34 Dashilar Jie
This ‘Beijing Time Honored Brand’ was founded in 1853 during the Qing Dynasty, and is one of China’s oldest handmade shoe companies. Its formal boots were once worn by officials in Imperial China, and more recently the casual canvas slippers (from 300RMB) have been sported by everyone from Mao Zedong to Jackie Chan. Making the handmade shoes involves nearly 100 steps, but the intricate process makes them both durable and light; branches are across the city, but head to the brand’s Dashilar outlet to find master craftsmen still making shoes by hand.
