In a time where sneakers form an integral part of Fashion and identity, you can find pretty much any model, colour and style of shoe you could think of. With some iconic collaborations between athletes, artists and rappers and some of the oldest and most established brands in the sneakersphere, the choices are endless. So where can you find a shop which always seems to select the best models out there? From classic sneakers, to more outgoing models, and also more formal shoes like Sebago? Well, DUKE has the best of all worlds.
This compact little shop uses every inch of its floor to the fullest, displaying some of the coolest sneakers and shoes on the market. The Owner has a knack for colours and layouts, and you can tell. When you walk into DUKE, the first thing you notice is the vibrant colours and the highly creative way the shoes and clothes are showcased and displayed. You’re surrounded by kicks from Reebok, Nike, Adidas, to Sebago, Clarks and many more. It’s quite easy to go there and lose track of time, despite it’s size, you could easily spend three-quarter’s of an hour looking at everything on show. Situated just in front of Conde Duque, Duke has been providing Madrid with style since 2007.
Whether you’re looking for shoes, clothes and accessories for a Friday Night of socialising, or even a Weekday of working, this is the place where you can fill your sneaker and shoe needs. Duke also has some very cool back packs, jackets, t-shirts and other quirky accessories, notably some very funky and colourful socks, so you could literally buy a whole outfit there. You should follow the Instagram page @DUKE as they upload nearly daily posts showcasing the new arrivals, so you just might see that special pair that will make you want to visit this absolute gem of a shop.
