Upper East Side moms and their downtown-minded daughters trek to this footwear mini-chain—a neighborhood mainstay since 1976—for their fix of traditional and contemporary shoe styles, like demure heels perfect for a jaunt to the Hamptons and trendy wedges made for the school semi-formal. Founder Eric Mudick stocks his small, pastel-painted boutiques with a good sampling of designer styles, including Cynthia Rowley's red leather slingbacks, called the Runway Wedge, and her Grecian-style Tabitha flats. There are also plenty of more conservative offerings, like Enrico Antinori's sensible pumps in seasonal prints, as well as Mullen's classic kitten heels. Younger girls gravitate toward the swank, Indian inspired slippers by CYD and Eric's own line of ballet flats.


Season-end clearance sales in May and September.
