As one of the city’s prime shopping destinations, with retailers ranging from giant corporate chains like H&M or Forever 21 to the most coveted luxury brands (think Chanel and Saint Laurent), an NYGal could spend all day on the streets of SoHo.
While we’re all familiar with the aforementioned big names, there are also plenty of lesser-known boutiques that are guaranteed to keep your closet on point year-round.

Founded in 2015 by Maria Gangemi, this high-end Italian footwear boutique thoroughly takes their time on every gorgeous item you’ll find in the store. Each piece is skillfully handcrafted by a small group of artisans in Italy.
The label will also drop new, limited edition designs for both men and women every Monday at 10 a.m. to add to their line of quality shoes. A pair will run you between $180 to $350 but should last you for many years to come.
