A Lower East Side boutique with high-style shoes for modest budgets
Word to the wise: Dolce Vita made their name by selling stylish shoes at reasonable prices. A few doors down, they've opened another shop, DV by Dolce Vita, which sells even more affordable pairs.
Ultra comfortable, consistently trendsetting and well-priced, Dolce Vita shoes are as close to perfect as you can get.
There's just no reason to spend a lot of money on designer labels after you've experienced their sexy shoes. In fact, many of their styles - from wedge boots, stacked-heels, peep-toes to ballet slippers - will look very familiar. Dolce Vita takes inspiration from the latest looks from Prada, Lanvin, Marc Jacobs, amongst others. While 'knockoff' is a dirty word, Dolce Vita are well-constructed with high quality materials.
Don't miss the back of the shop where you can find the perfect party dress (by Dolan and Mara Hoffman) to complement your new heels.
