About us

Shoes are more than just an afterthought to pair with your clothes. They are the quintessential pieces that tie your looks together and showcase a peek into your personality, your mood, what you plan to do with your day, or where you'll be going in the future. They are compact pieces of art. And we believe every woman should be able to find those perfect pieces that fit exactly what they're feeling and who they are that day, whether that may be taking a trip to Australia, flashing face and making memories at all the most exiting 'it' spots, or just walking across the street to the local market. It is that ideal that has formed this modern boutique of unique designs and quality brands to provide to you the shoes you must have, and we've endearingly called ourselves just that, musthaveSHOES.

We work with a group of fantastic people that are passionate about fashion, and have a flair for design and functionality. Their collaborations collide with each of their unique perspectives and concepts to create a world of shoes designed for ever woman's must haves.
