The Shoe - Soho
has anyone been to this store in soho?

"the shoe" is famous in korea for making unique handmade shoes.... their shoes are known for their originality / uniqueness and their use of bright colors.. they also cater to the customers needs.. they take custom orders.... you can pick any material/design/heel height and they will make one for you.. at least thats what they do in korea.. i dont know if they are doing it in the states..?
their pricing is reasonable too... in korea its around $200... add or subtract 50 depending on the material...

anyways
their store just opened in soho early march, and im interested to know if anyone has been to the store... id be interested to know how they are doing in the american market.....

below are some pictures from their soho store...
if you want to see more of their shoes, please visit www.theshoe.co.kr

the site is in korean, but click on 더슈 SHOE's_。 and you should be able to look at some of their shoes... :p

what do you guys think?
do you think they have potential to survive in the us market?

ok...i can see the pictures cloud9 posted...
i HAVE been to that store...it's in NoLiTa actually...a couple of blocks from me...
i was only in once though...the staff wasn't very friendly ...so i didn't really stay long...

the store had a weird vibe...
maybe i'll have another look since cloud 9 recommends it...
