World's Best Bespoke Souvenirs

by Colleen Clark

Heels in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is one of the best places in the world for fast-and-cheap tailoring, but to put your best foot forward in your new duds, you'll also need to make a stop at LIII LIII Couture Shoes, a bespoke cobbler that's been in business for almost 70 years. The shop is not known for its ambience—be prepared for an avalanche of pumps, wedges, and sandals. LIII LIII has hundreds of samples at the ready for inspiration, but creative shoe fetishists can sketch their own designs or bring a photo of those spiky stilettos that just stomped down the runway. Yes, they will make you a pair of basic black heels, but no one will bat an eye if you opt for purple crocodile skin embellished with rhinestones. Shoes are generally ready to be fitted a week after ordering. Can't wait that long? Get a handbag instead—it won't require a fitting, and they'll ship it directly to your home.
