Looking to satiate your Spanish footwear cravings without boarding a red-eye to Barcelona? Pocket that plane fare and sprint to Té Casan, a Catalan-inspired collective filled with slews of drool-worthy shoes!
A shoe-a-holics dream, this sprawling 7,500 square-foot Soho flagship boasts three floors of eye-popping, limited-edition luxury lines created by 7 indie cobblers wooed from haute fashion houses such as Dries Van Noten and Dolce & Gabbana. Praised for superior service and an ultra sleek design, the private, space-agey fitting rooms alone will make you look and feel like royalty. Weekly shipments of femme fatale heels ranging from patent-leather platform stilettos to high-tech trainers look strikingly similar to, dare we say, Louboutin and the all-mighty Prada. As if the stylish inventory alone wasn’t enough to make you loco, everything sold at this global footwear haven is a fraction of the cost!
You’d better run, don’t walk – there are only 74 shoes for every featured style (each complete with an imprint of the number from that series on the sole). So if you’re debating over those black satin, crystal-encrusted ballerina flats that Mena Suvari snapped-up, don’t ponder too long. Once they’re sold out, re-ordering is out of the question. Now that Natalie Portman’s designing an exclusive vegan collection that’s set to debut this fall, you’d better plan your shopping strategy pronto to ensure you’re numero uno in line. Olé!
