Urban, contemporary style has come to Port Washington in the form of Shoe Vault, the quaint shoe boutique located at 277 Main Street next to its affiliated store, Suite 275.  Since its February  grand opening, Shoe Vault has established itself as an up-and-coming staple in Port Washington.

The building that now houses the trendy shoe boutique was once a home of large brick banking vaults.  These industrial safes have been transformed into the chic display cases for Shoe Vaults many shoes and accessories.  Its interior transports you into the middle of Manhattan with brick walls, chandeliers and posh decor.

Shoe Vault’s young and contemporary style targets women from preteens to their 40s.  Shoes hail from designers such as Steve Madden, Chooka, and Tkees.  Shoe Vault keeps up-to-date on all of the latest footwear trends such as smoking slippers, driving shoes, and wedges.  It also follows closely behind seasonal trends and will be introducing spring footwear shortly.

The boutique’s stock is not limited to shoes, and the store also houses other casual clothes and loungewear.  The store also revealed that it will be featuring bags from the brand Rebecca Minkoff.

Prices vary from $30 to $300 and brands include both lower and higher end lines.  Its eclectic styles and broad price spectrum provide for its wide appeal.  The friendly sales associates at Shoe Vault can also place special orders for customers who do not find what they are looking for at the store.

Shoe Vault will be showing its support for the community by taking part in the Rock the Gambol fundraiser in support of the Paul D.  Schreiber High School Gambol of 2013.  On March  21, Shoe Vault will be one of the selected stores on Main Street to donate a percentage of its profits to the 2013 Schreiber Gambol Fund.
