If you're looking for fashionable shoes, then don't read my review. If you care about your feet, want a personalized service, understand what size and shape of shoes are good for your feet, have a great pair of good-looking shoes for specific purpose(s), then go ahead and visit Friemel AG. Tram lines 2 and 3 stop right across this shop so it is very convenient.
What to buy: Friemel AG Schuh-Fachgeschaeft Orthopaedie-Schuhtechnik offers the right shoe for every occasion for you (except for parties).
What to pay: More than you pay for for shoes that look nice but hurts.

Buying a Swiss Watch
Personally, I'd go to Bucherer (http://www.bucherer.com/en/home.html): I still have my dad's watch that he bought in Lucerne in 1963.
IMO, for the best "authentic bought in Switzerland watch" he can't do better than the Swiss Railways Watch: http://www.mondaine.com/mondaine/ (Also available by Amazon, but one actually bought in Switzerland would be better - haven't looked at prices tho')

You or may not have seen a Freitag bag. They have become increasingly popular worldwide with now 350 stores.
The story started here in Zurich when the two Freitag brothers wanted to have a messenger bag to be used on a bike. In 1993 they produced the first such waterproof bag out of the old used ingredients of a lorry tarpaulin, a seat belt from a car and a bicycle inner tube.
The successful enterprise now employs 120 people.
This is a Zurich fairy tale!
What to buy: Bags, backpacks, purses, iPad covers etc etc in different colours and shapes.

The new shopping miles in Zurich opened almost a year now. It seems that it is quiet here nowadays but a visit is worthdoing. This is a unique shopping center built into the arches of one of Zurichs' historic, but still fully operational railway bridges. Just come, whether it is to shop or just to eat in the restaurant and soak up to a different atmosphere of outing. For kids, there is a large playground behind the arches. To those who prefer to have only a walk after a visit, just go up the steps between the arches and enjoy a pleasant stroll. Get ready with your travel gear, a capture of passing trains is a must.
Let's start in the Markthalle, packed wall-to-wall with exclusive little stalls and shops stocked with carefully sourced fresh produce like English cheese and pies, fresh fruits from Camerun, Swiss specialties, fish vareity at the Austern Bar, beautiful flowers, fresh fine breads and pastries and so on.
The best area inside located at the end of the hall is the Restaurant Markthalle where we could enjoy a cup of coffee with a fine piece of cake :) or stop for lunch or dinner or enjoy a drink at the Bar. This restaurant is unique because it boasts a menu developed weekly from fresh produce available in the market.
Furthermore, are sport shops to trendy casual wears like Companys and Big, to elegant evening dresses, shirts and shoes, books, and even a Caritas and a secondhand shops.
I'm glad, i found a new place to go now and then with my family and to meet friends.
What to buy: We bought exotic fruits from Camerun, British cheese and freshly baked Paraform bread
What to pay: reasonable to expensive

Chocolate of course. Switzerland is famous for its chocolate industry and quality. The ‘Swiss’ brand, especially the white one is my favourite in the world. It is going very well with a dark Czech lager (by the way) :)

As you can see in the photo, Louis Vuitton's luxury goods are so precious and high-priced, that they can be displayed only with the dual-custody of cages!
I do not know, whether the shopowners ever free the handbags, shoes and suitcases!
What to buy: Definitely not Louis Vuitton-products, but rather chocolade, watches and cheese !

Bahnhofstrasse, Zürich (shopping avenue) starting at main train station
It is very similar to any major shopping street in Europe
What to buy: The main advantage of this street is quantity of luxury shops. In this street you may found the shops of well known fashion brands (Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Hugo Boss etc.), many jeweller's shops, sweetshops and other more or less expensive shops. With the exception of this the street is nothing special. In the middle of Banhofstrasse there are tram way and at full length of the street there are many tram stations
