Situated off the bustling Bedford Avenue strip, Shoe Market is a nerd-chic tribute to the greatest hits in footwear from the 1950s through the 1980s. A spin-off of the Technicolor women’s boutique Mini Mini Market around the corner, this one-room space is decked out in decidedly darker tones, with wares displayed on shelves surrounding a mod living-room set. You won’t find pointy toes or stilettos here. Instead, the owners pride themselves on offering styles that are as functional as they are comfortable. Top sellers include classic Frye boots, Sven clogs, and a fun range of Tretorn trainers for guys. More contemporary looks can be found among the children’s selections; like baby Converse All-Stars and bedazzled saddle shoes.
