You maybe in for some money:

BEWARE OF POOR QUALITY COPIES OR IMITATIONS
To make certain that your shoes are the genuine French Sole brand - follow these simple instructions:
Check the sole of the shoes. They should be marked "Made in Italy / France or Spain" only.
Inside the shoes, under your foot should be a label with the French Sole logo embroidered onto it or the innersoles should be embossed in gold with the French Sole logo as appearing on the homepage of this website.
PLEASE inform us of any shoes bearing our famous name that do not confrom to this format. If you supply information leading to the prosecution of violators of our EEC Trademarked name, we offer a reward of £1000.

Hi,
If you like ballet-style flats, pay a visit to Repetto.
Their flagship store is on rue de la Paix, and although their primary focus is on dancing shoes, they also sell a range of beautifully made shoes for outdoor wear.

A shoe post! Great. Planning a trip to Paris with teenage daughters; any good shoe shops for teenagers? Or tips on the best shops for them?

Tulips, if I remember, there were lots of shoe shops and clothing shops along Blvd St-Michel from Blvd St-Germaine to the Luxembourg Gardens, that is geared towards the young, and young at heart. The prices varies between stores, naturally, but I'm sure she'll find something.

I really shouldn't be telling you this since I despise female shoe obsession, but there is a street in Paris that consists of 100% shoe stores, where all of the wholesalers sell retail. It is rue Meslay, which runs parallel to boulevard Saint Martin. You take the metro to Strasbourg-Saint Denis and pick up the street just at the start of boulevard Sébastopol. For hundreds of meters it is just shoes shoes shoes.

ndkatie -

Am coming late to this thread, and you may already be enroute to Paris. While most of the shoes I've purchased in Paris have been from stores near the Carrefour de la Croix Rouge in the 6th or from one of the major department stores, we ran across a street in the Marais last May that is absolutely brimming with both men's and women's shoe stores. It's the rue de Meslay in the northern part of the 3rd. The street runs from the rue St Martin to the rue du Temple just off the place de la République. Since you and your sister love shoes, and you're staying in the 11th which is not far away, it may be worth a visit.

there are a few stores on Rue de la Verriere where I and my sister cleared out a few years ago - if I recall correctly, the prices ranged from 60 to 150 euro per pair.
