While touting yet another shoe store on 8th Street may seem a tad cliche, Blu stands out because of its stunning selection of high-heeled footwear—not to mention its sexy saleswomen, who strut effortlessly around in six-inch stilettos. If you're shopping for comfort, keep on walking; but those in the market for sequin-encrusted sandals, snakeskin pumps, or rhinestone-studded suede boots, however, will want to dawdle a while. The offshoot of the much larger Petit Peton located just a few doors east, this sliver of a shop is devoid of decoration, which allows the shoes to shine. A few small leather handbags complement the footwear, which is made up of names like Claudio Merazzi, Pari & Pari, Duel and Seline. For those who aren't label snobs, the outrageous styles are guaranteed to impress, even if you'd only dare to wear them out in public New Year's Eve. (Whatever happens in the privacy of your own bedroom is beyond the calendar's confines.)
