There’s not much that’s petit about this dazzling Eighth Street shoe store. Its side walls are silver, its back wall siren red, and its footwear brazenly funky: checks, polka dots, sequins, and faux fur adorn the boldly designed men’s and women’s shoes, displayed on pedestals and sconce-like wall shelves and made from leather, velvet, and reptile skins dyed every color of the rainbow. High-end stylemakers like Roberto Cavalli, Gianfranco Ferre, and Guiseppe Zanotti provide the bulk of the merchandise, while big, studded sunglasses by Christian Dior, Stella McCartney, and Versace make perfect accessories. The store launched its own avant-garde shoe line, O2, in 2004. The aesthetic is haute-couture-meets-street, with a certain hip-hop bling sensibility and prices to match. But these shoes are so well made, they’ll undoubtedly outlast their trends, and might even make it around to the next time hot pink mukluks are in style.


Bi-annual sales on out-of-season items, from the end of December through May and from August through the beginning of December, with buy-one-get-one-free shoes.

Bridal Shoes

Brides who don't mind letting their footwear compete with their wedding gown will love the brazen offerings at this downtown shop. Neutral options include white pumps in velvet and satin. The majorly high heels, blingy accents, and eye-catching colors come courtesy of European designers like Roberto Cavalli and Gianfranco Ferre.
