The 5 best shoe shops in Antwerp

1) Coccodrillo

Antwerp barely registered on the fashion radar when Geert Bruloot and Eddy Michiels opened Coccodrillo in 1984. It quickly became known as one of the best shoe shops in Europe. They moved its location in 2017 into a large minimalist interior on two floors designed by Glenn Sestig. Here you find shoes by luxury brands displayed on stands like unique works of art.
