The Santee Alley Loves Lola Shoetique

If you're a true shoe lover, chances are you've already heard about Lola's. With over half a million followers on Instagram, Lola's Shoetique is the most popular shoe store in Santee Alley. They are known for their unique, trendy styles and amazing prices. Most heels range from $30-$65.

What many of you may not know, is that Lola Shoetique got it's start in 2004 as a woman's boutique. Shortly after opening, Lola (yes the store really is named after the owner!) realized her shoes were outselling everything else in the store and she decided to focus solely on bringing high-quality, one-of-a-kind shoes to the LA Fashion District. Lola Shoetique was born!

Fast forward 9 years later and there are now 7 Lola Shoetique locations in the Fashion District, with plans to expand into a franchise with stores in Miami, Las Vegas, and New York. Lola Shoetique manufactures, exports, and supplies boutiques across the United States and Southern and Central America.They work with over 55 shoe companies to develop and produce the fashion-forward heels that have made Lola's so popular.

Aside from the awesome shoes, we love Lola Shoetique for their dedication and support of Downtown LA and the LA Fashion District. As the company continues to grow, their home base is and always be in Los Angeles. The corporate office is headquarted in the Fashion District and Lola's remains a true family-run business with an incredible team.

If you're planning a trip to the alley definitely stop by one of their locations. You'll recognize the stores by their pink and purple walls and the big Lola's Shoetique signs. You can also shop Lola's online at
