This pinball-inspired shop almost exclusively devoted to legwear attracts some of the many out-of-towners streaming between Grand Central and Fifth Avenue. Zany patterns—rainbow-bursting polka dots, zigzags, and hearts—splatter themselves across socks and flip-flops throughout the store, while, for the less foot-fancy shoppers, equally loony backpacks, soccer balls, and fuzzy throws can be found in the rear (as well as a backdoor entrance to neighbor Build-a-Bear). In their Unmatch-a-Batch section, tweens can pull a Punky Brewster and curate a clashing outfit out of anklets, knee-highs, and footies sold as singles; there’s also a tall pillar of socks, called the Sock Rocket, that features rows of three-pair foot fashions.
