So many shoes to choose from
According to the ‘How to Look like a Dane’ guide – a blog post by Copenhannah that went viral this summer – Danes have a total of three options of footwear. These include black converse, black Nike Free sneakers or black booties. So if you want to keep up with the Danish women, or devilishly defy them, here are some places to get the goods.
Though these small boutiques specialise mostly in jewellery, they carry their own line of feminine ballerina flats. Both locations have previously been old-fashioned sweet shops, and though the shelves are now lined with colourful shoes and jewellery, the cosy and dainty atmosphere of a chocolatier still exists. All the shoes are made in real leather and found in every colour of the rainbow. Anniel per Pico, a slightly more costly line, are shoes made for dancers and include an extra sole for a perfect fit.
If you’re looking for something fancy and have the cash to splash, then make your way to the recently opened Christian Louboutin boutique. The quintessential red-soled shoes may cost more than a month’s rent and pain your feet something fierce, but you know you’ll be the envy of every fashionista in the room … any room!
From 100kr Kawasaki sneaks to Lady Gaga-inspired stilts from Jeffrey Campbell, Dope has been a staple in every Danish girl’s shoe collection for the past decade.
This British high-street fashion chain may not sell the most original designs, but if you love Louboutin’s spiked loafers or Isabel Marant’s platform kicks, but can’t afford the fat price tag, you can find some affordable doppelgangers for a fraction of the price.
