In today's Between the Bricks column, the Post reports that Stuart Weitzman will open its fifth Manhattan store at 118 Spring Street in Soho. The location is currently home to another shoe boutique, Jenny B, which relocate to make way for the larger brand.
Though there's no mention of an opening date, we do know that the store signed a lease for a ten-year deal, so it'll be around for a while. Considering that this has pretty much been the year of the shoe—everyone from Nicholas Kirkwood to Charlotte Olympia have recently opened—we don't expect Stuart Weitzman to have a hard time roping in the foot traffic.
