Coolest Shoes in California offers cool, innovative footwear at its store in the Village of Carlsbad. Our online store is available 24/7.

We began Coolest Shoes in California in August 2008 with just one product – the French designed Glagla. We started selling them at local street fairs as a husband-and-wife venture on weekends while holding down full time jobs during the week. One weekend led to another and before we knew it we were displaying Glaglas at over 40 shows per year. That’s when we decided to open up a retail store in the town we lived so that our customers could more easily find us.

We’ve grown from a husband-and-wife venture to a successful retail store with employees dedicated to making your shopping experience with us a memorable one. We are continually looking for products that offer both comfort and style and we won’t sell a shoe in our store if we won’t wear it ourselves.

In addition to the Glagla, the shoe that started it all, we are very proud to now offer other cool, comfortable, light weight and travel-friendly footwear such as Bernie Mev, Zee Alexis, Vionic with Orthaheel Technology, Aetrex, Telic, Fitflop, NoSox, Softwalk, Rider, Lamo, Clarks... all designed to help keep your feet happier and healthier! For the little ones in your life we offer Chooze, Plae, Riders and Flojos.

We pride ourselves on providing that personal touch that only a sit-and-fit store can provide. And, we are happy to take phone orders if you prefer that over placing an on-line order. We are a real store with real people and we provide real service. Give us a try. We look forward to helping you soon!
