Did you know that Christian Louboutin's men's shop has a tattoo service for your shoes? Or that local favorite Joanna Paige has pairs of Jeffrey Campbells designed specifically for her Brickell store? Shoes are not a detail to be taken lightly, especially in a city that isn't confined to boots for half of the year. High heels are standard. Sandals? A necessity. Miami is a serious city for footwear, and we've put together a list of 19 stores that will have you stepping out of your place in style.
We left out the obvious (we're looking at you Steve Madden) and included the over-the-top luxurious. There are some budget-loving options and we threw in some stores that are exclusively for the guys. They're arranged from South to North so you can start your day of shoe shopping at The Falls and end it up in Pines. Although we wouldn't suggest walking it, lest you have a Costco-sized supply of bandages. Click through to check them out and, as always, let us know if we missed any in the comments.
