Shoes made/copied in Goa

Does anyone know whether you can get women's shoes (high heels) made or copied from a picture in Goa? I know there are a lot of tailors and you can get dresses and suits copied but I don't know whether it's the same for shoes. I will be going to Goa in November and will be staying in Calangute so anywhere near there or Mapusa, Panjim etc is good for me to get to.

Thanks,

Lauren

Not really. I had some sandals copied once, sort of, but they couldn't replicate the heel which was only a low wedge. And they fell apart after a few months when the glue deteriorated.

In Mapsua market, there is a little shack that makes repairs to shoes, and boots, I only happened to find it by accident, it is on the front where the Tuk-tuks stand, inside is loads of wooden models that he has taken of peoples feet, I doubt if he will make copies of Jimmy choo or anything else like that, but I know that he made mens shoes from scratch, all leather upper and soles, my father still wears shoes he had made in a similar way 40 years ago in Hong Kong whilst we were living there.

KatieP, did you have any luck finding a shoe maker. I'm wanting a sandal copied & made, so should be easier to find such a shoe maker I hope.

Sorry Jools but I haven't seen any shoemaker, just sellers. I would suggest you speak to one of the many leather specialists in Goa, those that make jackets etc, and see if they could do something. This is what I did during my first and only experience of having shoes copied. It wasn't successful and I haven't tried since. I buy ready made.

The guy I used originally was in Calangute, down a side street towards the Colonia de Braganza. It was several years ago so I don't know if he's still there.

You might be able to get a bespoke flip flop made. People buy shoes from bata and even those are poor in comparison to uk.
