For women who can imagine but never actually find the perfect shoe (every woman, in other words), TUPLI makes dreams come true. The New York company can create virtually any shoe from scratch, according to clients' specs. In a second-floor atelier on Madison Avenue, a consultant takes a mold of your feet, then sketches until the picture matches your fantasy strappy sandal. Prices begin at about $600 and go up, up, up, based on whether, say, you want to add diamonds and semiprecious stones. $ At 780 Madison Ave.; 212-472-2576; www.tupli.com.
$ Establishment accepts no charge/credit cards or accepts cards other than the American Express Card.
