    Hi everyone. Although I'm German, I haven't been in there in a long time..but my father is flying over on Monday for his mother's birthday.

    I've wanted a pair of Chelsea boots for some time now, but the selection here in Toronto is honestly quite awful. I was thinking my father could pick me up a pair at either a shop in Dusseldorf or Frankfurt. I'm looking fo either black or dark brown, preferably not breaking the bank (200-250 Euro's). Any ideas of spots he could take a look at?

    A friend recently bought some chelsea boots at chelsea farmer's club in Duesseldorf.

    Have a look at Diehl&Diehl in Frankfurt, a nice shop with great owners - their chelseas might be more expensive though.

    No idea about Düsseldorf but
    +1 on Diehl&Diehl in Frankfurt, just take into consideration they only offer shoes upwards of EU41/42.
    Also check the small collection at Cove & Co at Bethmannstraße and the selection on the first floor of Görtz between Zeil and Freßgass.

    +1 on Goertz. Could also check out the Lloyd shop in MyZeil, or the shoe section at Ansons, also in MyZeil.

    There was a place selling reasonable Peal & Co stuff at the corner of Kaiserstrasse and Moselstrasse, right near the main train station/sleaze district. Can't recall if they had any Chelseas though.

    I went to Diehl & Diehl on the rec of a number of threads in this forum. Really nice store. Picked up a few things on sale (end of the sale season here).

    Hahner an der Oper (aka Willi Hahner) was also pretty nice http://www.yelp.com/biz/hahner-an-der-oper-jürgen-hahner-frankfurt-am-main

    These places had nice accessories like Magli umbrellas, fancy socks. Diehl & Diehl had an incredible shoe selection.

    As you walk along Zeil, there are a lot of stores as well, although many of them chains.
