About Shoes & Shirts

Shoes & Shirts has occupied a special place in Maastricht’s refined Stokstraat quarter for almost 30 years. The two unique shops distinguish themselves by the high quality and exclusiveness of their products and all our products can also be shopped online. Shoes & Shirts carries a collection of the world’s most high-end shoemakers for men and women and the finest collection of shirts and luxury accessories to complete every gentleman’s wardrobe.

If you are looking for high quality shoes in a cosmopolitan style that is not subject to fickle trends our brick and mortar store is the place for you to be. As we appreciate that not everyone can make the trip to Maastricht our webshop forms an excellent alternative for those wanting to surround themselves with high-end footwear, quality shirts and luxurious accessories. Famous shoemakers from English and American soil as well as small artisan shoemaker ateliers from Italy and France are well represented here. 

In addition to shoes you will be able to find shirts at our store. Each season we select beautiful fabrics for the shirts of our own label’s ready-to-wear slim fit and classic collection. In addition we also offer a wide range of shirts from Ign. Joseph in more flamboyant fabrics. To make your choice more personal we offer a comprehensive programme where your shirt can be made to measure and cut by hand especially for you. For this select programme we would like to welcome you in our shop for a personal consultation.

To complete the classic men's wardrobe Shoes & Shirts carries a wide range of leather goods and accessories. Think of functional and aesthetically pleasing luggage commodities, hand-crafted briefcases from Italy and England, wallets in various convenient sizes made from the most exclusive leathers, hats and gloves of English descent, sophisticated perfumes, toiletries, and numerous other luxury accessories.

Upon entering our shops in Maastricht the unmistakable aroma of leather will greet you with a scented smile and we will strive to provide you with a great professionalism of service. After all, we understand as no others that our products require special service, attention and explanation. Contact our experienced advisors for personal service and advice and we are sure that they can provide you with a satisfying answer.

Founding story

Born into a family of shoemakers, with a three generations of experience, Peter van den Eertwegh launched a new concept in the field of shoe service and retailing in 1988: Shoes & Shirts. The name says it all; shoes and shirts for men with highest standards of quality, in all details. In 2012 his second shop opened with exclusive and high-end accessories.
As of september 2017 Shoes & Shirts has started to carry a nice collection of ladies' footwear. When it comes to the top-segment, in contrast to men's shoes, ladies normally have to deal with collections that are very fashion-inspired, and therefore not made or meant to last long. In line with the philosophy that we follow with all our other products, the items in this ladies' collection have been cherry-picked with elegance and durability in mind.


The experience and contacts acquired during his international work as a purchaser and consultant have given him the knowledge and base to form the core of the original selection of manufacturers and ateliers with whom Shoes & Shirts cooperates, since the very beginning, and with many of them still today.  

Only the top products from these manufacturers constitute the wide range of products that you can find at Shoes & Shirts, with quality as the basis of still largely handcrafted products.

Peter's son, Jules van den Eertwegh, has started to work within the company a few years ago. With this fifth generation on board, and staff that has been around from the early beginning, you can be sure there is a lot of knowledge of craft and sense for tradition present in our stores.
