Stripes Korea

Seongsu-dong, in central Seoul, is a historically semi-industrial district well known for its handmade shoe street. Though the shoes here are slightly more expensive than you can get at the mall or a generic shoe store, the quality, attention to detail and the history might just be worth spending a little extra for a unique pair. And even if you’re not on the market for a new pair of kicks, this district offers plenty of restaurants, pubs and shops to spend some time exploring.
