Product Guide


  • Women's Shoes


This venue is closed.

With clean lines and cool lighting, this attractive shoebox-sized store is so small that sometimes the stockroom overtakes the showroom with towers of black and white boxes. Four wicker chairs occupy most of the space, pushing the footwear to the front window and the glass shelving suspended from the ceiling. The shoes—loafers, boots, and slides cobbled mostly by Rapax and a few other small Italian makers—are country club classics: sensible without being dowdy, expensive without being ostentatious, and stylish without being trendy. In other words, perfect for the pedicured tootsies of an Upper East Side mom sipping a latte at the neighborhood Starbucks.


End-of-season sales in January and August offer 50 to 70 percent off.
