I've had several enquiries about where to buy flamenco shoes in Australia.
Of course, you can always order from us! Just select "Australian auctions" in the drop down box and you'll see a list of all the international sellers who ship to Australia, as well as local sellers.
However, if you want to deal direct with someone locally, there are a few options.
I've been happy with my shoes from Salvio's in Sydney. They developed the shoe in conjunction with a Sydney flamenco school. It's based on the Gallardo flamenco shoe and it's a good, solid design. They generally have black suede shoes in stock in a range of sizes, but will make them up in the suede or leather colour of your choice. My only criticism is that they don't use enough tacks, so the sound isn't that good. Apparently they had complaints about the nails scratching floors - but the solution to that is to make sure the tacks are properly overlapped and hammered flat, like roof tiles, not to use less.
I recently discovered Gypsy Shoes, also in Sydney. Felicity's shoes are more expensive, but they are custom made to fit your feet.
Sansha makes a flamenco shoe which is stocked by several dance shops around Australia. It looks OK, but I've never tried it so can't vouch for its quality. As I've said before, please don't let a dance store sell you character shoes or chorus shoes! They are absolutely useless for flamenco, because they're much too flexible.
