"We kept seeing new and fascinating high heels in magazines and on the catwalk – but at the end of the day they simply remained out of reach. Not because you could not actually have worn them. But because Germany just did not have the right kind of stores. So we would have had to go back and forth to Paris or New York. Or simply open a store of our own."
These three elements combine in the store that we opened in November 2009, and that has profoundly thrilled female footwear aficionados ever since. On Sophienstrasse, in the vibrant heart of downtown Berlin, the new SANCTUM store has started luring she-customers with very special merchandise. Here, “true high fashion” is more than just a sales pitch. It is a vision.
SANCTUM stocks high heels – and high heels only. And not just any heels. Sinuous shapes, stately stilettos, glamorous design or red soles alone will hardly do. Each shoe has to be a work of art. A masterpiece of the designer who conceived of it. A statement on the foot of the woman who wears it.
Our spectrum includes exotic and extravagant shoes along with exclusive, more subdued models. What they all have in common is a heartfelt and extraordinary design quality down to the last detail – and of course sinfully high heels.
