2017 Best Shoes

Barneys New York

The fireplace is often burning in the shoe department at Barneys, but the real blaze comes from the passionate fashion minds buying and curating behind the scenes. Here they’ve amassed not only the expected collection of designer names—Balenciaga, Fendi—they’ve also collaborated with industry leaders to create styles exclusive to the store (including a particularly stunning pair of Givenchy lace-up leather flats).
