The 5 best shoe shops in Antwerp

1) Zappa

Zappa dates from the days when Kammenstraat was an edgy fashion street. One of the last independent stores in the neighbourhood, its owners still like to turn heads with their quirky window displays. You find colourful and sometimes bizarre footwear by British, Spanish and Portuguese brands, as well as socks and bags to match.
