I love living in Amsterdam for several reasons. For instance, there are a lot of individual and original shops.This is particularly the case when it comes to kids clothing. I have already been thinking for a while about writing up my favorite stores so with having a brand new one that just opened in my neighborhood, I took this as a sign to get things going!
Being located on Czaar Peterstraat in the East of Amsterdam, Zippy’s Kinderschoenen is a cute little boutique specialised in high quality and fashionable kids shoes. Freshly opened in July this year, the shop with the bird logo offers selected items by quality labels such as Manuela de Juan, Eli, Ocra, Pom d’Api and Easy Peasy but also fashion and lifestyle brands like Emile et Ida and Clark’s. Beside the cute shoes, I have fallen in love with the decor of the store. The owner, Zippy Klumperbeek, is not only a lovely person and real specialist when it comes to kids shoes but she has also put a lot of attention to details; making Zippy’s both a kids and parent friendly location (btw, she listens to great music, too!).
I can’t wait for Thiago to walk. According to Zippy, I shouldn’t buy shoes before this milestone. Until then, I’ll follow the yellow foot prints on the street that lead the way to Zippy’s and content myself with window shopping 😉
