City Soles/Niche

city soles niche

This corner shoe shop features two sides: the super-spendy Niche and the more reasonably priced City Soles. Women drool over Faryl Robin, Corso Como and Cynthia Vincent; guys, sneak a peek at Cydwoq and PoMonjo. Mark your calendar for the recurring nickel sale (buy a pair full price and get the second half-off).

Belmont Army Surplus

Despite its name, there’s a lot more than camo here. Sift your way through trendy clothes (and occasional sales) before checking out our favorite part: the shoe department. From the selection of Converse sneaks in every color (not to mention Reeboks, Vans, adidas, etc.) to the few dozen goth boots and Dr. Martens, there’s a pair for everyone here.

Frye Boots – Uncovering Great Finds at Your Local Store

We explored our hipster and bustling Harvard Square neighborhood for some great local finds.  Of course, we had to stop by one of our favorite local stores, The Tannery, only to find a wonderful collection of Frye boots on sale.  In addition to the boots, there are so many shoes and apparel ready to be rocked the remaining of this summer and this fall. Stop by The Tannery and uncover some treasures for your closet.

Feathers Boutique

A Western, bohemian vibe dominates this beloved organized-
by-color vintage spot. We shopped the rainbow and found a toffee ’70s prairie skirt on the desert-hued rack, an orange ’60s caftan in the sunset-colored section and an emerald paisley scarf among the jewel tones.
