Kaufman’s Shoe Supply
Goodness. These photos give the exact same feeling that I get when I’m in fabric stores and in home depot: a strong desire to buy EVERYTHING despite knowing full well I don’t know what to do with any of it! Sad. Luckily I don’t feel that way in Pearl Art Supplies (except in the acrylic paint section) or makeup shops. Hah.
Great photos! Makes me want to get creative. xo
AYCH What are we expecting now!!! Never knew places like this existed, totally agree with Daphne, it’s that feeling of being in a fabric store (despite the fact that I’ve never sewed my own clothes before…)
Wow! Love the storage.
Such cool photos!
Oh wow, I could spend hours in a place like this. If only I knew how to make shoes. What a joy.
Why is there nothing even remotely like that where i live!
That looks like so much fun.
It’s a bit weird to see. Quit interesting.
Fascinating really. I never dreamed there’d be such a place. I could go crazy in there, looking at all the heel and leather options. Then I’d find a really good cobbler….and…..yeah. Custom made shoes. (I wouldn’t have the patience or finesse to make my own like you’ve done!)
gosh this place is incredible, I wish I had somewhere like this near me
This berings about the same feeling as candy land. We have a shop similar to that in Toronto but I presume the size of the space and selection will not compare. On my trip to NYC this will definitely be a must visit stop.
I have just started a custom footwear making course! I’ve made two pairs of shoes so far. We have a few stores like this where I live, they drive me insane (in a good way). Always so many little bits and random cuts of leather. Im yet to find a good heel supplier though… this store youve found seems to have a reasonable range
are you making another pair of shoes?! is so please post the process again. i love it when you do that. It’s so inspirational
Oo LOVE infiltrating specialized stores like this. Excited to see what comes about!
I bet it smells amazing in there !
don’t forget to mention the delightful staff at kauffman’s because they are the BEST (especially when you’re just starting out)!
