The line can be a bit long at times but moves reasonably fast. Definitely take this time to window shop for the fabric patterns you will like, on the wall inside is a display of all the colors they have.

This is the place for espadrilles...great variety and reasonably priced too. Watch the hours they are closed on Sunday. Be ready with your order and there early because the line will be long and the shop is tiny
Arrived about 9.15am on a Monday and only waited a few minutes. The gentleman who assisted me was very patience as I don't speak Spanish, and he helped me found the shoes that would fit my orthotic. Found three pairs but, could've easily bought more.
Be prepared for the process. At Casa Hernanz it is best to window shop first, make yourself a list of the shoes you are interested in. Next you get in line to get into the store . Once you get up to the counter be...More
Own a pair of shoes made by craftsmen whose skills were passed on from generation to generation. Since 1845.
- check store hours before going.

Just off of the plaza mayor this unique espadrille shop was a pleasure to come across. We were walking down the lanes of shops coming off of the plaza and the colourful shoes in the window and the queue of people outside was what caught...More
Casa Hernanz is one of *the* places for espadrilles in Madrid. Heard about the long queues, but thankfully visiting in December and going there around opening time meant no queues.
Lots of variety and colors. Take a picture of the shoe that you like and...More
Got myself 2 pairs of stripped size 44 (ladies) and they are so comfortable. I was hoping to find some "pretty/fashionable" ladies shoes but basically had to purchase a mens style. None of the fancy ones went up to my size. Short wait. No English...More
This was my second visit to Casa Hernanz in Madrid, and love the different styles of shoes they offer at great prices. The shoes that I purchased two years ago, were ideal for the weather in Arizona; and I came prepared with pictures and sizes...More
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
