The Level Shoe District: The largest collection of shoes in the world
The shoe shop with the world's largest collection of shoes is in Dubai. The Level Shoe District takes up 96,000 square feet of real estate. It is stocked with 15,000 different styles from 250 brands. Gucci and Prada dominate but there are many designer styles. Previously Macy's laid claim to the title "world's largest shoe store" when it opened a 39,000-square-foot floor dedicated to footwear. Saks Fifth Avenue in New York recently added 7,000 square feet to its shoe department along with a dedicated elevator and private VIP room . The shop has also got its own postal ZIP code. Barneys New York recently launched a unisex designer shoe store that is 40% roomier with 350 more styles.
