Are you planning on visiting Florence soon? And do you need some inspiration on where to get your next sneakers? These are some great stores to expand you sneaker collection and maybe even find that limited pair you were hoping for.
SOTF is one of the most aesthetically pleasing sneaker stores in the historic city of Florence. The store name is an acronym for Store of the Future, matching its futuristic concept of mainly working with Ipads instead of sales assistants. The Ipads allow costumers to select sneakers, check the stock and make a purchase. The use of metal displays, mirrors, marble, and velvet gold create a great harmony between the aesthetics of the city and the modern concept behind the store. The store stocks everything from adidas Originals to Common Projects and is a definite must-see.
