Shop men's shoes at a discount during tonight's "Just for Blokes" party at Bus Stop Boutique.
The Fabric Row footwear boutique Bus Stop has expanded its selection of men's shoes and to celebrate, tonight the store is hosting a "Just for Blokes" shopping party. Stop by the boutique from 5pm-8:30pm, and take 15 percent off Bus Stop's autumn inventory of men's footwear. The store's new location at 727 South Fourth Street sports an entire wall dedicated to guys-only kicks and accessories, like wallets and locally designed cashmere-blend socks.
According to Bus Stop shopgirl Aubrie Costello, refined, handcrafted shoes from British brand J Shoes are a huge hit with Bus Stop's male customers, but Philly guys aren't opposed to taking risks: "They love a quality, timeless style, but also like to have fun with a colorful shoe," she says. "Men are becoming more comfortable with experimenting with shoes and that is fabulous!" As an added incentive, shoppers will receive an icy cold brewski upon entrance.
