Truckloads of shoes, booties and boots can be had at the Shoe-Inn warehouse sale which kicked off this morning inside Gotham Hall in Midtown. There was no line and the massive space was fairly calm.
As you walk in, you’re required to check in your coat… Once inside, you’ll see the main area where you’ll find tons of shoes in all sorts of styles displayed on tables and organized by size. Underneath the tables are even more shoes in boxes so make sure to look there as well. Prices for shoes start at $19.99 and go up to $99.99. Labels include, Michael Kors (black patent pumps for $99.99), Tory Burch (espadrilles at $79.99), See by Chloe (clogs at $99.99), Stella McCartney, Ralph Lauren, Stuart Weitzman and more.
This main section is well lit unlike the area against the walls where the boots are displayed. The other problem is there weren’t any mirrors this morning… (I overheard a few shoppers complaining about it – difficult to tell what something looks like on your foot).
As for boots and booties, there’s plenty on offer with prices starting at $39.99 and going up to $249.99. Here’s a few styles that caught my eye: Cole Haan knee-high boots at $149.99; Costume National booties for $179.99; Marc by Marc Jacobs booties tagged at $229.99; Stuart Weitzman boots for $199.99; See by Chloe booties for $198.99. With a few months left of winter, it might be worth investing in a pair of Pucci moon boots ( $79.99) which they had lots in size 38 and 39. Hunter boots were priced at $59.99 and there were quite a few women looking at Uggs (ranging in price from $59 to $159.99).
Also on offer were handbags (Marc by Marc Jacobs, See by Chloe, Rebecca Minkoff, and more) and wallets near the entrance. The sale goes through this Sunday. Sale organizers tell me that they will be restocking daily…
Where/When: 1356 Broadway Gotham Hall (at 36th & Broadway). January 4 to 8, Wed-Fri (9-7p), Sat-Sun (10-5p).
