Carrie Bradshaw of "Sex and the City" was known for her love of shoes. She doesn't really have a lock on that, however, as most women enjoy having several pairs of shoes to choose from for different occasions. If you're in the market for shoes while are you shopping in New York City, we can help you find the stores that should have what you're looking for. The ones listed are in different locations around the City, so there should be one close to you.

Shoe, 247 Mulberry Street

This store with the unpretentious name is anything but. You can find genuine leather bags, clutch wallets, handbags, and, yes, shoes at this store that has been in business since 1999. The owner, Sheryl Lee, credits word of mouth as the reason for her store's success. You'll see why when you visit, because it's all you'll be talking about for the next month or longer.

Tip Top Shoes, 155 W 72nd Street

This store has been in business since 1940, and is currently being run by the 3rd and 4th generation of the original owners. They make sure that things are handled exactly as they were when the store first opened by offering Mephisto and Ecco brands, which the store was the first to carry, as well as continue the tradition of spreading the word about the Euro Comfort movement that originated at Tip Top Shoes. The store is open 7 days a week for your shopping convenience.

Bakers, 358 5th Avenue

If you are a young woman looking for shoes to fit your lifestyle and fashion sense, then Bakers is the store for you. The store specializes in shoes designed specifically for young women. Your shopping experience at Bakers will be made even more enjoyable by the fact that the employees are there to serve but not to "hover". They will offer help when it is needed, and remain ready to answer questions or help you find shoes when you are ready.

Aldo, 700 Broadway

This company is an international one, and New York City is just one of the places lucky enough to have a store in its area. This means NYC residents and visitors alike can find high-quality shoes, as well as accessories and other leather goods.

The company also prides itself on its altruistic spirit. A portion of the profits goes to help in the fight against AIDS. So, when you shop at Aldo, you will not only find shoes that you will like, but you'll be supporting a good cause, too.
