Is there a limit to how many shoes a woman can own? Diane B. Shoes makes it impossible to decide. Upon arriving at one of our three stores, one is overwhelmed by the variety of both style and color. Classic pumps, sophisticated flats, and trend setting boots are just some of the looks the Diane B. woman searches for and always finds.
The Diane B collection has established a reputation of presenting beautiful, stylish footwear that is comfortable, well made and well-priced. The collection ranges from updated classic pumps to trendy boots. The brand is best known for designing and making unique styles in printed fabrics, highest quality leathers and exotic skins which are exclusive to Diane B. Our footwear is made in the best factories in Italy and Spain. All shoes are test fitted to ensure the highest level of comfort. Barbara writes, “I have foot problems and finding comfortable heels are a real issue for me, but more than once I have walked from Grand Central to the upper east side in a pair of Diane B. shoes. That is a real sign of a successful shoe for me. Plus I think they have a really nice selection.” And Susan says, “I love this place, in a sort of dangerous way. The shoes are beautifully made, somewhat reasonably priced (okay $300-$400), but for a beautiful pair of pumps that are comfortable all through a 14 hour day, I’m willing to pony up.”
Diane B. is well known for its formal shoe collection. We offer an extensive collection of styles in white dyeable satin suitable for the most memorable occasions. Shoes range from kitten heel pumps to high heel platforms. Toe expressions can be pointy, round, and peep-toe. Design details include ankle straps, sling backs, d’orsay’s, and rhinestone embellishments. Amy writes, “I spent 6 months looking for my wedding shoes. I have a size 42 (11 American) and many stores don’t have my size, plus I needed a low heel which is impossible to find with the current fashion. To my surprise, I had at least 5 pairs brought to me in my size with the heel height I was looking for. I chose a very nice pair with small crystals and now I feel very relieved. They feel very comfortable. I was told for as little as $36 I can have them dyed in any color I want after the wedding so I can continue to wear the shoes for other occasions. Outside of bridal/evening shoes, the selection is great as well. I will definitely be back for more shoes.” We also offer black satin, metallic, and velvet shoes and sandals with coordinating evening bags and clutches.
Our handbag business is growing rapidly. From classic totes to woven hobos, to daytime clutches, you can find well priced alligator, lizard, and leather looks in exciting colors. In addition to shoes and bags we offer magnificent 3 Ply cashmere capes. Imagine every color of the rainbow in luxurious cashmere to wear when traveling on an airplane, for a walk on a cool fall night, or as a cozy wrap at home. This pulls together any outfit. Samantha writes, “A hidden gem on the upper east side. I have been shopping at Diane B. forever. It is more than just a shoe store. It’s a place where you are made to feel special – a place where ‘everybody knows your name.’ The owner is wonderful, talented and creative, and has become a friend. The sales staff is incredibly patient and friendly. I can’t say enough great things…If you have never been, TRUST ME, it’s the best and you will keep going back!’
We at Diane B. have been fortunate that so many women have supported us and have been satisfied with our product and our service. To be able to dress three generations of women in one family is very special to us. It says to us that we are doing something right. So ladies, start making more room in your closets for more shoes!!!
