City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

If I had to choose my favorite fashion item, something I have way too many of, it would be shoes. Like most women, I really can’t get enough. Shoes always fit, they can really make an outfit and well…a pair of pumps has the power to make you look and feel like a supermodel.

Enter London-based shoemaker Terra Plana. If you’re not familiar with the brand, you’ll soon be obsessed. They use raw materials; vegetable tanned leathers and recycled elements for everything from the sole to the trim of your shoe. Oh, and did I mention their heels come with a bit of added comfort thanks to a memory foam foot bed?

I’m sure you can only image my delight when I heard that the brand just opened an outlet store in SoHo with selections from their classic collection, Dopie sandal line and VivoBarefoot style at 50-70% off. The Melito style (pictured above) was originally $210 and is being offered for only $120. Sold!

While a listing of which styles will be at the outlet store isn’t available, you can still log onto to view their collections and to learn more about the brand.

I’ll have to keep this purchase(s) a secret from the boyfriend…he’s starting to get annoyed that a portion of our closet-less bedroom (I know-gasp!) is filled with shoeboxes.

What: Terra Plana Outlet Store Sale
Where: 111 Thompson St (btwn Prince and Spring)
When: Now through October

Store hours: Monday through Saturday: 11am-7pm, Sunday: 12pm-6pm
