Sombreria de Herederos de J. Rusi
Here’s an entry for the guys as well as the girls: visitors to Córdoba will notice that the sombrero Cordobese (which looks sort of like a flattened-out bowler hat) is worn by locals of both genders during the annual feria and is a piece of attire for which the city is famous. In order to properly blend in, then, pop in to Sombreria de Herederos de J.Rusi and have one made to order out of the highest quality materials.

Geox is a smart Italian shoe shop – zapateria, to use the wonderful Spanish word – selling footwear for both males and females aged 0 and up. Geox’s sharp, uncluttered interior makes buying shoes as painless as possible for those who dislike the experience, while offering plenty of styles from which to choose for those who actually enjoy it. It’s at the northern end of the city, a good 20-minute walk from the river and the Mosque-Cathedral, which will give you chance to wear in your new shoes on the way back to the attractions.
