Needed a pair of shoes for a trip to Spain that were cute, comfortable for walking, but also went w/business clothes and jeans. I explained this to the staff who brought out every pair of black shoes w/the type of heel I was looking for that they had in my size. This kind of service was impressive and fun b/c they picked shoes that I never would have picked out on my own but was presently surprised with how they looked on. I settled on a pair of crushed black patten Mary Jane's. I already had an inexpensive, not so comfortable pair of black Mary Jane's but felt good going with these b/c the fit was great, I could actually run in them, and they were unbelievably comfortable and still cute enought to compete w/the beautiful shoes on my Spanish counterparts! And I am confident that they will last b/c this is the 3rd pair of shoes I've bought from Salamander.
Pros: Great service, great neighborhood, great comfort
Cons: Sales shelf is a little overwhelming, but that means lots of sales
