Jan Jansen Shoes
Exhibition & Factory Store
The world-reknowned shoe designer Jan Jansen has built up an enormous oeuvre from the past 45 years, part of which can now be seen in Amsterdam.
This exhibition, giving an overview of his work, is complemented by the Jan Jansen Factory Store. At this experimental shoe factory on location it's possible to choose from a variety of models and colours and have a pair made to the 'last' (the solid form around which a shoe is moulded), and outsole of your choice. A world first!
Opening by Frank van der Schoor, curator of Museum Het Valkhof and initiator of the exhibition 'Jan Jansen en Swip Solk, twee meesterontwerpers.'
Note there will be Q&A sessions with Jan Jansen on Sunday 20 + 27 September (13:30-14:30). NB: The Factory Store is only open on the weekend. (Closed Tue 22 Sept)
