Best Affordable Shoes

  • Shoe Market

    160 N. 6th St., nr. Bedford Ave., Williamsburg 718-388-8495

    If you’re just looking to chase trends and don’t mind limping home at night, opt for lower Broadway’s cheap-shoe trifecta of Nine West, Aldo, and Steve Madden. But if your budget is contingent on quality, consider this unassuming shoe shop off Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg. The selection of about 50 brands covers your city-shoe needs, generally for under $200 a pair: For weekend brunch or wandering the Flea, oxfords and sandals from Frye and Bronx. For nights out, wedges and espadrilles by Dolce Vita and 80%20. For inclement weather, galoshes from Hunter and Aigle. And for party nights, serious platforms by Jeffrey Campbell and Senso. The men’s side is no less stocked, from New Balance sneakers and Toms slip-ons to Fred Perry lace-ups.
