Subur Shoes, Barcelona...

One of the many things I love to do in Barcelona is just to stroll around the winding narrow streets of El Gòtic, just to see where they'll lead me. A recent wandering led me down Carrer de Boqueria and to this amazing shoe shop, which apart from a small section of large leather bags, sells a huge selection of ballet flats.



If you know me, you'll know that I love my flats. I like to look at high heels, and have even been known to venture out in them now and again, but due to a Morton's neuroma in my right foot I can't really wear them for more than an hour or two. I get very excited, therefore, when I see anywhere that sells a big selection of flats. I almost hyperventilated at the choice of colours and fabrics available here.



The shoes here seem to all be from a brand named Kokua. I can't find any information on them anywhere so if anyone can shed any light for me that would be great. I will say that the quality of the leather seems really good and they seem very well made. I'll try to find out more and let you know. The prices aren't horrendous, varying depending on whether they're leather, suede etc. The priciest pair I saw were 50 euros which I'd happily pay. I like a bargain but comfort is the clincher for me when it comes to shoes and I don't mind paying more for it.



No online links for these, I'm afraid, it looks like you'll have to come here if you want to buy from this shop. If you do, the address is Carrer de Boqueria 30, 08002 Barcelona. You may want to google that too as it's not far from La Rambla, but in El Gòtic it's quite easy to get lost.

I so agree...Barcelona is perfect to wander around or find a cafe in the corner of a placa and just watch the world go by.....

It's definitely a great city for people watching. I've had a hectic couple of weeks again but hopefully I'll be out this weekend to do some more people watching and shop hunting x

I'd love to visit Barcelona again. I had such a great time there a few years ago and ate the most amazing food.

Having bought a pair of ballerinas there this spring, I recently decided to paint them and searched for a link to integrate in the blog post. That way I discovered your blog and I am thrilled! Will often visit here. Hasta la próxima!
