Jalan Cibauyut in the South of Bandung is to shoes what Cihampelas is to jeans. The statue of two bronze shoes at the beginning of the street conveys it all: shoes of all sorts and sizes make up the bulk of what this street sells. Unfortunately, as in so many other cases, the shopping experience is greatly hampered by the constant traffic passing by with its fumes that will even camouflage the smelliest sneaker. Also the lack of proper sidewalks make it mandatory to watch your step or you'll end up with a strained ankle before you even entered a shop. Nevertheless, if you are keen on shoes and like a bargain, Jalan Cibaduyut will both satisfy your feet as your wallet. To get there, either take a taxi or hop on one of the angkots that states Cibaduyut, and get off past the shoe statue.
Most of the branded shoes might not be the real thing even though, many still are of good quality and it is hard to tell if it concerns the real thing or not. Other than that most shoes are Indonesian brands, again of good enough quality and economically priced.
