Every time I go to Barneys, I could spend hours and hours going thru the displays and end up a few shopping bags on hand. They have the best array of designer and luxury brands. For a woman, it is a shopping heaven for us, especially that we also can find gifts for our male partners. I got my boyfriend a Barneys NY Wingtip Blucher and he loved it. He said it was the most comfortable shoes he has ever worn, and it is a Barneys brand. I even found another comfortable pair of shoes on sale – the Rivieras at $59 (usual selling price was $95). It was a pretty good deal.
