MIDTOWN—For those who can't make it to the Italian coast this vacation season, there's the return of Capritouch's make-your-own-sandals kiosk at Bloomingdale's 59th Street shoe salon. Artisans are on hand to help you create personalized, tailor-made shoes, from a simply strapped sandal to knee-grazing gladiators. Simply take your pick between precious stones, corals, and genuine Swarovski crystals alongside different materials such as goat leather, nappa, and python to create a truly unique pair. And shoppers will receive a free personalized leather bracelet to complete the look upon purchase, available now through the end of August.
