The Shoe Box Warehouse Sale is Smoking!

29 January 2013

The Shoe Box, known to Manhattanites as a trio of designer shoe boutiques located along the stretch of Third Avenue, has been open since 1954, with stores not only on Third Avenue, but also on Long Island and in Boca Raton, Florida. Earlier this year The Shoe Box on Third Avenue and 34th Street hosted a Warehouse Sale with deep discounts on designer footwear. Since then, the 34th Street location has closed for renovations (they will soon re-open as a Vince Camuto boutique) and moved their stock up to their 77th Street and Third Avenue location, where they have slashed prices even further and are currently underway with their own Warehouse Sale with 40% off already marked down prices.

When I visited the Warehouse Sale this morning around 11AM, the sale had only been underway for an hour, yet The Shoe Box’s pleasant saleswoman reported that she had sold a great deal of merchandise thus far, even selling out of such winter accessories as their collection of Vince Camuto hats. Rest assured shoppers, she further went on to state that The Shoe Box will be restocking later today with additional designers and added supply.

The Shoe Box’s winter top sellers (all of which were by Vince Camuto, the brand that dominates the sale selection) were on hand today and available for ultra low prices. These included the Vince Camuto Brown Kabo Boot with a distressed leather toe ($99, orig. $239), the VC Signature (Camuto’s higher end line) Warren Boot ($96, orig. $350), and the VC Signature Waris Boot with studded embellishment ($120, orig. $450).

There was a nice assortment in every size selection, sizes 8 and 8.5 of course being the majority. For the most part, many styles repeated in every size section. Some standouts among smoking flats (another fabulous winter trend) included the BCBG Fernando Smoking Flat ($45, orig. $90), the Giuseppe Zanotti Studded Smoking Flat ($275, orig. $930), and the quirky Marc By Marc Jacobs Blue and Black Sequin Smoking Flat ($48, orig. $250).

Dressy booties have definitely been another shoe trend of the season. Some fantastic choices in this category was the Vince Camuto Amoby Bootie ($48, orig. $139), and the Vince Camuto Muse Bootie in either black cow hair or distressed brown leather ($48, orig. $139).

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the rarely discounted Toms Suede Botas ($15, orig. $69) and Minnetonka Moccasins ($18, orig. $45) as they are scarcely scattered around the store.

Don’t miss the small collection of Stella McCartney shoes on the front table by the entrance with her Black Leather Platforms with Wood Heels ($119).

As far as accessories go, there were a few Vince Camuto bags for $49 that included his Red Jennah Crossbody Bag and his Kaitlyn Clutch in green, blue, and red, as well as a selection of his cozy scarves, all in dark colors, for $29. 

Overall, even though the selection at The Shoe Box wasn’t overwhelming, I was pleasantly surprised by their incredible discounts. I mean, Toms for $15? Marc by Marc Jacobs for $48? Yes, please!

    By the way, I have noticed they have a VINCE CAMUTO “We Are Hiring” sign in the window. Go check them out if you are looking for a job in retail.
