  1. Best sneaker stores in Amsterdam: Sunika

Searching for a unique sneaker place? Then Sunika is where you have to be.
Sunika is the place in Amsterdam for your dose of Japanese couture. What’s in a name, because “sunika” is simply Japanese for “sneaker”. In this fairly small shop on Bilderdijkstraat you will find something different than Air Max 1s and Yeezy’s. Sunika is known for their extensive range of more unconventional brands, such as Karhu and Saucon.

Where? Bilderdijkstraat 102 HS

The SoleBox laboratory on the Nieuwezijdese Voorburgwal is actually a must-visit for every sneaker enthusiast. Think test tubes, microscopes and personnel in white hazard suites. What completes it all: the white smoke hanging at the top of the lab. Solebox is known anyway for its beautiful shops in Berlin, Vienna and Brussels, but the Amsterdam store is truly unique. During the opening of this store some enthusiastics stayed in front of the door for 6 days for this exclusive store. Our advice? Go visit it!

  1. ETQ

This is a modern and minimalist clothing and sneaker shop that you must have visited. The look of this store continues in the designs of the sneakers – or vice versa. In the line of Filling Pieces and Unrecorded, ETQ is one of the favorite high-end sneaker brands. It is all pricey: the average shoe goes for 250 euros on the designer counter. But: if you are near the Rembrandtplein you cannot skip this store.
