This third-generation, family-owned business has operated as a specialty store for cowboy boots and shoe repair since the fifties; today it also offers mainstream, commuter-friendly footwear, though they no longer perform repairs. The shop’s distinguished name is a nod to owner John Kyriannis—Kyriannis translates to “Lord John” in Greek—who favors a practical selection of cushy walking shoes, flat boots, moccasins, and loafers in his frills-free store. Duds from comfort-minded brands like Merrell and Birkenstock cater to pavement-pounding locals and foot-weary residents from the nearby NYU Medical Center—students receive a 10 percent discount. A small selection of orthopedic inserts, shoehorns, and polish, and turquoise jewelry befitting the lingering Western theme, is also available.
