A Wicker Park favorite, this den of style houses shoes for the professional hipster.. The Scene The interior is just as cool as the shoes that fill it. Paintings from local artists and groovy mirrors adorn the walls, and the lounging couches range from stark minimalism to what look like worn antiques from your grandma's living room. The loyal clientele (once you shop here, you'll be loyal, too) is made up of everyone from the typical post-college professional to the ultra-hip fashionista.
The Goods You'll find everything from fun plastic flip-flops by Sanuk to pumps decorated with feathers to leather Robert Wright uppers. The one common theme: The shoes are high quality and very stylish. Look for Ghost, Kenneth Cole, Bronx, Greater LA, BCBG, Oliver and more. The inventory changes almost daily at the beginning of each season. The store never reorders a shoe, so once it's gone, it's gone for good.
This isn't exactly where you go to find the best bargains, but if you're looking for the hottest shoe styles, and money is no object, this is your store. The sale rack usually is pretty well stocked, however. Definitely worth a look. The staff is friendly and helpful, if not a little hovering at times.
