Scottsdale’s Shoe Upgrade
Barney’s New York opened a new two-level, 60,000-sq.-ft. store in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Oct. 15, marking the company’s ninth flagship. When it comes to the footwear assortment, the retailer was betting on basics this season for the women’s shoe salon, focusing on core designers including Lanvin, Givenchy, Christian Louboutin and Balenciaga, said Lisa Park, VP and DMM of women’s shoes.
“While you won’t find any styles in Scottsdale that aren’t represented in our Madison Avenue store, the selection has been tweaked. We wanted to highlight the newest looks within the assortment,” explained Park.
Boots, she added, have been particularly strong this season.
“Boots have become their own category. There are boots for every occasion, from flat to high-heeled, ankle-length to over-the-knee, classic, Western, rugged to dressy.”
