It was with a sigh that I read last week of the demise of Nine West Shoes. Nine West will no longer sell shoes. Always a favorite for style and classy heels. Maybe not the best for duration or every day wear, however still on the leading edge for being trendy.
My Mall's Nine West store closed well before Christmas last year and had a closing sale. If you still have a store in your town maybe you can pick up a pair. Soon to be a collectors item? Maybe I exaggerate, but I am sure the brand will continue on eBay for a while.
A good example of living-on is Enzo Angiolini. I do remember they had likely smallest store in my mall. It did not take long to browse their shelves and I occasionally found a cute pump on sale. I see their shoe in Macy's and other places, so even if the stores close, the name/brand can continue.
As a dedicated mall shopper for many years, I attempted to pull together a list of the ladies shoes stores that are gone-but-not-forgotten. Take a look at the list above and let me know if I have left out any of your favorites.
