Are you a sneakerhead like me? Do you like collecting them? Then this article may be of interest! Not long ago I discovered a passion for sneakers, so I started collecting them. I’ll show you my favorite stores where I’ll buy my pairs. In these stores, there are not only sneakers but also collections of accessories or clothing.
1. Eclectic Store
5 minutes from the school is the first shop I’m going to tell you about. The Arts Sneakers or the Eclectic Store. I bought two pairs of Air Jordans there, 1 month ago. The Jordan 1 mid carbon fiber (220 euro) and the Nike Dunk High Game Royal (290 euro). I discovered this store through a friend. Since then, I’ve never been tired of it. You can find everything there, like the Mcdonald collection or the famous Travis Scott collection. The Air Jordan 1 High OG TS SP ‘ Travis Scott which costs around 6,000 euro and the Nike SB Dunk Low Travis Scott which costs around 2,000 euro. As I said, lots of famous shoes are there to be sold, they have lots of rare and unique products. If you like sneakers and candles, I recommend this shop because they sell candles in the shape of sneakers. It’s a new concept that works quite well.

2. Drip Drop
A little further from the Arts Sneakers is the Drip Drop. This one was created by three friends. This is the store where I bought most of my shoes, like the Air Jordan 1 mid turf orange (190 euro), Air Jordan 1 mid signal blue (200 euro), Nike dunk high panda (210 euro), and the Dunk Low Archeo Pink (210 euro). There are all kinds of pairs, you can even find Balenciaga, New Balance, Supreme, Yeezy, and more brands like this. It’s a small store and very chilly. They put on good music and are very welcoming. It’s also a resell store, you can come and sell your shoes there, they will resell it. When I’m inside I want to come out with everything, this is the reason why I shop compulsively most of the time. The next pair that I am going to buy in this store are the Jordan 4 Lightning and The Shimmer.

Not so far from the Drip Drop, we find the SixSixSix. It’s also a small store with all kinds of shoes. The people who work there are super welcoming. I bought a pair of shoes including the Air Jordan 1 Mid Metallic Orange to resell it. Indeed, we can bring our pairs of shoes never worn with the ticket to resell for more expensive. I also bought another pair of shoes there, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High Court Purple at 190 euro. The last time I went there was to take pictures and I fell in love with a Trapstar brand jacket. Trapstar is slowly becoming fashionable, it’s basically a bumper jacket. This is a jacket that I would like to buy for next winter.

Opening hours: Everyday except Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Solebox is one of my stores where I go all the time when I’m in Brussels, it’s my obligatory passage. The store is not far from La Bourse. The first pair I bought there was the Converse Stop Motion with the big platforms. I took them in black and beige which cost each 120 euro. It’s a pair that few people like but that I find extraordinary. The pair is not really common; it has a special design. I will put a picture so you can see it and have your own opinion. Solebox is not a resale store; they sell the pairs at their normal prices. On the other hand, other stores are all reselling stores, where the shoes are resold at a higher price. The customer will find exclusive sneakers such as Jordans, Bapesta, Converse, etc in this shop. They opted for an original bank decor where you can find counters, safes, and surveillance cameras. Each shop has its own decor. This is the brand’s fifth European point of sale.
