miss b loves .......shoe quotes and more shoes!



During our trip to Dubai last month I decided to return to Level Shoe District, the world's biggest shoe store. (You can read about my first visit here.) This time there were shoe quotes everywhere and I couldn't resist taking photos of a few favourites .......


I definitely agree with this one too ....


.....some good advice.......


........a few cute ones.......



and probably the most well-known shoe quote.....



 Of course I was also looking at the shoes and spotted this Julian Hakes stunning design ..... a work of art .......



but finally bought a more wearable and versatile pair...Geox ballerina flats ....


....... beige patent leather and black nappa with breathable soles ideal for spring and summer .....



This is such a huge store ..... they even provide 'maps'!



Disappointed that the Vogue Café had still not opened .....a good excuse to go again though!

However, Margaret Dabbs, the celebrity foot expert from London, has just opened a foot clinic.... The Sole Lounge .... and as we walked past they invited us to have a look around (they also offer men's treatments) A beautiful salon...... I definitely intend to book an appointment next time I'm in Dubai ...




 ...and finally a few more quotes which caught my eye ......






All quotes were photographed in the Level Shoe District, Dubai Mall .......


PS If like me you love shoes, then you will enjoy reading the book .... Fifty Shoes that Changed the World ... which I reviewed here.

  2. I find that Geox is very wearable as well - rather good marketing as well.

    But that julian shoe - wow - that is a beauty...did you try it on? would have loved a modeling shot :)

  5. I love quotes. I used the Marilyn quote in one of my previous posts actually and have just used a sex and the city quote in my last post. I love the Cinderalla and Oprah quote too. This sounds exactly like my kind of place - i would have been in heaven - shoes quotes and shoes ha ha. Your ballerina flats are so pretty!

  8. How amazing is the shoe district!! I wanted to pitch a tent and live there, lol! And then I turned the shoes over to see the prices of a pair of Manolo's and Roger Vivier's and the dream was over. Love how they added cute quotes to the pictures.

  15. Oh, these shoe quotes are so delightful. I want to write a few of them down. What a wonderful place to go for shoes. I just tried on a pair of flats in size 9 (kept slipping off), so tried them in an 8 (too tight). They don't have half sizes at this particular store, so I'm out of luck. I love shoes just like you, my friend.

    This post makes me want to buy a new pair of shoes!! LOVED IT!!
