san francisco: super shoe biz

review_main

products

boots, flats, trainers, platform boots, platform flats and platform trainers...store II has the best selection of sport shoes/trainers this side of niketown...plus acupuncture, fornarina, camper, wosh, aeffe...lots of london-based labels, and nothing too high-end...most priced under $200...

clientele

packed with street "kids" and the hip waiter and bartender from the restaurant opening the night before...if manolo and prada fill your shoe racks, steer clear...

service

surprisingly friendly and solicitous given the amount of ear grommets and tattoos...can't say the same for shoe biz II where you can't even establish eye contact...

interior

super shoe biz is the biggest and newest, with the most glass and metal, shoe biz II is cramped and needs a facelift, and shoe biz I is stuck in the 80s...

ambience

>> self-expression through footwear <<

[shoe biz I and II down the street...] futuristic feel, but the polished floors and basic fixtures won't leave much of an impression -- which is just as well, save yourself for the SHOES
