Steppin’ Out

Every girl, no matter how precious, particular, or persnickety about her footwear, will eventually need a shoe repair shop. And on the cobblestone sidewalks of Berlin, perhaps sooner than one would normally think. The sound of a bare-to-the-nail heel on pavement of any sort is one of my personal pet peeves. The click is distinctive and unlike a well-maintained shoe, the sound is not glamorous but grating, like fingernails on a chalkboard or a child screaming while you’re trying on a new pair of

Pedro Garcia heels. If you’re in Berlin and find yourself in the position where your soles need some love and care, visit a Flickschuster.

Often found hidden in the same shop with the guy who’ll cut your keys or engrave your ID bracelet with the name of your high school sweetheart, the shops located at AlexanderPlatz and Ostbahnhof or the new Hauptbahnhof will make short work of those raggedy heels setting you on the right path.

For a high-end solution, visit KaDeWe, the answer to everything luxury label in this town. Those folks will make sure you put your best foot forward.
