Selfridges new men’s footwear department, said to be the biggest men’s footwear department in the world, is set to open next Tuesday (November 6).
Back in March, Drapers exclusively revealed that Selfridges was to overhaul the men’s footwear department in its London store in a bid to replicate the success of its women’s Shoe Galleries.
The department, which is just over 15,000 sq ft in size, will feature 250 different brands as well as bespoke brand boutiques and a made-to-order shoe salon.
At any one time the department will have 72,000 pairs of shoes in stock and 3,200 different styles available.
Selfridges director of menswear David Walker-Smith said: “The new space is one of the cornerstones of our Menswear Masterplan – the ongoing development of men’s fashion at Selfridges.
“Our chief consideration when curating the space has been the idea of shopping by category. This is something we’ve observed our male clients doing more and more, so it feels like a natural progression to build the department around accommodating that shopping pattern.”
Prices for footwear in the department will range from £25 for Havaianas flip-flops to over £10,000 for made-to-order Tom Ford boots.
There will also be a number of styles that have been created exclusively for Selfridges from brands including Lanvin, Versace, Dr. Martens, Marni, Kenzo, Burberry, Trickers, H by Hudson, Tods and McQ.
