The Best of South Florida: Best Pedicure
Lets face it, South Floridians like to show their toes. But if your tootsies can't feel perfect without a pedicure, then maybe it's time again to be pampered and polished. Here's 7's Shireen Sandoval with the best places to soothe your soles.
(WSVN) -- O.K., lets face it.
There's no part of our body that takes more abuse. Stuffed into thick shoes.
Pounding the pavement day after day. Its no wonder we need to find a treat for our feet.
"I get the best of everything every time i come here."
Now, this is what we call a foot fettish... And you can only find it at our viewers' Number Three Spot - Rio II SoBe in South Beach.
"We're just a perfectionist, we do not rush the clients, we do not rush ourselves."
And you'll be in no rush when you first dip into the toe tub.
"Usually when they come for the first time, they don't seem to want to leave."
That's because RIO II SoBe knows you're more than just a pair of feet.
The staff here works hard when it comes to building relationships.
"They're very friendly."
"They care about their clients."
And after 30 years in the business, they've built up quite a reputation.
"Ialways expect a great service. I have no complaints. everytime I leave, I leave satisfied."
We promise no complaints at our Second Selection - Avante Garde in Coral Gables.
Here, you'll leave footloose and fancy free.
"They do the best job. they're very thorough, very detail oriented, they don't miss a thing."
And we mean they don't miss a thing. We're talking soft music, a little bit of wine, the ultimate relaxation experience.
"We believe we separate ourselves because of the pampering process."
"From the moment you walk in, we want to take care of you, we want to spoil you."
Whatever it takes, your feet will know they've come to the right place.
"The attention that's given to every client is super which is the reason I come here."
That's attention to detail. No bunyon nor callus will survive.
"They file down the calluses and make my feet nice and smooth for summer."
And if your feet could talk?
"The first thing they would say is thank you, thank you because they feel brand new."
"And if your feet really need pampering, then walk on over to pedicure avenue where you'll find our viewers' First Choice, Nails and More of Hollywood."
"Your experience will start with a soak with salt from the dead sea and it ends with a mind blowing foot massage."
"I came in to give them a try and I'm hooked, I'm hooked."
And we understand why. From head to toe, guys and girls agree this place is all about pleasure.
"What's your overall rating? a plus."
"Its more private. It's more welcoming to a man coming into the salon."
But what really makes this salon special are the added amenities.
"The chairs are awesome, gives a nice massage."
"It's fantastic, the massage, the chair, you walk out of here like a new person."
"Well it's very Hollywood, we're in the city of Hollywood so we kind of stole some ideas from Hollywood California."
But the overall experience is very unique to South Florida.
Their attitude is fantastic towards their customers. their work is superb."
