This place is amazing. So many great shoes, such personal attention from the owners, such tradition...if you are looking for the real deal this is it. Very affordable but cash only.

Wonderful shop to visit. The owner was a really nice gentleman to speak to and showed me photos of his grandfather as well as some other family photos. Bought myself a pair of espadrilles at a very good price although they did have some better and more comfortable ones at €35 although the basic pair will do for most if... More

After reading other reviews about this shop, I was determined to get there during my short stay in Madrid. Luckily my husband was on board with the plan. We got there just before closing and there were several other customers. The owners were very warm, friendly, and helpful. They are fourth generation in this family business and take a lot... More

This quaint, amazingly stocked espadrilles shop was my first TripAdvisor experience! And SO well worth it! I set out from my hotel in Salamanca and navigated my way over to Antigua Casa Crespo in Malasana, the ultra hip neighborhood. If you blink, you'll miss it because the door is quite small and they don't have big front windows. Step down... More

The shop alone is worth the walking. It is steeped in history and quite beautiful. I have very challenging feet and the woman was very helpful despite my lack of Spanish language. The shoes are great. I got 3 pairs, terrific for traveling. Just remember to take enough cash, although these will be the cheapest quality shoes you can buy!... More

I was staying in Chueca and easily found this spot. The owner was a bit reserved at first, but warmed up to me; I do speak Spanish though. The other patrons were all friendly and we ended up chatting for a long time. The store was amazing and is indeed like stepping into the past. The floor is polished wood... More

The owner was very welcoming and I only speak basic Spanish and she doesn't speak English at all. We were still able to communicate and she told me this is family business and she's 4th generation running the store. The shoes are all unique and prices were great! I bought this cute striped espadrilles with sling-back for €15!! I would... More

It's hard to describe the shopping experience at Casa Crespo. The moment you encounter the shop front, you know you are in a different era. The sign, the door, the shop.. everything is steeped in tradition, history and a time when craftsmanship was acquired by laboring over a number of years. Señor Garbayo was an excellent host and we had... More

I'd heard so much hype about this spot that it was on our 'must do' list. Of course it's not that easy to find so I suggest just taking a cab because we wasted so much time on public transportation and then walking and walking and walking. When we finally arrived of course they were closed and we waited and... More

Shoes are great from huge selection- colors and styles. Must try-on for tighter fit. Expected to loosen. My heel is narrow so I opted for the slingback. Even stopped on the park bench on my way back to the hotel to switch out from my fav boots to these slightly raised slingback espadrilles. I finally have found them!!!! Btw the... More

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
