Shoe Ins: The Haute 5 Shoe Stores in Dallas

There’s something about Manolo…

Head-to-toe fashion matters, which is why what your tootsies see isn’t in any way moot, no matter what the man in your life says (50 pairs of chic pumps are merely the tip of the pedicured iceberg.) To celebrate your love for lower level fashion, here’s a few haute boutiques to find that perfect fit.

Lou Lou

This just in: With almost one million votes to prove it, Lou Lou’s just won D Magazine’s poll for best shoe store in Dallas. And it’s hard to wonder why, with their exceptional collection coupled with their oh-so helpful staff. You might as well be glass slipper shopping, and the new inventory for Fall is proof: Beverly Feldman black suede, peep toe, lace-up-the-back platforms, Michael Kors wedges and studded clogs, Kenneth Cole Unlisted faux suede and folded-over style booties. Still feeling like dealing with the summer heat? Try the Volatile flip flops.

Lou Lou, 4417 Lovers Lane, 214.521.8833,


Known for its incredible shoe selection of recognized European brands like Baldini, Riviera and Lanzoni, Gregory’s is also known to carry local designer lines, like Rocio Ildemaro’s gorgeous ready-to-wear line.

13350 Dallas Parkway, Suite 1365, 972.490.1285,


A personal fave, Tootsie’s not only carries some great designer dresses but some heels to match. Alexander McQueen, Moschino, Diane von Furstenberg, you can easily spend hours in this place.

Linus Lounge

While possibly the most exclusive shoe store in D town, Linus does carry some fantastic rare finds. But beware: these days, you must make an appointment to get in. In a hurry? Head down the street to Stanley Korshak.

Linus Lounge, 2724 Routh Street, 214.965.0180


Jimmy Choo, Stuart Weitzman, Prada? Check. Also if you need accessories or some personal shopping expertise (not that you really need it,) Fossee’s is your place.
