Galeria Melissa

in SoHo & Chinatown

This Brazilian designer specializes in downpour-friendly plastic footwear. Recyclable, sustainable, stylish – women's and kids' shoes run the gamut from mod sandals to brogues, runners and, of course, boots.

Melissa's SoHo boutique is the only one in the USA and it's a lesson in the future of retail, with an Instagram room, a vertical rainforest plant wall, shoes displayed on plinths and prismatic mirror walls.
