Are you looking for timeless and qualitative shoes? Then you’ve come to the right place at Zwartjes van 1883! This shoe shop for men is located in the Utrechtsestraat in Amsterdam City Centre, one of the most popular areas in Amsterdam. Zwartjes van 1883 also has a store for men and women’s shoes in Amsterdam South. More information about this shop can be found here. The shoes are just like their design, timeless and sustainable. You would not be the first client that still walks in a pair of shoes from Zwartjes van 1883 after 20 years! The shop also arranges shoe repairs, by local shoemakers or the original shoe factory, if they need a refurbishment.

Because of the convenient location in the shopping centre you can swing by their store to try on shoes, be advised and get information about the shoes and their origin. You can feel the passion of the already fourth generation owners of family Sprangers, who took over the shop from Mister Zwartjes in 1917.

Most of their shoes are produced in Europe. They also have shoes for every occasion. Is there a need for a shoe that does not get mass produced? Then they replenish their assortment with sustainable models that are made exclusively on their demand, or they produce them themselves with small scale producers as their housebrand.
