Five Places to Find Fabulous Shoes in Pittsburgh

Channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw with a visit to these unique shoe boutiques, which, in some cases, feature kicks designed right here in Pittsburgh.



Spindly heels. Simple ballet flats. Trendy booties. Strappy sandals. Towering wedges. The right shoe can change your look or even, as in Cinderella’s case, your life. Luckily for fashionistas in search of a few good shoes (and maybe a handsome prince), Pittsburgh is home to a variety of stylish shoe boutiques, including some that feature high-end shoes designed in Pittsburgh and already beloved by celebrities.
 

Emy Mack Collective

Remember the name Emy Mack because it’s about to become synonymous with well-known luxury shoe brands such as Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin. Pittsburgh-based designer Emily Mack Jamison, whose Italian-made luxury footwear line has been featured on the Lifetime Network’s "Project Runway" and in the pages of Marie Claire magazine, opened her Emy Mack collective boutique in 2015 on Filbert Street in Shadyside. The brand already is adored by celebrities, and Mack’s harem of stylish star followers include "Scandal"’s Kerry Washington.

True Runner

True Runner is a Mecca for athletes who favor shoes with style and substance. The Shadyside store features a plethora of colorful running kicks from some of the market’s top brands. It also carries running clothing, running accessories and, well, a lot of running stuff. Perhaps best of all, True Runner employs a knowledgeable staff that will help you select the best shoe for you. They even offer an arch and gait analysis to help you find the ideal shoe based on your body’s running mechanics.

Littles Shoes

It’s impossible to make a bad step at Littles Shoes in Squirrel Hill. Known as Pittsburgh’s largest full-service family shoe store, Littles has been serving customers for more than a century — that’s a lot of shoe experience! The shop carries a huge variety of brands and sizes for men, women, boys and girls. Besides its large selection, Littles is known for its attentive staff, so don’t be afraid to ask their opinion on shoe styles and fits.

Ten Toes

Looking for a pair of shoes no one else at the next party you attend will have? Then Ten Toes is for you. The Shadyside boutique is known for carrying cutting-edge women’s shoe fashions at affordable prices. Customers especially love it for the great sales.

Footloose

When you want to get loose, footloose (sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves)  is where to head. Footloose in Shadyside is a designer shoe boutique featuring the latest trends in footwear and accessories from Europe. If you’re looking to further accessorize your look, head south to the Footloose Galleria located at The Galleria Mall in Mt. Lebanon. Besides a wide selection of designer shoes, the Footloose Galleria also carries clothing, handbags, jewelry, beauty products and other accessories. Score!
