Denim Sandals, Oxfords & Brogues: Why Every Girl Needs To Go Shoe Shopping At FC Road

Sneha posted on 22 February

If you think FC Road is only about colorful jutis and cute flip-flops, think again. We spent three hours hunting for high-fashion footwear of good quality that are affordable too. The result? Read more to find out!

Pointy Oxfords

Perfect for work or otherwise, traditional Oxfords add an indisputable classiness to any look. These shoes are pointy towards the toes and are flat at the base that make it extremely comfortable to be in through the day. Priced at INR 300 for a pair, we found Oxfords in tones of matt black, shiny grey and elegant peach, at this tiny store opposite Cream California.

Ankle Strap Denim Flatbeds

Very chic, very Bohemian, we found this glamorous pair of denim flatbeds with ankle straps at City Walk on FC Road. Priced at INR 550, the dual straps have thin patterned borders with cute blue tassels stitched on them. Pair these with distressed shorts or a summer dress, and you managed to get a great look on point. If you aren’t a big fan of ankle straps, check out the collection of edgy gladiators and open-toe sandals out here.

Ikat & Kalamkari Slip-Ons

Cute Walk is perhaps one of the biggest shoe stores on FC Road, boasting of footwear of all kinds and colours, for as low as INR 150. From platform to kitten heels, cute pumps and knee-length boots, they’ve got it all covered one roof. We wanted something unique and ethnic, and surprisingly enough stumbled upon these pretty ikat and kalamkari print slip-ons for INR 350 each. They also have them in colourful floral and tie-and-dye prints that are priced at INR 450.

Bubble Slippers

Yes, that’s right! Slippers with bubble insoles are a thing and you must get them now. Also, we know it’s not “high-fashion”, but look at them, they are insanely quirky and definitely deserve a mention! Available in vibrant hues of pink, blue and yellow, these are priced at INR 150 for a pair and are unbelievably comfy and therapeutic once you wear them. You can get these at this small store, right next to Flavours Toast.

Star & Stone Studded Boots

Winters are gone, but boots are never truly out of trend. Having said that, we found stylish pairs of ankle, knee and mid-length stone-studded boots for INR 1,690 at this shoe store right behind Hotel Roopali. Available in suede and foam leather, we particularly loved the ones in classic tans and blacks. They also have tons of options in buckled and the lace-up boots, peep-toe mules and Wellington/rain boots {for monsoons, of course!}

White Brogues

The only store on FC Road where we found brogues was Cute Walk. Low-heeled with decorative perforations, we bought this off-white pair for INR 490. Also, the owner informed that just a couple of these are left in the stock, so you better hurry before its all cleared.

Sparkly Stilettos

Love the 80’s? Then get your hands on these glittery stilettos in gold, silver, black and mauve, from this tiny store next to Wadeshwar. Priced at INR 550, we think these are perfect for weddings or your Friday disco nights with girlfriends.

If you love white canvas and platform shoes, FC Road is full of ’em. We picked this pair of denim canvas shoes with cute patchworks for INR 690 and this black pair of platforms with rose embroidery for INR 450. Pretty neat, right?
