Sole Searching: The 8 Best Stores for Shopping Women's Sneakers in Germany

Read our top picks for girls’ kicks.

With sweet sneaker drops steadily continuing, we’re obsessing over a whole load of new kicks, including the adidas Consortium KITH x Naked NMD CS2 and the spring-ready, lilac Reebok Club C 85. If, like us, your new year’s resolution is to up your sneaker collection, then you’re spoiled for choice.

As the nation that gave us iconic sportswear giants like adidas and PUMA, it’s no surprise that Germany comes out on top in the hunt for Europe’s best sneaker stores for women. For the next instalment of our “Sole Searching” series, we head over to Germany to get a better look at what the country has to offer. Read on to see a list of our favorite sneaker boutiques.

Overkill Women

A stalwart of the German sneaker scene, Overkill opened its dedicated women’s store a year ago in Berlin. With a huge range of kicks on offer, the retailer has everything from limited-edition ASICS packs and Reebok collaborations, to the adidas Tubulars and Nike’s premium sneakers. In addition, the shop is also home to womenswear from the likes of adidas, Nike and Alpha Industries. You can even find that coveted “Kiss My Airs” doormat here.

Address: Köpenicker Strasse 194, 10997 Berlin-Kreuzberg

BSTN

This minimalist-style store features an expertly curated lineup of sneakers. You won’t find common throngs of Vans in every pattern and color — instead the products are the finest in the game, hand-picked to fit the store’s vibe. Think the Nike Internationalist, the Reebok Question and the adidas Stan Smith BOOST in a metallic finish. If you’re looking for the freshest, most unique sneakers, BSTN is your best bet.

Address: Amalienstrasse 44, 80799 Munich

43einhalb

Fun fact: 43einhalb tranlates as 43 and a half. That being said, the store does not only have a limited size range. Conceived by two sneakerheads, Olli and Mischa, 43einhalb comprises of a digital magazine and two IRL stores, which stock everything from limited releases from YEEZY to the ASICS GEL-Lyte and the Saucony Shadow 5000. With an array of footwear, clothing and accessories all housed in an incredibly spacious and slick shop space, this retailer is not one to be missed.

Address: Stiftsstrasse 36, 60313 Frankfurt

Solebox

This futuristic sneaker store is home to the Solebot: a state-of-the-art robot that plucks the desired pair of kicks right off the shelf in front of you. As if that wasn’t enough reason for stopping by, the store itself stocks a stellar range of sneakers for women, from the Fenty PUMA sneaker boots to Filling Pieces‘ collection. With stores in Berlin and Munich, as well as other European cities like Vienna and Amsterdam, Solebox is definitely a must-visit shop for every sneakerhead.

Address: Nürnberger Strasse 14, 10789 Berlin

No74

Based in the ever-hip Mitte area of Berlin, No74 is an adidas concept store. Designed by the acclaimed duo Haw-lin Services, this sleek boutique is known just as much for being a cool event space as it is for the coveted sneakers it carries. Head over here to pick up some of the more hard-to-find adidas items from Three Stripes’ collaborations with Kanye West, Pharrell, Raf Simons, Stella McCartney and more.

Address: Torstrasse 74, 10119 Berlin

Kickz

With 11 outlets all over Germany, Kickz is one of the biggest players in the European sneaker game. It’s no surprise that the shop doesn’t slack when it comes to sneakers for women. Kickz’s huge offering includes the Nike Air Huarache Premium, the adidas EQT shoes, as well as women’s clothes and accessories from the likes of Stance and Stussy. It also has a consignment store in Berlin where sneakerheads are invited to buy and sell some of the rarest and most valuable kicks around.

Address: Torstrasse 86, 10119 Berlin

Asphalt Gold

Asphalt Gold launched in 2008 and has remained a key contender in the German sneaker scene since. Whether you’re on the lookout for Reebok’s new Club C Diamond pack, some retro Air Jordan’s or less common kicks from independent German sneaker label EKN, Asphalt Gold has got your covered.

Address: Friedensplatz 4, 64283 Darmstadt

The Good Will Out

Founded by Cologne-based sneaker aficionados Alex and Oliver (who also run the nearby N/GH store and the European Sneakermuseum), The Good Will Out is an unassuming treasure chest full of fresh sneakers. Often spotted with a bunch of eager sneakerheads camping out ahead of a new drop, TGWO boasts a stellar lineup of limited-edition and cult classics, including the NikeLab Blazer and Saucony shoes in nearly every colorway imaginable.

Address: Händelstrasse 41, 50674 Cologne
