I’ve been shopping for shoes for about a year now. Shoe shopping is a serious affair. A pair of decent shoes can last you many many years and they should look better the more you wear them. It’s a real pity some people see shoes as seasonal items these days.
On my Bangkok shopping list was a vintage leather shop, (UN) FASHION vintage collection. It is located at Ekkamai 10, within a trendy neighbourhood populated by the young and hip in Bangkok. The area is also filled with Japanese restaurants because of the Japanese expatriates living there. Needless to say, some of the boutiques have adopted the Japanese look and feel for their shop ambience and it was definitely a refreshing and unexpected experience for me. I enjoyed the area thoroughly. In the evening, the place transformed into a vibrant night scene with cool pubs and bars, no different from Lan Kwai Fong area in Hong Kong.

The shop also carries a nice range of handbags, wallets and other small leather goods but I suspect you have to be a regular for them to bring out the good stuff. Nonetheless, it’s definitely a place worth visiting in Bangkok.
