FALKE footprints Amsterdam: the new issue
FALKE presents the fifth issue of FALKE footprints just in time for travel season and makes its mark on the Dutch metropolis of Amsterdam. FALKE footprints highlights cool spots and interesting characters with the COOL CITIES guid
Video portraits of four exceptional talents—architect Don Murphy, Wetransfer founder Nalden, personal trainer Radmilo Soda, and club legend Olaf Boswijk round out this exciting eMagazine.
Don Murphy, architect of the future, introduces himself in FALKE footprints
As Irish architect Don Murphy came to the Netherlands 20 years ago, the country was looking for architectural innovation. Exactly right for this trailblazer of technical concepts.
City planning and development in the Netherlands are part of the survival of the entire society. More than 25% of the country lies below sea level, making sunshine and space an important part of life. Don Murphy designs feature massive windows that let the light shine in: “I let the inside out and the outside in,” says Murphy.

Nalden, innovative Blogger from the start and founder of WeTransfer.com, comes to FALKE footprints
This media artist has been showing his private side in his blog “Nalden.net”
The visionary developed innovative ideas early. In 2012, he developed the data transfer platform WeTransfer.com, with which you can transfer large data files from point A to point B. “Simple, secure, free, and good looking,” says the company about itself.

Radmilo Soda, personal trainer and founder of Soda Bodyfit, has fought hard, travelled far, and come a long way—and now to the pages of Falke footprints
Radmilo Soda is one of the most sought after personal trainers in Amsterdam. He learned early on, that you have to fight to get through life. In his home country of Croatia, he gained a sense for battle. At the age of 16, he came to the Netherlands, where he discovered boxing as an outlet for his frustration. At 20, he threw down in the ring for the first time and became champion—five years in a row. To conquer his goals is nothing new for this athlete.
Radmilo trains people from various walks of life without changing his approach. Whoever wants to grow as a person has come to the right place with Radmilo. “Help people help themselves” is his motto.

Olaf Boswijk, owner of the club TRouw and island lover – now in FALKE footprints
The contrast couldn’t be bigger. Industrial chic, halls, girders, and steel stairways: the legendary club TRouw (“belief” in English). In the middle, an open kitchen with fresh ingredients, organically grown vegetables, and bread. Olaf captures the spirit of the times for new bohemians and hipsters, who are looking for a place to bring friends and meet new people 24 hours a day.
In his free time, Olaf and his friends and family are building a restaurant on a small island near Amsterdam—everything self-made. He loves the calm, the sun, the wind, and the clouds. “We all have our lives, our preferences, and our passion. That’s what gets us through.”
