Galeries Lafayette aims to please
Sandals and boots are available all year round for shoppers travelling to different climates. This is also great news for visitors doing travel shopping and whose home country climate does not align with Paris seasons. We were in Rome last month and couldn’t find any summer shoes at all!
Your Every Shoe Need
At the shoe department, there are also a variety of services are offered on site, from an artisan cobbler to a foot salon specialising in pedicures. A foot care centre offers everything you need to take care of your shoes and feet such as special brushes, shoe creams in all colors, foot-care lotions and so on.
The showroom has been organised into five themed areas : fashion, contemporary, urban, luxury and upmarket. You will find an original range that concentrates the world of shoes, from the most affordable to the most upmarket, and from the most traditional to the most creative.
