Mertens Schoenen


For 8 generations, 'Mertens' has been a household name for quality shoes in Louvain and far beyond. For 285 years - making them the oldest shop in Belgium - they have been offering a huge range of 'wearable, affordable fashion' for ladies and gentlemen and they select the very best brands at the leading international shoe fairs in Düsseldorf and Milan, and at the Brussels Trade Mart. The result in the store is a highly varied collection featuring the latest trends for each new season. They stand out from the large store chains thanks to the broad choice of quality shoes we offer, combined with unmatchable service.

The collections of Van Bommel and Floris van Bommel shoes, are presented in the Authorized Shop.
