La Chatte Bottée, c'est quoi?
Nika and Carole invite all ladies, once every month, to have a look at their carefully chosen collection of vintage shoes, with drinks and more - a must. Born out of a need for fabulous vintage shoes and a certain disdain for cookie-cutter styles offered by major retailers, best friends Nika and Carole created La Chatte Bottée, a business dedicated to offering unique vintage shoes and boots from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Armed with spot-on taste for trends, the ladies scoured the earth and hand picked the perfect mix of styles to suit any discerning girls taste.

How would you describe Mtl's style?
Varies by neighbourhoods. Plateau is different from St-Catherine from HoMa from Rosemont… know what I mean? We're fashion forward without being fashion victims. We like nice things but we're cheap.
What's your favourite expression?
“Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” Or even, “I never think that people die. They just go to department stores.” Respectively, Oscar Wilde and Andy Warhol.
