All fall and winter shoes and boots are now 60% off at the Shoe Hive in Old Town Alexandria. Think Missoni, Tory Burch, Bettye Muller and MICHAEL Michael Kors. The Shoe Hive got started when the co-owner of swanky Old Town clothing boutique, Courtney Reynolds, happily caved to the customers begging for shoes.
The Shoe Hive carries fanciful designer shoes. Yeah, the selection's teenier than at Macy's or Nordstrom, but it's been more carefully vetted. You'll find those bright-orange Tory Burch Reva flats (and right now they're even on sale) right alongside more conservative black leather DKNY pumps with pointy toes ($225). And you know what you really won't find in a department store? Hot pink Tibi slingbacks covered in poofy black feathers (were $375, now $150). At least, we hope you won't find them in a department store… We'd like to think of the Shoe Hive as one of those special secrets that only we -- and, well, everyone on the Internet -- know about.
The hours are restrictive (seriously, it closes at SIX?!), but the e-store is open 24/7. Plus, this Saturday, February 7, Shoe Hive will be joining in for the annual Boutique Warehouse Sale (101 Callahan Drive, Alexandria) from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Think deep discounts from Old Town's hottest shops.
