People, there is a situation developing inside the Matt Bernson sale at 450 Greenwich St in Tribeca. Sandals are $40, boots are $100, and the pricing has kicked off a feeding frenzy, with shoppers buying five, six, even seven pairs of shoes at a time. The space is tiny but there's no line outside, so if you need summer shoes and you're feeling particularly aggressive, sharpen your elbows and head over. The supply isn't going to last long.
