Marais Sunday

Marais is a Brooklyn-based label (yeah, again -- can I help it that the borough plays host to a disproportionate share of design talent?) started by a pair of Parsons grads that's been getting a lot of play lately, and for good reason. Their simple yet stylish footwear manages to be both wallet-friendly and infinitely wearable. The range consists only of flat to low-heeled styles, which means that you can pretty much live in them, and the fact that they're versatile enough to go from day to night, with everything from jean shorts to party dresses, pretty much guarantees that you will. Named after NYC streets, they come in a gorgeous palette of colors.

Mott suede t-strap sandal in Emerald, $52.

Crosby suede woven sandal in Cobalt, $68.

Prince suede peep-toe with patent wedge heel in Eggplant, $72.

  1. LOVE THOSE SHOES!!! I need them in my closet! tfs

  2. Let me know what you think if you get them!

  3. Urban Outfitters (at least the one in the West Village) has them in stock too.

  4. Thanks for letting me know! I walk by there every day on my way home from work -- will definitely check it out.

  5. I bought a couple pairs when they were having a sample sale at their office! The Prince style is extremely comfortable and versatile. I'm thinking of getting it in more colors. The shoes do run large, so definitely order a size down. I usually wear 8.5/9s, and I fit their 8s perfectly.

  6. Good to know! I was thinking of ordering online and will be sure to size down.

    Anxiously awaiting the next sample sale . . .
