A. Testoni’s shoes and leather collections are a smart alternative to similar wares by neighbors Gucci and Prada. Housed in a bright white box of a store, A. Testoni’s goods are varied in color and shape, but all retain a sleek look that combines classic and modern styles. Stacked along one wall, the men’s line spans sturdy loafers, shiny black wingtips, and several pairs of smooth leather sneakers. Shoes are cut long and are often pointy, but the colors remain traditional. Across the aisle, women’s stilettos and pumps come in classic silhouettes and simple colors, with embellishments like leather flowers and gold-beaded trim. Similarly appointed totes, clutches, and briefcases sit against the wall in small cut-out shelves, along with a well-edited selection of belts for men. Since A. Testoni is already a popular brand overseas, you’ll see plenty of Europeans here, in addition to Americans drawn in by the pretty, geometric window displays.Sales
