Enter the world of Shoesette and you may never set foot in a big-box shoe store ever again. While the prices are midrange to high, they are certainly reasonable for the quality you’re paying for. You may find lesser shoe companies and stores in the neighbourhood, but you won’t find the quality, attention to detail and craftsmanship evident in the shoes at Shoesette. The store carries many exclusive Italian brands, equally obscure and unpronounceable to the average North American. Although the brands may not be recognizable, they do make up for it with heaps of razor-sharp European style. One classic Italian brand available here is the esteemed Fratelli Rossetti, established in 1953. The store is located just a few blocks north of Yonge and St. Clair, and easily accessed.
Shoes for All
As for the types of shoes sold at the store, they easily range from wild child to prim and proper. You can find trendy dove-grey pumps, slightly tweaked for the ’80s look. Someone who’s more inclined to be lunching with the ladies will enjoy a classic pump with a buckle and a stacked wooden heel. Boots of all types are available from ankle-length to knee-high with round, pointy or squared-off heels. While the craftsmanship is all spot-on, the fashion meter runs high at Shoesette. Sandals of all styles are on hand for those yearning for summer are also sold here – just make sure your feet are pedicure-primed! Classic loafers, European sporty-chic sneakers and driving shoes are available too.
