This stret is over 200 meters long and was called Lataste Street during the French colonial period. It is where makers of shoes and sandals are concentrated, particularly those who migrated from the three Cham villages, Truc Lam, Van Lam and Lam Phong, in the Gia Loc district of Hai Duong province.
They formed Hai Tuong village ( the village of shoemakers) and erected a temple to honour the ancestor of leatherwork at No.16 Hai Tuong ally
Hang Giay is very narrow, only about five meters wide, and has almost no sidewalks. Today it is full of shops primarily selling candy.
