2 The Griffin
Located in shady Coconut Grove, The Griffin was founded by Capretto alum, Lesley Griffith. Her boutique is a shrine to the likes of Isabel Marant and Chloe and is, subsequently, revitalizing the Grove’s retail reputation. Griffith’s long history in the shoe industry, her friendships, and collaborations with designers like Giuseppe Zanotti, reinforce the expertise on which the boutique prides itself. The Griffin has become a haven for the daring footwear collector and a certified haute boutique.
3 The Webster
For a shopping experience that is all Miami, The Webster in South Beach is the place to be. With editorial shoots featuring its luxury products, those at The Webster have mastered the art of shoe retail. The mind behind all this? Laure Heriard Dubreuil, the founder and CEO. Every aspect of The Webster makes us emotional. From the 1930s Art Deco building where it’s housed, to its color-coordinated racks on its three floors inside, there are few places we’d rather see our next favorite shoes displayed.

Walking into this store is like walking into an oversized dream closet furnished and created in the vision of celebrated architects. Here, the ambiance and lighting are as impressive as the shoes. Zadig & Voltaire in the Design District was made for the bold trendsetter and gives off major cool kid vibes. It is the destination for boots, loafers, and sneakers; if its luxe rock and roll, they’ve got it and we can’t get enough.
