Get The Gossip: What Others Are Saying About The New Barneys Shoe Floor

It’s been quite a week here at Barneys New York, where we unveiled our fabulous new shoe floor at the Madison Avenue flagship. We haven’t been able to stop gushing about it all week, and it looks like we’re not the only ones. Here’s what a few others have been saying… (Spoiler alert: The consensus seems to be, “Get your feet over to Barneys immediately!”)

“The new shoe floor is truly elegant—chic and restrained, airy and luxurious, all the better to display the shoes, which are presented almost like artwork. Simon Doonan put it best when he said it looked like ‘a beautiful dreamy ‘60s apartment.’” – Fashionista

“The combining of men’s and women’s on one floor is a testament to the importance of shoes in your wardrobe. I love the wide open space of Barneys’ new shoe floor. Each brand has room to make its own statement.” – Paul Goring, director of operations at John Lobb U.S.A., in WWD

“Carrie Bradshaw would be in heaven.” - GLAM

“There really is no excuse not to explore Barneys’ new bright and airy fifth floor redesign.” - Guest of a Guest

“It’s like walking into a super chic gallery that could possibly bankrupt even the most fiscally conservative shoe lovers (are there any?).” - Harper’s Bazaar

“The couches are so comfy on Barneys’ new shoe floor you can sleep on them.” - Fashionista

“Barneys unveiled the latest piece of its multi-year renovation today—a new 22,000-square-foot floor that is sure to have footwear fans pulling out their credit cards upon arrival.” - Style.com

“If you’re in the neighborhood or find yourself on Madison Ave definitely head over there! Your wallet will despise you and your toesies will adore you. It’s a tough life we lead here in the city.” - Vogueology

“Indulge in your footwear fetish at Barneys this week and you’re actually doing a good deed… The skinny is this: 10% of sales made at the store’s new footwear cathedral will go to benefit the Human Rights Campaign, which, as we all know, is an endlessly positive resource for the advancement of equality for the LGBT community.” - Out.com

“Love for shoes and love for each other, what could be more perfect?” - GLAM

“Oh and, and if you want an adorable anecdote to warm your mid-week heart of stone, check out the love letter from Francesco Russo of Sergio Rossi about how shoes brought he and his boyfriend together. John Varvatos started his first date with his now-wife at Barneys (smart guy!) So cute!” - Out.com

“The newly renovated space is amaaaaaaaaaaazing, it’s like a sex dungeon if sex was shoes and dungeons were Barneys. It also kind of looks like my bathroom, and I’m OBSESSED with my bathroom. So…” - Babe Walker

“Godspeed, shoe devotees.” - Harper’s Bazaar
