When it comes to women’s shoes Spice, a retailer run by brother and sister Simone and Gerard since 1985, should be on you top 10 list.
Their two stores in Islington and Primrose Hill are in keeping with traditional TSL style – an independent family run business that started life on Camden’s market selling plimsoles to fellow Londoners. Since then the sneakers have been switched with beautiful heels and more sophisticated flats with prices heading higher. Think quality not quantity which will last for years to come.
They stock famous brands like Paul Smith as well as other designers such as Chie Mihara. That said, TSL’s firm favourite is Spice’s own label, Spice by C.Doux set up in 2008. Not only is it usually less expensive but the designs, which Gerard comes up with himself, are amazing. Every season there’s something to fall in love with.
