Saks Fifth Avenue in New York has opened a shoe floor just for men
Saks has created a shoe haven for men. Situated on the sixth floor of its New York City flagship, is an 8,000-square-foot space featuring more than 60 luxury brands and 160 styles exclusive to Saks, and they're only for men.
As part of the experience, the reimagined men's footwear area includes over 2,000 SKUs, 160 exclusive styles, shoe repair stations, extended sizing, 30 multilingual men's shoe style advisors, and merchandise personalisation.
But the space will not be just a regular shoe store. It will also host events and panel discussions with the first one scheduled to be the launch of Puma sneakers by Alexander-John with appearance by Upscale-Vandal on August 8.
"Saks Fifth Avenue is stepping up our men's fashion game with the opening of our new shoe experience, representing another milestone in our New York City flagship's Grand Renovation," said Marc Metrick, President, Saks Fifth Avenue.
"Luxury footwear is the gateway for men's customers into fashion and the new shoe experience is just the beginning of exciting things to come for our menswear offering. Men's is a growing category at Saks, where we have seen a consistently positive customer response both in our stores and online. We are continuing to redefine the luxury shopping experience while giving our customers another compelling reason to shop with Saks."
It will also have a shoe made-to-order programmes with luxury brands, such as Pierre Corthay, Ermenegildo Zegna, Salvatore Ferragamo, Santoni, John Lobb, Bally and Artioli.
Pretty cool space, isn't it?
