Kung fu shoe – Sheung Wan


, ,

190 Hollywood Rd., Sheung Wan mrs tam kwok kwong leather shoe just up the steps towards Pound Lane, tel: 2547 1368 Open daily, 9:30 a.m.-7 p.m.

Choose from one of the pre-made shoes in canvas or leather, or let Mrs Tam measure you for your very own custom-made pair  or go to Beijing  kungfu shoe 内联升 store to buy one:)

  • For congee I whole heartedly recommend Lor Fu Kei, Sheung Wan Queens Rd Central #144. Get off Sheung Wan station, exit E and walk about 5 mins. Congee is supposedly made to order.

    Lok Ku Rd, Sheung Wan. Intersection of Tung Street. On the Hollywood Rd side of the street. There is a small hole in the wall vintage watch place. Not sure if they do repairs, but they seem to know their stuff and might be able to put you in touch with someone who does repairs.

    Intersection of Wellington St and Queens Rd Central. South side corner. There’s a place that has a huge range of vintage stuff that I’ve been told also does high quality restorations, but is unlikely to be cheap
