Along with clothing boutiques, Rome also boasts some great places to buy shoes. Stilettos, boots, sandals or decollete, shoes definitely have the power to make or break a look, this is why picking the right piece is of mandatory importance.
Some of the most exclusive shoe shops are in Piazza di Spagna, the area where you can also find the most famous Italian and international brands for clothes. Albano, at the number 92, and Casadei, at the number 82, sell truly gorgeous, classy and luxurious shoes, often finely embellished with Swarovski crystals or other precious stones or metals, and their prices easily reach 800-900 euros.
If you don't want to spend a fortune, there are different stores of “Danielle” brand in 39-40 Piazza Risorgimento, 106 Via Ottaviano, 169-171 Via Cola di Rienzo, in Prati area and 85a Via Frattina in the city center. Danielle displays a huge choice of all types of shoes and their prices are not that high, plus for winter and summer sales there are often 30/50 per cent discounts.
Another place where I often find shoes I like is Fede Lù in Trastevere, 170 Via San Francesco a Ripa, a young shop that sells very modern styles and latest trends of both shoes and accessories.
