the range stocked at Orchard Road isn’t as extensive as what you’d find on the website, there’s still a decent selection of hip gym gear in an array of colors. You’ll also find the brand’s staples like UA Tech and HeatGear tees, compression wear, shoes and other accessories ($12 upwards). The average shirt costs just $35, considerably less than what you’ll have to fork out at rival stores. Orchard Gateway, 277 Orchard Rd., #B1-05. 6702-4918. Opens daily 11am-10pm.
