“There’s no other store like this in Bethesda,” says Tony Zelaya, who has been in the shoe business for 27 years.

When his wife, Fabiana, moved her shop, Daisy Too, out of the adjoining space last year, Zelaya took over the entire space with his shoe store.

Zelaya prides himself on customer service, good prices and an array of up-to-the-minute stylish shoes—from the classics to innovative styles from designers such as Chie Mihara and United Nude.

For a classic look, try the metallic pump pictured at left by Betsey Johnson for $175. Or these sexy stilettos by Luichiny ($100), with a decorative heel and black satin bows.
