Typically when one thinks of Berlin, it’s the nightlife, subversive culture, history, and maybe doner that first comes to mind. But for better or worse, Berlin is developing staggeringly fast and these days people are just as likely to visit for the food scene and shopping opportunities as they are a trip to Berghain.

Sneaker culture, now a global phenomenon, is as much a part of Berlin’s fashion scene as it is any other cities’. However, Berlin fashion is uniquely defined by the city’s laidback attitude, world-renowned club culture, and maverick approach to life — traits that have made it highly desirable to free-spirited young people. Therefore a trip to one of Berlin’s many sneaker stores can easily lead to copping some experimental garms at the same time.

For those unaware, Highsnobiety’s head office is in fact located in Berlin, so we know a thing or two about the city. And when it comes to footwear stores, no pair is more informed than our Commerce Content Curator and Berlin-native Nigel Minani and Footwear Editor Chris Danforth. As part of our City Experiences series with AmEx, they’ve curated a list of Berlin’s must-visit sneaker locations. Our guide includes everything from Kreuzberg’s best independent retailers to the Berlin branches of Europe’s most respected footwear stores.

Check out our video hosted by Nigel Minani and Chris Danforth above and then peep the full list below. For more, visit our City Experiences hub to see more of Berlin, London, and New York through our lens.
