Despite what the name may imply, sky-high stilettos are not the main draw at Los Feliz's Vamp Shoes. Tailored, colorful (and sometimes slightly retro) heels, sandals, wedges and boots from no-fuss labels like Rachel Comey and Camper fill the clean, minimalist-style space that fits in well with the other shops (Panty Raid, Carol Young | Undesigned) on this stretch of Hillhurst Avenue. 1951 Hillhurst Ave., Los Feliz.
