Most people go to church to save their souls. Jamie goes to save her soles.
I have no idea how she knew anything about this particular shoe store in Barcelona, but WE HAD TO GO THERE! It was like a religious pilgrimage for her. And now you can see why — one full wall of shelves from floor to ceiling, all crammed full of shoes of every size and style and color and material imaginable.
Moses spent 40 years wandering the desert in search of the Promised Land, and we spent about 40 minutes wandering Barcelona’s La Rambla district in search of this store.
But I swear to god that it seemed like 40 years.
UPDATE: Jamie was horrified when she read this. She informs me that these are not mere shoes, they are espadrilles. They’ve been handmade in this very shop by the same family since 1941 and they are iconic in Barcelona.
