Coccodrillo Men

Coccodrillo Men (The Epic Guide - Antwerp)

Coccodrillo is an institution in the shoe-world, founded in 1984 and since called ‘best shoe shop in the world’ by none other then the New York Times. Who are we to disagree… More recently, founders Geert Bruloot & Eddy Michiels gave in to the requests of their male shoppers to give them a separate space and opened this shop right in front of the original store (now housing the women’s collection) in the Schuttershofstraat.

The design of the shop is from the hand of celebrated -and eccentric- interior designer Gert Voorjans (who’s also responsible for the look of the Dries Van Noten flagship stores around the world, as well as the Essentiel stores), who mixed art-déco detailing and geometric shapes with the atmosphere of an 30′s salon in Buenos Aires. Combine this with a masculine material palette of black metal and wood, and you get a temple for male shoe enthusiasts, offering the finest selection of shoes by names like Dior, Lanvin, Saint Laurent Paris, Prada, Raf Simons, as well as British label Church’s, with the shoes beautifully presented on detailed pedestals.

All this comes most certainly at a price, but if you’re in the market for a very nice pair of men shoes, this is the place where you’ll get the full experience!
