best place to buy shoes in Helsinki?
What kind of shoes? I like Kenkä-Marski. kenkamarski.fi/miesten-naist...
There is lots of shoe stores in town, many of them are chain shops.
Minna Parikka (Aleksanterinkatu 36) is a definite must if your out for Finnish killer heels or more practical shoes. Love 'em! Aleksi 13 (Aleksanterinkatu 13) has a huge variety of footwear, from cheap to expensive ones. Nilson shoes, located in the Galleria Esplanade has stylish and affordable shoes, all categories.
For very cheap footwear, go to DinSko (Mannerheimintie 20a). And the opposite: For the top notch ones - Louis Vuitton (Pohjoisesplanadi 35).
So, hope you find something in your taste. I wasn't quite sure of what type of shoes you like so these are all very different. Have a great journey in Hki!
You can either try the big shopping centers, for example Kamppi, Forum, Sokos, Galleria Esplanade and the huge department store Stockmann or just walk along shopping streets such as Mannerheimintie, Alexanterinkatu, Bulevardi, Fredrikinkatu and the Esplanade to see what they offer. But as EgoAmorMundi already said, there is everything from cheap chain stores and second hand shops to Louis Vuitton and exquisite Finnish design. Hope you'll find what you are looking for!
top end hi quality at maximum price, at esplanadi.
if you want them cheap, look for bargains at big department stores for example stockmann(.com) or sokos, aleksi 13 or whatever. there is plenty downtown
