Shoe boutiques in New York

If you are shopping for new shoes, New York is the perfect destination.  Partially because real state is so expensive in NYC, there are fewer large department stores and more specialized boutiques.  Sure the city has Macy’s, Bloomingdales, Barney’s, Lord & Taylor, etc., but many other big stores do not venture into the city.
Shoe Boutiques in NYC
The city has many distinct sections that have trendy consumers as well as trendy boutique owners.  Sometimes finding a fascinating shoe boutique in New York is as simple as stepping into Soho, Greenwhich Village, Nolita, etc.

Kith NYC: Established in 2011, KITH operates on two planes - a multifunctional lifestyle brand for both men and women, and a progressive retail establishment.

They offer an array of premium product, ranging from their own in-house label to a curated selection of multi-brand apparel and footwear.   KITH was founded by Ronnie Fieg, a prominent figure in the footwear industry, who has over twenty years of hands-on experience. Born and raised in Queens, Fieg has been involved with footwear since becoming a stock boy at New York-based franchise David Z. at age 12.  With steadfast perseverance, he rose through the ranks from floor salesman to assistant manager to eventually becoming head buyer.  Conceptualizing KITH as an extension of himself, Fieg seeks to shift the current landscape of fashion, while operating under a personal philosophy of giving the consumer more than what they pay for.
