Last week Ms. Concrete died and went to shoe heaven.
Selfridges & Co, the UK-based fine goods department store (founded by a Midwesterner related to the Marshall Field’s chain), debuted their all-new “Shoe Galleries” at the flagship Oxford Street location in London. This assortment of galleries showcases mid-range brands and private labels to high-end designers Yves Saint Laurent, Giuseppe Zanotti, Casadei and fashionista favorite Christian Louboutin.
Exclusives are abundant, so don’t think this is just a cookie-cutter amusement park for average shoe lovers and fad followers. Rare releases from international couturiers like Nicholas Kurtwood prove the buyers for the Shoe Galleries have the trend setters and influencers in mind.
The Shoe Galleries at Selfridges are so well-rounded that a sneakerhead even gets a play. A brightly-lit nook offers Nike, Puma, Adidas and more in the color combinations and textures that hipsters crave.
The new arrival to Selfridges is worthy of all the hype. Nine out of ten double deckers in Central London boast an advertisment for the 35,000 square foot shoe space and trust every hotel concierge knows where to send their fashionable guests.
A Concrete Choice: The Shoe Galleries at Selfridges. Heaven on Earth for any world traveler who believes in staying DIPPED.
