Master Shoe Repair

Whether you are a pedestrian walking in the shopping street rue Vanderkindere, or driving by in a car, you can't help but notice this well kept, inviting shoe repair shop which exudes the charm of times gone by.  

Mous, which must be short for Moustafa, is a proud man and delighted to get the opportunity to show his shop to the photographer. His shop thrives. He has been in this spot for more than 30 years. He is second generation, his parents moved to Belgium from Morocco in 1960 and he  calls himself not without pride a "real Belgian at heart".
