Schutz, the Brazilian footwear emporium, has quickly created a reputation for offering customers high fashion shoes at fast fashion prices. The boutique, which is across from Barneys and next door to Brian Atwood, is stocked with fashion forward shoe styles that are all priced very attractively. We like to describe the store as a footwear-only version of Zara.
Most shoes are spiked and studded and are normally priced between $90 and $400 but it’s discount season and Schutz shoes are on sale. Right now most items are 50% off. While shoe shopping, we found Celine-like chunky heels for $90 from $180, snake print leather peep toe stripy heels are $150 from $300 and pointy toe pumps are $50 from $100.
The store has undoubtedly made an impact on the Uptown budget shoe market. We just aren’t sure if inexpensive shoes will be anything more than inexpensive shoes. Take note, that the brand has an online store but shipping is $20, which seems exorbitant for shoes costing barely $100.
