Ash

Critics' pick

This Italian brand’s U.S. flagship, just off the main drag in Soho, offers edgy looks that could have been snapped up on a European vacation. Inside the high-ceilinged, brick-walled space you’ll find a range of on-trend wedge sneakers ($195–$295), including bold-hued Velcro-strap styles ($235), retro-inspired low-tops ($195–$250) and buckled cap-toe pairs ($150–$250). Rounding out the women’s line are camo-print studded slipper flats ($175) and distressed metallic motorcycle boots ($350–$425), while men can try on a handful of bold but casual looks such as spike-studded slip-ons ($260).

Nolita

Dolce Vita

Critics' pick

This sprightly brand has long been a destination for on-trend shoes without an exorbitant price tag. The flagship moved into a larger space last year, so there’s even more room to peruse colorful styles from both the namesake collection (two-toned heels with gold toe accents are $159; laser-cut flat T-strap sandals are $109) and its lower-priced diffusion line, DV (diamond-perforated oxfords with contrast soles are $79). Once you’ve stylishly outfitted your tootsies, you’ll find clothing and accessories to complete your look, from both the house brand and kindred breezy labels such as June Leather Jackets and Black Denim.

Fiorentini + Baker

This footwear and furniture shop is the first in the U.S. But don’t get too attached to the 1950s-era furniture since the stock rotates each season. Over on the shoe side, snag kicks crafted with vegetable-dyed leather and vintage fabrics, such as colorful strappy sandals ($400), unisex textured leather boots with zippers ($485–$545), men’s suede loafers ($340) and women’s cowboy-style heeled tall boots ($690), which are part of a collaboration with Anna Sui. You’ll also discover a small assortment of accessories, like thin studded-leather and suede belts ($195), and outerwear, such as velvet jackets ($500–$550).

Florsheim

Dudes, boot up! Engineer-inspired cap-toe boots ($175) and lace-up wing tips ($150) exemplify what this 122-year-old men’s brand is all about: durability, style and comfort. From polished leather pull-ons outfitted with elastic side panels ($120) to casual suede chukkas ($110), there’s a style for every gent at this modern-meets-retro store.

Kurt Geiger

Critics' pick

Thanks to the arrival of this U.K. accessories brand in New York, we can now pick up the trendy shoes that have been spotted on both Kate Middleton and Rihanna. Women’s styles include wild lip-print wedges ($185), colorblock pumps with sculptural heels ($335) and hidden-wedge, high-top sneakers ($170), while funky standouts for guys range from suede loafers ($300) to studded tennis shoes ($200). Among the lustworthy accoutrements are heart-shaped sunglasses ($90), faux-snakeskin clutches ($110) and laser-cut iPhone cases ($30).

West Village

Macy's Herald Square

It may not be as glamorous as New York’s other famous stores, but for sheer breadth of stock, the 34th Street behemoth is hard to beat. You won’t find exalted labels here, though—midpriced fashion and designers’ diffusion lines for all ages are its bread and butter, along with all the big beauty names. Fun fact: Herein lies the largest shoe department in the world (63,000 square feet, to be exact) so chances of leaving empty handed are slim. Brave the constant crowd to shop suede and lyrca over-the-knee boots by Kenneth Cole ($159) and equestrian-like rain wellies from Dirty Laundry ($59). While there’s no shortage of trendy options—given tables dedicated to Jessica Simpson, Charles David and Dolce Vita—eternally popular styles, like men’s Timberland roll tops ($120), are just as nice.

Matt Bernson

Fresh from creating popular footwear for Urban Outfitters, Scoop and Madewell house lines (as well as his own label sold in high-end boutiques), this accessories designer opens his first stand-alone store. Bernson’s friendly vizsla pup greets patrons in the shop, which is eclectically decorated with a salvaged waved-glass register, vintage fossilized-wood stools, surfboards and black dome light fixtures. Take a seat on the leather couch or barrel-back chairs in the lounge, which overlooks the shop. Chic selections include ombré patent-leather flats ($169), cowboy boots embellished with floral cutouts ($335) and Chelsea booties updated with cool, contrast panels ($259),

Rime

Critics' pick

Sneaker fiends will feel right at home in either location of this friendly shop, which offers a spectrum of pavement-ready kicks to satisfy both serious collectors and casual comfort seekers. Women can make a statement in Alicia Keys x Reebok leather wedge sneakers ($90) or keep things basic with classic Converse Jack Purcell low-tops ($55–$75), while guys can brighten up their look with geometric-print canvas Vans ($100) or Nike woven-upper styles ($80). Limited-run collaborations are a store specialty; we recently spotted Puma by Mihara Yasuhiro Pop Art slip-ons ($120) and Adidas by Stella McCartney mesh trainers ($120–$160). 157 Smith St between Bergen and Wyckoff Sts, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn (718-797-0675) • 167 E 87th St between Lexington and Third Aves (212-837-2375) • rimenyc.com
