Men, Here's Where You Can Buy Shoes On A Budget
Kumar Footwear on JM Road gets local factories to design shoes and stocks the store up with them. The store is full of men’s footwear starting at INR 500 for slippers and other casual shoes. We loved a black formal pair for 1250 and another tan shoe for 1595. The store also has a few brands on the rack.
We found original FILA and U.S.Polo Assn loafers starting at INR 2,000 at Shoe Studio. These would look great when you’re hanging out on a weekend, wearing chinos and light linen shirt and looking effortlessly cool. The store offers shoes for men and women, so you can find casual and formal footwear for men like loafers, slip-ons, chappals and more. For women, you'll get sandals, flats and wedge and stiletto heels.

Skip the first copies and rip-offs for shoes by local cobblers at Just Shoes in Sadashiv Peth. You can get formal shoes starting at INR 500.
