The Men’s Shoe Library
Gentlemen, let’s get serious. Shoes may be the last thing you put on when you get dressed, but they’re no afterthought. Men in the know have fervent shoe beliefs refined over years of research. One Southern friend wears white bucks year-round even in New York. He looks terrific.
Devoted have a new destination: The Shoe Library, on the First Floor, is where it all comes together. Bergdorf Goodman has long carried exclusive collaborations with the best traditional Italian companies, now there’s even more: Magnanni, Fratelli Rossetti, Haven’t stepped in the deep end with Bontoni? Matthew Singer, BG’s Men’s Fashion Director, bought his first pair and his obsession began. You’ll find Magnanni, Fratelli Rossetti and Sassetti. And there are names you’d expect, like Tod’s, Prada, Lanvin, Ferragamo and Gucci. If you are partial to the design avant-garde, then look out for cult favorites, visvim, Esquivel and Dries van Noten.
The Shoe Library is a great space—you can relax, page through the latest issue of BG Magazine but the shoes are the main attraction. Whatever your strategy, The Shoe Library is the ultimate destination.
