Where you should go shopping for Designer discount shoes
Bertha Cool US
â¢ 528 Commonwealth Ave. Boston;
(617)247-4111 One flight above Kenmore Square, Bertha Cool has lots of great stuff to wear down on the street in Kenmore, Copley, Harvard, or any other place where it’s hip to be square.
The clothing is a bit on the pricey side for used, but it’s of great quality and still less than what you’d pay for new. A nicely broken-in pair of Levis is $15; a new pair of men’s patent-leather uniform shoes can be found for $40. For women, a long, black sequined dress is $75; other dresses range down to $55 and less. A really sharp-looking leather jacket was also $75.
You’ll find vintage jewelry here, too a man’s tie tack, with a horse-head design, is $9; women’s ankle bracelets are $14. And don’t forget cool sunglasses and hats. The shop is small, but crammed from floor to ceiling. Open Mondays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays 1-5.
