The best shoes in SF! Period!.
Yes, Rabat is fantastic. I feel very lucky to have such an amazing shoe store in my neighborhood. The shoes are much more interesting than anything you will find at Union Square. I went to a holiday party in my new shoes from Rabat and at least 10 women were dying to know where I snagged them! Shop early and shop often- the best styles sell out quickly- especially if you are a size 8 like me. Oh yeah- the staff is always super nice- the store is really cozy and the girls are very friendly, honest, and not too pushy.
These three Bay Area boutiques specialize in name-brand clothes and shoes.. In Short One word: chic. From the second you touch your fingers to the rack or pick up that open-toe slide, you know you're dealing with haute stuff. Michael Stars Original Tees, Margaret O'Leary sweaters, Betsey Johnson dresses, HOBO International bags, Camper shoes and boots, Via Mya strapy sandals--the selection of beautiful, unique items is irresistible. Oh, and girls bring your boys--they can check out the funky selection of men's shoes while you're playing fashion show.

The store has a lot going for it, except for the staff. Don't expect to get any type of greeting, or much less an acknowledgement, even though the staff looks right at you when you walk in.
