Default Shoe shops

Are there any good shoe shop in Port de Pollensa or Pollensa. I need to buy a pair of shoes for a wedding and the time is running out.

Smile Been there, done that!

Ho Ho!!! The first ones to try and where you will probably have the best choice, are the ones along the front. There are about 3 which are pretty large and can have some unusual designs. Its all the luck of the draw though as sometimes their fashions appear either really really dated, far too Italian looking, or just plain wrong!
Dont just glance in though, you need to look at every pair (this may be just me again of course) as you could well find the right pair right next to a pair that your nan would wear!
Check the windows and shelves.
There are some shops along the side roads too, but I am useless at remembering exactly where. I think there is a shop up the side road from the pedestrianised area too - may be next to te Daina, although Im not certain, that is m ainly a small boutique clothes shop. They also do lovely shoes, so try and find it.
The other big store of course is Anthonys at Inca, and there are a couple more on the opposite side of the road. Huge choice here as well.
Only problem now is that you will be in the season where they are promoting their boots more than party type shoes, but you may be lucky!
Let me know!

Default Shoes, shoes and more shoes

What about a bus ride into Alcudia? I know I have had shoes from there in the past, shops both around the port and down the tourist strip. Also the markets have stalls with pairs elastic banded together but it is aways worth a rumage I find. Good luck, we women understand the importance of shoes.

I think the shoe shop Bella means is up the side street by what used to be restaurant Mistral (now TEX MEX ) They have some beautiful ones in there...very expensive 'tho! Another good shoe shop is the one next to, or next but one, to what used to be Mir and is now a bank...near the roundabout on the Pollensa road. Sorry don't know the name of other shop!!

Can Picaforte has also got loads of very nice shoe shops if you fancy a little drive.

The shoe shop beside the new Barclays Bank is Sirocco they also have a shop in Pollenca, just along fron Clivia. Another worth a try is Lina's which is beside the newsagents and Chloe which if you cross the road at the newsagent and turn left towards Neptuno you will find it. Good Luck.

I believe that the shoe/leather shop next to the newsagent sells the previous years stock from their two other shops on the front - well worth a root around though!

There is another one facing the end of the Formentor Road, i call it "The Kodak Shop" because the canopy has Kodak on it. Have bought loads of pairs of sandals in there over the years, prices are reasonable too.

Hello, if you pass the roundabot (towards alcudia) after the chineese restaurant you find a couple that have nice shoes, and not too expensive (as I remember)
Good luck and have a nice party with high heels
