On a Lower East Side street crowded with pint-size specialty shops, Sole pairs women’s shoes imported from Italy with textured, oversize handbags ranging from a leather slouch bag with ruffles and pearl-drop detailing to a soft, buttery woven suede bag with braided handles. Calf-length, cappuccino-colored leather boots, zebra-skin loafers, and ornately beaded heels in shades like eggplant, fire-engine red, and pistachio run the perimeter of the shop, while round, floral-print chairs anchor the airy interior. Shoes from labels like Renato Angi, Moda di Fausto, Giorgia B, Caravelle, and Desmo sit in orderly rows, and in cold weather, open-toe strappy heels and suede lattice flats give way to lambskin gloves and silk print scarves. New visitors to the shop make a beeline for the sizable sales rack in the back corner, which frequently offers items for two-thirds off.
