Obsession Knows No Bounds: Click to access our Shoe Book

Obsession knows no bounds. Stilettos. Flats. Platforms. Boots. There’s no limit when you’re possessed.

And that’s what we are: absolutely and completely bewitched. From uptown to downtown, we’ve kept a keen eye on shoes and where they may lead us. Because isn’t that the secret to the absolute perfect pair? You never know what adventures they hold.

So we’ve taken our obsessions to the streets (blame our newly upgraded Today’s Shoe app… or even our soon-to-be-revealed expanded shoe salon for fueling the fire). Inspired by the John Clang photography in our Fall Shoe Book, we’ve started capturing these obsessions in their urban landscape. You may have noticed a snapshot or two lingering around Fashion City — a Louboutin Daffodile glittering in the Farmers Market, Giuseppe Zanotti twinkling at Lincoln Center; a Charlotte Olympia kitty prowling through the Central Park Zoo… Each pair has a place in the story of New York, and now we want you to share your own shoe obsessions with us.

Beginning today, we invite you to join us in the charting of shoe obsessions via Instagram. Using the Instagram iPhone app, photograph your shoe in its natural territory, hash-tag it with #BGShoes and enable Instagram’s geotag so your shoes have a place in or surrounding Manhattan. Those photographed will appear on our interactive map of shoe fanaticism and may even find a place on the walls of our store. We can’t wait to see where your shoe obsessions take you.
