Cole Haan, Converse, House of Harlow, Frye (among many others), all in one spot; not to mention a bespoke approach to shoe fittings, where widths matter as much as lengths — this is Canada’s very own Freedman’s shoes. New on the radar though, is their latest retail location. They just opened their first Calgary shop this week.
South Centre Mall is the new home to the 2,000 square foot boutique making it the 3rd largest in Canada. Designed by luxury space experts Box Interior Design (also responsible for Vancouver’s swish Market by Jean-George and Whistler’s boutique hotel haven Adara), the new space boasts a curved glass wall to show off their extensive handbag collection. We’ve got our eye on the Longchamps bags ladies (by the way, Calgary’s got the exclusive on these babies). And did we mention the company turns 80 this year? If it takes ten years to become an expert, then that makes Freedman a shoe expert eight times over. www.freedmanshoes.com
