The city is about to get another huge vacant retail space, as Co-Pilot Shoes at 654 Broadway at Bleecker will be shuttering later this week. You know what that means! Hit their huge closing sale, perfect for NYU students and those desiring cheap throwaway shoes to start off summer. $15 Crocs anyone? Other (mostly tacky) offerings from Rocketdog, Diesel, Uggs, Sugar, and Minnetonka are sprinkled in with stacks of $10 skimmers and $20 disco-worthy heels.
