If you're looking for those hard-to-find Birks, this is the place to go. They have a whole line of "alternative" footwear. They stock mens, womens, and childrens shoes and their selection is impressive. That said, the cost will make you go running to Payless! If you plan on living in just one pair of shoes, then it might be cost-effective to go here. But look elsewhere first and see if you can find it cheaper someplace else. My husband spent $100 on a pair of sandals there only to find a comprable pair that he liked better at another store for $50.
