Saks Fifth Avenue opens one of the largest luxury men’s shoe destinations in the country, as part of the continued ‘grand renovation’ of its New York City flagship, at 611 Fifth Avenue at 50th Street.
The new 8,000 square foot shoe space unites men’s footwear in one central location on the sixth floor, and opens with more than 60 luxury brands ─ 15 of which are new to Saks. Hawking everything from $65 Pumas to an $11,000 pair of Pierre Corthay alligator loafers.
Featured brands include Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Brunello Cucinelli, Burberry, Celine, Common Projects, Dior, Fendi, Givenchy, Gucci, John Lobb and Off-White, among others. In addition to new brands, Saks is differentiating itself from department store competition through exclusives and personalized services.
“Saks Fifth Avenue is stepping up our men’s fashion game with the opening of our new shoe experience, representing another milestone in our New York City flagship’s Grand Renovation,” said Marc Metrick, president, Saks Fifth Avenue. “Luxury footwear is the gateway for men’s customers into fashion and the new shoe experience is just the beginning of exciting things to come for our menswear offering. Men’s is a growing category at Saks, where we have seen a consistently positive customer response both in our stores and online.”
Saks’ store planning and design team collaborated with architecture, engineering and interior design firm Highland Associates on the new space. Design highlights include a blackened metal and stone staircase, custom chandeliers, a large, central seating area and mirrored columns with a dark blue gradient.
