Shoe stores on Long Island have some kind of weird Alice in Wonderland vibe. Remember how she found those bottles labeled "Drink Me?" She did just that, and wound up really, really big - or teeny tiny. Those are the two basic sizes of shoe stores these days - massive warehouses with minimal decor and super discounts (many on designer brands), or elegant, cozy boutiques, like little jewel boxes, stocked with exclusive, top-tier brands that Carrie Bradshaw would swoon over.

Whether you're in the market for "Sex and the City" stilettos, limited-edition sneakers or workaday flats, we've got you covered. Check out the following shops - our favorites across Long Island.
