Covert Shoe Lab (CLOSED)

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Much like the eclectic mash-up of stores that exist under the Limelight Marketplace’s roof, this footwear joint within the Limelight is home to a hodgepodge of men’s and women’s U.S. and international shoe brands. Once you enter, Victorian-style street lamps and ornate iron park benches lead you to a floor-to-ceiling lightbox showcasing a shoe collector’s dream closet. Try on Warrior Footwear canvas kicks from China ($54), Grenson leather brogue-style boots from the U.K. ($379), Brooklyn-brand Pony low-top leather sneakers ($69) and California-cool SeaVees desert-inspired boots ($175). This store is also a hot spot for hard-to-find designer collaborations, such as Lacoste Legends x Sneaker Freaker midtop sneakers ($145) and Generic Surplus x Wood Wood canvas lace-up kicks ($99).
