Angie Sorenson’s subterranean shoe shop sells some of the most directional, fashion-forward steppers in town. Maybe on the West Coast. Which is not to say they’re not wearable, but lines like Surface to Air, L.D. Tuttle, and Loeffler Randall craft platforms, boots, heels, oxfords, and sandals that take outfits to new heights.
UPDATE OCTOBER 2010: Lamb’s Ear Shoes has moved; the little subterranean shop is subterranean no more. Go enjoy some sunlight while you shop for Rachel Comey clogs and A Detacher wedges. Dont miss Thistle, the shop-in-shop accessories store that is a collaboration between Sorenson and the gals at Les Amis.
UPDATE DECEMBER 2014: The brick and mortar is no more, but you can still shop Lamb's Ear online.
