Established in 2003, this tiny Lincoln Square shop offers a unique selection of high-end shoes displayed in a bright interior with hardwood floors, colorful benches, and tomato red walls. With handcrafted insoles and outsoles designed to mold to the shape of the foot, the Cydwoq (pronounced “sidewalk”) line is the store’s most popular brand, while other favorites include Camper, Gentle Souls, Trippen, Tsubo, and Cordani. Most shoes are leather and range from kitten heels to sandals and boots. In addition to the footwear, Traipse also sells scarves, purses, handmade wool socks, and jewelry crafted by local artists.
