de negen straatjes

De 9 Straatjes |The 9 Streets| is a collective name given to the nine cosy and picturesque shopping streets in the Amsterdam Canal Belt, connected by bridges. In these streets you’ll find a wide variety of shops, including interior design shops, and clothing designed by both upcoming and well-established brands.The area is filled with great bars, restaurants and coffee corners, and a new shop can pop up any week.

The Nine Streets area can easily be reached from behind the Spui or Dam square,and are situated between Singel and Prinsengracht. In most of the shops in this area you can ask for a map of de 'negen straatjes' that will make it easier for you to see the layout of the area.
Please note we are working on the site!

A complete list with my favourite locations in this area, more info and opening hours of the specific locations can be found in our Amsterdam city guide APP AMS NXT

Red Wing Shoes
The Red Wing store''s collection consists of a wide range of Red Wing Shoes, shoe maintenance items, belts, gloves, as well as other accessories. The store has an amazing interior that pays tribute to the rich history of the brand. The shoes are displayed on top of steel and antique glass show cases, which are filled with coal. 

The dark, concrete walls have been decorated with workman''s tools that date back to the days when Red Wing was a fledgling company. One wooden wall, which itself was made from materials from an old Amish water tower, is used to exhibit most of the accessories on offer. Definitely a must see.

The overall design concept of Velour springs out of a classic preppy look with traditional garments redesigned in a new stylish, yet effortless, way. This style has Swedish west coast influences and addresses curious individuals who have an interest in trends but, unlike the fashion slave, are reflective and make their own interpretation. They appreciate genuineness and are, by Velour, offered an alternative to the ordinary fashion brands through everyday icons such as cardigans, check shirts, parkas and trench coats.
