Don't be fooled by the rather nondescript storefront here, Boutique Vodeb is a true Ljubljana institution and an enchanting throwback to the days when handcrafted quality and personalised service were the norm. Located just off Šuštarski Most (Cobbler's Bridge), behind and above the small heavily leather-scented ground-floor showroom is a bustling workshop dedicated to the fine art of custom-made footwear, where amongst the rolls of leather, shelves of moulds and workbenches of well-used sewing machines, you can still find the eldest member of the Vodeb family, who has been in the business for more than seven decades. Custom-made shoes usually take up to a week to produce, but expedited orders are possible.
Open 09:00-18:00, Sat 09:00-12:00. Closed Sun.
