Wonderful Ballerina Shoes!
Jan 2019
Many years ago, I was attracted to this place seeing the colorful ballerinas through the windows. My size is in between 35 and 36, so I always had a hard time finding a nice fit. With the help and patience from the salesgirl, I found the size and style that fit my feet nicely. I bought a pair to give it a try and fell in love with it. After that, I always picked up a few pairs every time I visit Barcelona. They have the colors that I can’t find elsewhere, and the price is reasonable considering they’re all handmade. This year I happened to find out I can actually purchase their shoes online, and I am so thrilled. With the help from Jenna, I was able to order the ballerinas I want and they all arrived promptly with careful packaging. Their service is so amazing that I do not have to wait till my next trip to Barcelona for new ballerinas now.

Spoilt for choice at Kokua!
Dec 2018
When you cannot find a model or a size you'd like you can try another Kokua shop in BCN. There are 3 or 4 of them!

There are a few of these shops in Barcelona, mostly located in the Gothic area. So many shoes. I loved the bags, very good quality leather, 2 sizes and there are offers for 1 pair of shoes and 1 small bag and 1 pair of shoes and a large bag (€200).

beautiful well made shoes

I loved every pair of shoes they had........Saleswoman was a bit standoffish but I had read that in prior posts. Shoes are well made, comfortable and beautiful.

Thank you for your visit and the review Roseanne! Sorry to hear that the customer service wasn't on point in the time of your visit in one of the stores, usually our salespersons are sunny and helpful! Enjoy your Kokua shoes and have a great summer!

Comfortable straightaway
Jun 2019 • Solo
Bought a pair as I came across the shop by chance. In comparison with other flats that I acquired in the past, the pair did not require 'breaking in' - I did make sure to buy a pair that was soft on my feet. Anyhow, later on the day I wore it in the evening and walked around an hour or longer. No blisters or broken skin.

Another positive point - the shoes are so light! They will be in my travelling companion hopefully for many years to come.

Ballet flats for days!
May 2019
Every color you can imagine and many different textures. I have had multiple foot surgeries and they were able to help me find a comfortable and fun pair (cobalt blue) of shoes. They even offered free insoles to customize the fit.

Super-comfortable pretty shoes!
May 2019 • Solo
I found this place on my trip to Barcelona last week (May 5-10) and picked up a pair of black leather shoes with a subtle animal print in them. I'm wearing them to work every day and I absolutely love them. Wish I had bought more pairs while I was there.

Great customer service in Barcelona and abroad!
Sep 2018 • Solo
I happened upon the shop while in Barcelona and was awed by the selection of colors for their handbags. The handbags on display are beautiful. The leather is top notch and the construction is unique. The large bag is roomy and great for airplane travel. The bags are very strong so when shopping I usually put my purchases inside. My 22 and 24 year old daughters loved the bags so much that they each asked for another for Christmas. From the states online I ordered more bags. They arrived promptly in time for the holidays. Communication by email kept me updated on the shipping. Another shopper warned against online purchases, but my experience could not have been better. The bags arrive in beautiful boxes too! Thank you Kokua.

The BEST Ballerina shoes
May 2018 • Friends
I have been to Barcelona 2x and each time I have splurged and bought myself some shoes here. The leather is so soft and its like a candy shop with all the different color combinations. Since my first visit, a few storefronts have opened; each with a certain size range. Cant wait to go back this July and pick up a few more colors.
