Nancy Geist’s footwear shares shop space with Easel, an office, everyday, and eveningwear line of worsted skirt-suits, casual cashmere knits and ultra-feminine frocks that marry well with Geist’s sexy-yet-sensible shoes. Mid-height heels and mules are arrayed on a raised subway grate inside the white-walled space, sending a clear message: These shoes are indeed made for walking. And that’s just what Nancy Geist customers do, since her fanciful, comfortable designs allow women to hoof it all day and remain pain-free well into the night--no easy feat for a stylish slipper. A classically trained sculptor, Geist has an obvious feel for function and form, yet her shoes show an artist’s eye for ingenious detail:Pumps are trimmed in pink patent leather, stacked-heel slides are laser-cut in a leather lacework, stiletto sandals show off croc accents, and mid-calf boots feature sheer organza ankle ties. Each pair is handmade in Italy and the collections are limited edition, so you’re unlikely to spy the same shoe on another straphanger. Plus, no matter what the runways say, Geist always stocks a selection of round, square and pointed toes, following her own muse--and making chic shoes that help her customers keep up with theirs.

Bridal Shoes

The daring bride looking to attract attention from the ground up will do well with the eye-catching footwear at Geist’s shop, where a metallic suede peep-toe D’Orsay bedecked with Swarovski crystals, floral embroidered French silk Mary Janes, or silver-and-gold strappy sandals will make for a dazzling walk down the aisle.
