Best Shoe Store


Té Casan
382 W. Broadway, nr. Spring St. 212-584-8000
Té Casan seemed like a chancy experiment when it first opened: a giant Soho store promoting unknown designers, in a city that seemed dedicated to Manolo, Christian, and Jimmy. But two years after its debut, Té Casan has proved itself a consistently interesting, well-priced resource for good-looking, well-made shoes that don’t look like everything else. And while those big designer names are at least $600, Té Casan’s are around $250 to $350. Right now, the split-level space has styles ranging from Fay Baldock’s comfortable, adjustable buckle sandals ($255) to Gaetano Perrone’s killer patent-leather platform pumps ($325). Each style is part of a limited edition of about 30 to 100 pairs per size, ensuring that your footwear individuality is protected.
