For Rent Shoes


No one would ever call Savvy an urban hipster. Yet that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate cutting-edge fashion. So she was entranced when she stepped into a graffiti-walled shop in Mount Vernon and met its charming owner, Daniel Davis who opened For Rent Shoes to be “a destination.” And you’ll be buying, not renting (the name’s an inside joke). Whether it’s Sperry Top-Siders hand-painted with the Maryland flag from Davis’s own line, Alexander McQueen-esque club shoes by Manikin or wild silver-mirrored shoes by Nat-2, you’ll be the only one for miles around sporting these looks. Davis has an exclusivity contract with his suppliers. Some of the shoes you won’t even find in the Big Apple. Accessories, T-shirts and art exhibits round out the offerings in a store that’s also a performance space. 515 Cathedral Street, 443-873-9928,
