Barcelona find: Kokua ballerinas

2015-07-07 17.02.21

If you find yourself in Barcelona, you must (let me repeat, *must*) visit Kokua, a shop that sells only ballerina flats.

“Only” doesn’t do this shop justice. It sells every type of comfortable ballerinas you could imagine: from low key and classic to attention-getting works of art.

The clincher for me was that the shop is family owned (at least according to its website…which looks like it hasn’t been updated for a while, unfortunately). Try your luck getting in touch on their Facebook page. I’m not sure if they sell online, but it’s worth a shot.

I walked out with the fabulous ruby-red glitter covered darlings at the top for EUR 70. Nothing happened when I clicked my heels three times though.

Where’s Glenda the Good Witch when I need her?

Kokua Barcelona

(The address above is the main store. There’s another branch very near it, but I think it’s for stock overflow.)
