Up There’s founders echo the mentality of exclusiveness. Up There reflects their love for sneakers and footwear combined with quality, and carefully curated products that can’t be found anywhere else. Up There’s flagship store located at 208 Little Collins St is a destination for the underground cool of limited editions and hard to find labels.
