The black wooden storefront of Baskèts has a classic charm and an authentic feel and the huge glass windows open onto an interior that seems to go on forever. With good vibes, cool tunes and the softly muted scent of fragranced candles Baskèts serves more than just the sneaker freak, it is also a connoisseur of good honest style.
Brands on sale include Scandinavian style maestros Norse Project, Ontour, Samsoe & Samsoe, Vans x Kenzo, Filling Pieces, Nike and a fantastic collection of Gourmet sneakers in leaf camouflage and sting ray patterns.
Getting attention and followers from all over the world ensures their selection stays fresh and dynamic. New deliveries can be checked out on Instagram at #Basketsamsterdam, making it easy to plan when to jump on new trends, such as ETQ- Amsterdam, who recently launched a limited edition, all black sneakers collection to much hype, creating queues around the block!
Baskèts really does deliver a touch of exclusivity, original colours, abstract patterns, unusual materials and a mix of ‘Nu Skool’ charm. Enjoy!
