Unmatched when it comes to shoemaking, Salvatore Ferragamo has long crafted footwear for the stars. Ferragamo himself is responsible for some of the most famous shoes in the world—among them Judy Garland's famous ruby slippers in The Wizard of Oz, and Marilyn Monroe's open-toed slingbacks from The Seven Year Itch. While you can't buy either of those shoes at Ferragamo's two-story flagship, you will find the brand's loafers, heels, booties and wedges. The store also carries leather totes, clutches and briefcases, a full line of ready-to-wear apparel and, of course, suits. The label's resplendent ties are displayed on shelves throughout the lofty space.
