Planning on doing some shopping while traveling? Let’s see a top 5 sneaker stores you should not miss out if you’re looking to purchase new kicks in Europe.
This store is a real paradise for all sneakers lovers and this Berlin shop even won an award: in an internet poll, Solebox was voted among the five best sneaker shops in the world! Definitely a gem for sneaker fans so if you’re ever in Berlin, feel free to stop by.
London is without a doubt the UK’s sneaker-culture capital, and at the beating heart of it is Soho institution Footpatrol.
Residing on Berwick Street in the city’s Soho, this small store has been responsible for arming the city’s footwear fiends with rare finds and limited releases since 2010. It’s also no stranger to big-name collaborations, having joined forces for special edition shoes with everyone from Reebok to Givenchy. A must-see spot in London for sneaker fans and not only.
3. No74 Berlin
Again, a Berlin shop that makes its way on our list. Exclusive brands you won’t find in every shop, in addition all popular Adidas products such as the Stella McCartney Adidas collection, original Adidas sneakers or limited editions – this is what customers can expect at No74 Berlin. Definitely drop by if you’re in Berlin.
Sneakersnstuff may have started life in Sweden, but it’s the London branch that has cemented its reputation as a vital part of the sneaker scene.
It’s a name that every enthusiast worth their salt will recognise as one of the oldest and most respected in the game. Plus, even if you can’t get down to the hipster man bun Mecca of Shoreditch to check it out in the flesh, you can just order online from the SNS website. So, if you’re passing by in London or Sweden, make sure that you reward Sneakersnstuff with a visit.
5. Foot District, Barcelona
Founded in Madrid, Foot District’s Barcelona outpost may not be the first, but it’s certainly the most visually striking.
Situated on the ground floor of a century-old Spanish building, this is a sneaker store with character. The latest footwear collaborations and a tightly curated selection of clothing sit against a backdrop of exposed brickwork, timber beams and marble floors. If you were looking for an excuse to book a flight to Barca, this is about as good as it gets.
