Don’t you just love Jimmy Choo?
Only in dreams unfortunately but in the meantime there is Lisadore.com who stock ‘Comme Il Faut’ shoes as they should be, the best shoes in the world.
” No woman needs more than one pair of shoes. But when it comes to shoes and women, the word need doesn’t make any sense.” Alicia Muniz Shoe collector, designer and founder of Comme il Faut the house that changed the design concept of women’s shoes for tango and Buenos Aires nightlife.
Where they sell these shoes is also beautiful, the street itself is like a little side street in Paris and is lined with artisan shops. See the images on the home page of their site below. They aren’t just heels but works of art. The attendants come with pile high boxes, overflowing with tissue and bright colours, from a back room they bring what they think you will suit with only a mild indication of colour or size, you wait with baited breath on a zebra print sofa in a little private room, it feels like cinderella waiting to go to the Milonga Ball and Alicia is the Fairy Godmother of Shoes, they have been called the Manolo’s of the Tango world. see the LaMaleva video on their site www.commeilfaut.com.ar/eng/vidos.php
