Combat Boot Fashion by Beatriz Furest

Combat boot fashion is a throw-back to the 90s style, but it never really went away. It remains a key element of the "grunge" look.

The Spanishoegallery Blog is three years old! Anniversaries (and this one is a milestone of sorts) make you think.

That said, I also have a preference for the designers who work in collaboration with the shoe brands I feature. Here are three couturiers that are not only super talented but who also went with a Spanish shoe designer to complement their collections.

Salamanca: The Round Up

Rounding up the Made in Spain shoe and accessories shopping in the upscale Salamanca district, there are a few more stores worth naming, which are known to me not through shopping guides or city maps ( I use these just for reference), but through actual people that run them, like Elena de Mingo, one of the executives of eMe Shoes.
