Department stores keep playing Can You Top This? with their shoe floors. In the last 18 months, Bloomingdale’s, Selfridges, Lord & Taylor, Bergdorf Goodman, Harrods and Lane Crawford all raised the stakes on the in-store experience to capitalize on strong sales growth in footwear. This fall, Macy’s will unveil what it calls the world’s largest women’s shoe department—39,000 square feet—at its Herald Square flagship. Saks Fifth Avenue, which set the bar high in 2007 with its 10022-Shoe floor, is said to be planning another update. Bergdorf’s contemporary shoe area is up for a revamp later in the year, while Barneys New York will create a full women’s shoe area on level five (after moving men’s Co-op to the eighth floor). Here, five stores fight it out in footwear.
