More than just shoes. We want to make a difference. Not only in and with the shoes but also by offering accessories for the man with character. By character we mean the man who dares to distinguish himself from the “grey” mass.
At 98% of all shoes you will find a matching belt. In addition, you can have matching mac buttons and bows made. We have our own perfume line with two distinctive fragrances, a handsome watch line in ‘new vintage’ style and beautiful leather weekend bags.
We don’t want to call it a mancave and neither do Valhalla for men, but we often hear the term “Candystore” falling.
To be amazed
Our shoes are made in small editions of up to 15 pairs. We are often exclusive distributors of various brands or because of the special character of our shop we have models that other shoe shops do not dare to buy.
Our shoes are mainly made by hand within the European Union.

Chris Vos :
Born middle in a family of 5 in the Brabant Dongen, located in the Dutch Brabant.
More specifically between Tilburg, Breda and Oosterhout. At that time, Dongen was part of the Langstraat. An elongated ribbon of villages where almost exclusively the shoe industry existed.
Interest in fashion, clothing and shoes from an early age. My father and several of his brothers were shoemakers and mastered the craft from A to Z. After the Havo and numerous evening courses – including a three-year textile course, I started working in the better fashion shops. My first work address was very important because I learned the trade there from a master tailor who actually made tailor-made costumes in his studio.
With a huge experience in styling, high-quality professional knowledge and innate talent, I started a shoe store in Bruges 5 years ago.
My motivation is to make a difference in an increasingly flattened retail landscape in which the large chains are swaying.
I want to continuously reinvent myself and continue to develop my creativity. That is why I like to work with other creative people so that we can inspire each other. They also get a platform with me.
The basis of my concept is always to provide a colorful and varied collection. Constructive in price but always qualitative. Colorful yet classy and original.
To guarantee the originality I made my own designs 4 years ago. I buy the materials and get started. I am pleased that these designs are also very popular with my customers.
