Hit and Myst

Friday, March 02, 2012

While you won’t find towering heels and fancy brogues here, Myst at Bandra is still worth a visit, says Rhea Dhanbhoora

Shoe shops are dime a dozen in Bandra, so like us, you’re probably wondering why you should visit Myst. What struck us the minute we entered the small store was the long white sofa and the attractive overhead lights. Shoes are racked up at the sides, displayed well with bright lights. Things aren’t overflowing and the service is friendly but not annoying.

The theme was a no-brainer with all the sparkles hitting our eyes. There are no stilettos, pumps or peep toes and the store lacks fashionable brogues, boots and kitten heels. What they do have in plenty though are sling-backs, mules, pretty ballet flats and a wide variety of slippers, platforms, wedges and sandals adorned with stones and crystals.

They also have a small space designated to jewellery. The sparkly bracelets cost `300 while the necklaces and chains are priced from `350 onwards.

The slippers themselves aren’t spectacular or unique, but they are eye-catching, heavily embellished and would be able to jazz up the simplest jeans and t-shirt combo or complement an intricate salwar-kameez. We loved a particular collection of slippers (`900) in colours such as blue and pink. They were simple, with a single stone dressing up the middle and would go well with a pretty dress.

There’s a range of stone encrusted slippers as well and if that’s more your style, there was a pair of gorgeous slippers with emerald coloured stones and pearl straps for `1,700 that we couldn’t get our eyes off. Their new collection (`1,700) features a lot of browns and coloured stones but we were drawn in particular to a pair of slippers with blue flower fixings (`1,250).

The store specialises in hand crafted footwear, designed with a blend of traditional styles and a few modern touches here and there. What’s different about Myst, is that they also customise footwear, clutches and pashminas according to your needs.
