Favorite Spots for Shoe Shopping on the Upper West Side

Posted by in Apparel, Clothing, Shopping

As the weather warms up, I find myself getting excited about the change of wardrobe and doing some shoe shopping on the Upper West Side. Sometimes just the thrill of bringing out those sundresses and sandals that have been packed away is enough. But often I am tempted to go out on a bit of a spring shopping spree. And what is one of the most exciting updates? Shoes, of course! So fun to shop for because they don’t require waiting for a changing room and getting undressed and redressed countless times. (And if you gained a couple pounds during hibernation season, so what?)

Couldn’t you use a new pair of strappy sandals to spice up that floaty frock? Or perhaps a comfy pair of classic flats to take over for those winter boots as your “go-to” to wear with skinny jeans? Just another excuse to do some more shoe shopping on the Upper West Side!  Maybe it’s a new pair of flip-flops you need, to replace that beat-up smelly pair from last year? Whatever your passion may be, your needs can be met on the Upper West Side. When I get that urge for something new in terms of footwear, here are a few of my favorite spots for shoe shopping on the Upper West Side.
