What Are You Going To Buy In The Shoe Shop?


This post deals with shopping in general, and with things you may want to buy in a shoe shop in particular.


Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or colleague. You are about to go shopping. and are making a shopping list. The other person says to you: "what are you going to buy in the shoe shop?"

In Spanish, the other person could choose to be less formal and say:
¿Qué vas a comprar en la tienda de calzados?

Alternatively, he/ she could choose to be more formal and say:
¿Qué va a comprar (usted) en la tienda de calzados?


Answering is quite straightforward. Naming something you can buy in a shoe shop should be sufficient. You may also want to indicate the colour, the size or the material your intended purchase is made off.

Here are some examples of what you could buy in a shoe shop:
  • Un par de zapatos (a pair of shoes).
  • Unas zapatillas (sneakers/ slippers/ trainers).
  • Unas sandalias (sandals).
  • Un par de botas (a pair of boots).
  • Unos zapatos negros (black shoes).
  • Unas zapatillas blancas (white sneakers/ slippers/ trainers).
  • Unas sandalias marrones (brown sandals).
  • Unas botas negras (black boots).
  • Unos zapatos de piel (leather shoes).
  • Unas zapatillas de lona (canvas sneakers/ trainers).
  • Unas sandalias de cuero (leather sandals).
  • Unas botas de goma (rubber boots/ wellies).

Now you should practise answering the question:
¿Qué vas a comprar en la tienda de calzados?
