BUS STOP shoe boutique is all about sharing the love with our shoe community here in Philadelphia and beyond. We visit NYC often and are always drawn to the allure of a New York City shoe store to experience its atmosphere, creative design choices, and always unique & forward-thinking aesthetic.

We really LOVE shoes and we love shopping local, buying local, eating local, and supporting our local economy and other small businesses, especially Black-owned and women-owned small businesses in Philly. And on all of our domestic & international travels, especially while hanging out a hop, skip, & a jump away in NYC, we always support small businesses.

.

We're a small business with a big vision. Our love of SMALL is BIG and it runs deep in everything that we do. Our love of designer shoes, ethical & sustainable brands, and beautiful innovative design is eternal. When we're looking to escape our beloved Philly and take a quick road trip, we hop on the Greyhound bus to NYC. What better place is there to be inspired, discover something new, & satisfy our eternal love of shopping and independent restaurants & boutiques than New York City?

Our absolute favorite activities to do when we travel to NYC to designer showrooms and buying shows like FFANY, Coterie, Liberty Fairs, & (Capsule) is pick the best lunch spot in town & window shop for shoes, clothing, art, and a dose of inspiration. There's nothing like the energy in New York. From Manhattan's SOHO, NOHO, Tribeca, Nolita, Greenwich Village, the East Village, to Dumbo, Williamsburg & Park Slope in Brooklyn, we always find the best stores, cafes, bars, restaurants, and picturesque streets that surely satisfy.

The BEST 10 SHOE STORES in NYC:

.

1 / KITH

Established in 2011, KITH operates on two planes - a multifunctional lifestyle brand for men, women, and kids, as well as a progressive retail establishment. Our five brick-and-mortar flagship stores were designed in partnership with Snarkitecture, as we push the boundaries to deliver customers a completely unique experience. We offer an array of premium products, ranging from our own in-house label to a curated selection of multi-brand apparel and footwear. In 2015, Kith Treats was conceived from a childhood love for cereal and dreams of one day opening up a cereal bar - now operating in eight locations, Treats has become a staple within Kith. Our brand has also extended to three shop-in-shops at Bergdorf Goodman, Hirshleifers, and overseas at Selfridges. KITH was founded by Ronnie Fieg, a prominent figure in the footwear industry, who has over twenty years of hands-on experience. Born and raised in Queens, Fieg has been involved with footwear since becoming a stock boy at New York-based franchise David Z. at age 12. With steadfast perseverance, he methodically rose through the ranks from floor salesman to assistant manager to eventually becoming head buyer. Conceptualizing KITH as an extension of himself, Fieg seeks to shift the current landscape of fashion, while operating under a personal philosophy of giving the consumer more than what they pay for.
