So in case you ever doubted the power of arguably New York’s best luxury shopping destination, Barneys New York has been named “Best Shoe Mecca” by New York Magazine.

Which is no real surprise, Barneys boats an unbeatable collection of luxury shoe brands as well as an impressive selection of exclusives spanning Manolo Blahnik, Narciso Rodriguez, Gianvito Rossi and more. The magazine also cited the lavish atmosphere for giving the department store an edge; just picture shoe shopping in a 22,000 square foot space enclosed by walls of Italian marble and furnished with mohair-and-velvet seating along with Macassar ebony tables. We aren’t positive, but it’s almost fact that an afternoon on the Barneys shoe floor is heaven on earth.

This announcement comes with a slew of other New York bests, including the “Best Niche Shoe Mecca,” an honor that went to Lower East Side’s The Little Shoe Store which sells shoes in women’s sizes from 1-6 among, custom shoes from in-house label, the Odd Slipper.

Best Women’s Shirts” went to Equipment, which has been touted by major editors and everyone in between as the brand behind the ultimate silk shirt. From basics to python print to cashmere sweaters, this win doesn’t come as a surprise considering it’s almost an unspoken rule that every girl must have at least one Equipment blouse in her closet.
