The perfect pair of shoes aren’t just made for walking (or running or climbing), they can really add that final pop to your outfit and tie everything together! Plus, whether you opt for designer heels or some chunky Mary Janes also shows off a little bit of your personality.

We’re sure you love your sporty sneakers — but what about other your other footwear? Here are our favourite Hong Kong shoe shops.
