DSW is huge! Be sure to check out the top floor clearance section for good deals.

Another vote for DSW. You'll think you died and went to shoe heaven...

I'm not an expert in women's shoes, but I've heard that Nordstrom is shoe heaven for women. There is a Nordstrom's at South Shore Plaza in Braintree if you wanted to go there.

DSW is a great option, but I don't know if the one at Downtown Crossing is still open? It looked like it had closed, last time I was walking by there.

The downtown DSW store is still listed on their website. I stop every time I'm downtown and walk the aisles scanning for my favorite brands. I'll even buy a second pair of a favorite shoe when I see it.

Walking around Boston I wear out a lot of shoes!

I was in the downtown DSW just a couple weeks ago, and there was no indication of closure. Please don't post stuff like that. It may have looked closed, because the retail shop starts on the second floor.

Well, yes in a broad sense it is downtown, as opposed to being an outlying neighborhood. But, when we say "downtown" we tend to mean the Downtown Crossing area where DSW is.

If you are looking for high-end shoes, there are expensive shops and department stores in the Back Bay such as on Newbury Street and in the Copley Place Mall and Prudential Malls (Saks, Neiman Marcus, Barneys....)
