The placard outside this just-off-Fifth shoe boutique reads "Too Much is Just Not Enough." It's an ethic designer Beverly Feldman's wares unquestionably embody. While the occasional T-shirt or skirt can be found, shoppers focus on the large selection of densely decorated, flashy, and party-fancy footwear—like the Metropolis stiletto, which (like many of Feldman's styles) comes in multiple versions, from simpler, solid tones to livelier, animal-inspired patterns and full-on, stone-studded extravagance. Just as wild as the shoes, the bags push the line between fashionable and gaudy; grande-dame Upper East Siders love the floral tote, while their daughters are beguiled by the matching shoe/bag combinations. There is plenty of room for the new-shoe-stroll around the red velvet sofas and zebra-print chairs. Tall mirrors help confirm that the bag does indeed match the shoes.
Feldman's festive collection of eye-catching bridal shoes isn't as splashy as the rest of her designs, but it still provides a fun, fashionable twist. You'll find strappy sandals with Swarovski crystals, satin slingbacks with rhinestone buckles, and open-toe satin pumps with grosgrain bows.
