Diamonds will always be my first love but I am a total shoe-junkie at heart. You know that sudden feeling of euphoria when you put on an amazing pair of heels? I thrive on that. While I do dream of having a closet that could give Carrie Bradshaw a competition, I strongly believe that a girl can survive in the city and still manage to live stylishly with only five basic pairs of shoes.  Here is my pick.

You're so right, Linda. Zanotti shoes are the best shoes ever! Madhurima, yes, the Chopard diamond encrusted shoes are the world's most precious shoes! Sigh! If only I could own those...
15-JUNE-2011 Linda
Have you checked out the Giuseppe Zanotti Pre-Fall 2011 collection or Christian Louboutin’s collection embellished with fur, buckles, studs and suede? TO DIE FOR!!
15-JUNE-2011 Madhurima
Since diamonds is your passion, did you know the world's most precious shoes are Diamond-Encrusted beauties from Chopard? Whew!

Hi Jamini! If it's luxury bespoke shoes you're after, try Audelade in Worli. If you're looking for espadrilles or gladiators, try BASH http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=106581372722401 You can also try Bootmaker in Bandra or Joy footwear in Colaba. Hope this helps. :-)
I'm from kOLKATA too and yes even I prefer the Chinese shoes; nice pumps at affordable rates. Perfect for office.

Sorry for writing in again Tara but I really respect your opinion and am still wondering if you could hep me with any address for bespoke shoes? Looking forward to your answer!! [fingers crossed]

Wow! That sounds so interesting, Paromita. I must absolutely check it out if I'm ever there. Thanks for the tip! :-)

Catwalk wins hands down for the pricing, quality and designs!!!

I hail from Kolkata and apart from a few basic good brands there really isn't anything for the style-conscious set. Having said that, the made-to-order Chinese shoes near New Market is FABULOUS!!!!!
There's magic in YSL and Versace

Nidhi, Puma has the coolest pop-art inspired sneakers ever! Check it out. * Radhika, that's true. Aldo does have the best shoes. * Lata, try Catwalk--I have featured them on my blog earlirer, check it out here http://chic-confessions.com/2011/04/summer-days/

Nothing to beat the shoes at Aldo!!

Other than the fabulously expensive sneakers endorsed by Manish Arora and Bipasha Basu, could you recommend some good chic ones for the gym?

You haven't worn luxury shoes until you've worn your first air of Choos... what say?
09-JUNE-2011 Tara
Jamini, try Candy Village if you're looking for flats--you're gonna love it. Check out my last blog post here for more details http://chic-confessions.com/2011/05/five-shopping-hotspots-in-mumbai-you-probably-dont-know-about/ * Harshita, very true. Also, let's not forget Tresmode. * Sharmila, Zara has amazing shoes!

Tell us about some factory outlets where we can buy it cheap... or someone who does bespoke shoes.

NOTHING beats Nine West... and Catwalk in Mumbai!

I like the embellished flat shoes and studded stilettos at Zara
09-JUNE-2011 Tara
Payal, These are 5 shoes I either have in my closet (the tan Zara booties!) or are in the stores and on my wishlist (Vivienne Westwood Melissa!). * Anandita, OMG the Dior Extreme gladiator sandals! If only I could get those in my closet, I'd be the happiest girl on this planet! :-)
08-JUNE-2011 Payal Jaikishan
Are these five shoes in your closet or are they available at the stores right now?
08-JUNE-2011 Anandita Sen
I love Carrie Bradshaw's shoes especially the Dior Extreme gladiator sandals and the python heeled Proenza Schouler in SATC!!
