Shoes, shoes, shoes!

Tony Alves is a very skilled cobbler in Dakar who loves what he does – which is lucky for us shoe-lovers! He makes shoes for men and women in a wide variety of styles, all depending on your preferences and creativity. He is willing to visit customers at home to discuss their preferences and get their sizes. Just show him a photo or browse his images of shoes he’s already made. Hundreds of options! (That’s my kind of shoe shopping!)

And did I mention his prices start around 8000cfa?

Below are some photos of Tony’s work. (You can click on each image to see a larger version.) And here’s a link to my Pinterest board with ideas of styles I’d like to have made.

What do you think? Gazelle Skirt shoe party, anyone? šŸ™‚
