Who would have thought a boutique in Kansas would become such an invaluable resource for one-stop shoe shopping on the web? Selfishly, we wanted to keep it a secret, but then again Habitat Shoe Boutique deserves all the praise we can give it.
Somewhat akin to Piperlime, but for the brands serious fashionistas seriously covet, the site, like the shop, follows a philosophy centered not on fads or flash, but on enduringly stylish, impeccable-quality brands and styles. The roster speaks for itself: there's Rachel Comey, Loeffler Randall, Coclico, Tom's, Bensimon, Frye, BCBG, Faryl Robin, Matt Bernson, Cynthia Vincent and more for women. Men's brands include Rachel Comey, Timberland, Fred Perry, Ted Baker, Tom's, PF Flyers and others.
Oh, but wait, there's more. The site carries apparel—Built by Wendy, Apiece Apart, Harvey Faircloth—and accessories by labels such as Lauren Merkin, Gojana, Marimekko, Matt & Nat.
