Nestled in one of Canberra’s chicest enclaves, Escala Shoes is truly a hidden gem.
Owned and operated by tastemaker and national treasure Gail Lubbock for the past 22 years, Escala is proud to present high-quality merchandise sourced from makers across Italy, Spain, Germany and Austria. Think: luxurious leather goods, the latest shoe trends from Europe and elegant accessories.
Bringing European accessories direct to Canberra, Gail’s discerning taste is apparent in Escala’s selection of curated designs, with styles to suit every taste and budget.
“Even in these more difficult times, we continue to provide excellent service in one-on-one appointments so that our lovely clients can be warmly and well shod in beautiful boots, soft loafers for inside wear and comfy runners for when they venture outside,” says Gail, adding that for those dreading winter, Escala has cashmere lined leather gloves, wool and cashmere wraps and scarves and snuggly knitwear.
In the era of COVID, Escala’s warm customer service has been a light in the darkness, with one-on-one appointments made via email, though Gail adds that with the gradual easing of restrictions, Escala will open with reduced hours across Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays—extending as necessary.
All customer and staff areas in-store are cleaned and sanitised regularly, with special attention paid to the seating, counters and Eftpos machine. Customers are also asked to sanitise their hands upon entry, with physical distancing mandatory and only three clients allowed in-store at any one time.
