Clearly in the business of doing things big, Cali shoe chain Warehouse Shoe Sale (better known as WSS) is following up last year's epic Hollywood unveiling with the grand opening of its DTLA store on Tuesday, May 12th. Located in an enormous warehouse on the corner of 7th and Union, the space will serve as the retailer's official U.S. flagship, offering more than 300 shoe brands for women, men, and kids.
To toast its Downtown debut and its 30th anniversary, on opening night WSS will be hosting an exclusive party that will feature one-of-a-kind shoes designed by leading and emerging LA artists. Stay tuned for photos from that and check back soon for more store details.
