30 Calle Toledo, Madrid, 28005, Spain

Opened in 1897 and still featuring its original wooden counter and zinc roof, Calzados Lobo sells simple, inexpensive espadrilles, high-heeled shoes originally worn in the Pyrenees, in a mass of colors. The red-trimmed store is family-run and located on a corner that's two-minutes south of Plaza Mayor. Customers take a number and wait for service. The shelves, stuffed to the ceiling, display shoes ranging from theatrical and flamenco footwear to summer sandals. Although the style, color, and size combinations number in the throusands, most come to the shoe shop for the typical "summer casual" editions—the canvas or cotton espadrilles and alpargatas.
