Snipes, the German-based chain of sneaker stores, is reportedly planning to launch a women-specific format of shoe stores under a different name, which would also offer high-heeled shoes and clothing. Meanwhile, Snipes has opened its first Spanish store in the Gran Casa shopping center of Zaragoza. It is said to be planning a larger opening in Barcelona. Controlled by Deichmann since 2011, Snipes entered the Dutch market earlier this year. It now has more than 100 stores in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands. It also has its online store.
