What: Hand-painted shoes at al artz, 5C Jungi House, Shahpurjat, call 9811970891 or visit the website here, Rs 1,000 for ballet flats.
Why: Despite a stock dominated by been-there-done-that kitsch (see LOVE clock and hideous Rajesh Khanna trays) this brand new, overtly pink shop makes our toes curl. One glance at proprietor and artist Alisha’s forest green ballet flats hand-painted with merry butterflies, and you’ll see why. Also check out super soft magenta loafers dotted with roses, a pensive mermaid with locks spilling across two shoes and pink kitten heels. Hey, sole sister!
When: You need a new pair of Train(ers).
