First and foremost, Chaussures Maniet is a Belgian-Walloon family business, with over 35 years’ experience in branded footwear retail. 


One company with two complementary concepts: 

On one hand, Maniet, full service stores located in shopping centres, focusing exclusively on footwear.

On the other, Luxus, larger retail spaces on the outskirts of cities, offering self-service footwear, in addition to clothing and accessories for men, women and children.



 

We sell footwear for the whole family, who come back time and again thanks to our wide range of products, brands and services, and quality advice from employees flourishing in a friendly environment.
