On Sale: “We have remnants of our summer sale from the end of the season in the back of the store,” said GM Kenny Rubenstein. “The majority of the sale is on dress shoes for more than $500. We have found that at the moment, the customer wants a shoe that’s dressy, but can also be worn with jeans. Slip-ons are popular.”
