Ubiquitous for their little bow and piping, these are the best shoes! They are part of my uniform in the spring, summer, and fall and are best worn without socks… They are so comfortable and can really take a beating. At my age, a flip flop is not acceptable and Belgians are my go-to for the beach. The shop on East 55th Street is lackluster but there is always the most recent copy of the Social Register for a little sleuthing.
Opened in 1955 by Henri Bendel, Belgian Shoes are a timeless classic in everyone's closet.
