Three generations since it opened its first shoe store in Menorca in 1918, the family-owned Jaime Mascaró has grown into a full-fledged international brand, with dozens of locations across Europe. At their first Stateside boutique, opened in 2002, affordable leather boots, strappy sandals and slingbacks, and party-ready ballet flats designed by Jaime Mascaró (the founder’s grandson) and his daughter, Ursula, attract at clientele of international tourists and bargain hunters, many of whom stop by after hitting nearby shoe emporium Te Casan. The shoes here stretch the length of the long, one-room shop’s curving blue walls, while a small selection of leather handbags perch behind the register. Best sellers are from in-house brand Pretty Ballerinas, a collection of bold ballet flats in patent leather, suede, animal prints, metallic leather, and glittery fabrics festooned with delicate bows, buckles, or Swarovski crystals. Knee-high boots and suede booties are popular in colder months, crafted for stylish comfort with leather soles and modest heels that rarely top two inches. A smaller selection of oxfords and loafers for men are available in leather or suede. The shoes are direct from Spain, as is most of the shoe-savvy, Spanish-speaking staff.Sales
