Santee Alley Favorite: Heels!

One of the best things to shop for in Santee Alley (wholesale and retail)? Heels! The alley is THE place for women's footwear in the LA Fashion District. While there is no "footwear sub-district" in the Fashion District, the alley is easily the area in the district with the highest concentration of shoe stores for men, children, and especially women. The women's shoe stores in the alley are lined top-to-bottom with the most popular shoe trends and must-haves for the season. Santee Alley shoe vendors are usually importers, manufacturers, distributors, or a combination of all three. You are buying direct from the source, which keeps prices down. The average price for heels in the alley is $25-30, while sandals are usually less than $20, and the average price for boots can go up to $35.

Not sure where to start shopping? We suggest I Heat Fashion at 1021 inside Santee Alley. It is located near the Santee Alley entrance at Olympic Boulevard, between Maple Avenue and Santee Street.

Hello Boot Season! Fall Boot Trends at Santee Alley

Though it certainly doesn't feel like it here in sunny Southern California, summer is coming to an end in exactly two weeks which marks the official start of boot season! Or as some people like to call it "fall". The Santee Alley's stores already have the season's must-haves in stock, as well as the traditional fall staples. We're seeing a return of the combat boot in ankle and knee length styles. In fact, we've spotted A LOT of knee length styles, and we're predicting it will be a big trend this season. Even the gladiator sandals are taking it to next level (see below). A few other trends that will be big this season: multiple buckles, open-toe booties, and lace-up heels.

All shoes featured in this post can be purchased at I Heart Fashion, located at 1021 Maple Ave. inside the alley. For pricing and purchase inquiries please contact the store directly at 213-742-8919.

Geolo Fire Brings Streetwear Clothing to Santee Alley

The Santee Alley's streetwear scene is growing! While we've seen various stores carry streetwear in the last year, there has really only been one store dedicated entirely to streetwear. That is until a few months ago when Geolo Fire opened at 1138-A Santee St (inside the alley). Geolo Fire offers both wholesale and retail men's urban fashions, specifically printed t-shirts and tank tops, joggers, sweatpants, shorts, and jeans. Streetwear, which is rooted in LA's skate and surf culture, has become increasingly popular over the last couple years, and we're very excited to see it in the alley, adding to our already robust selection on menswear. Welcome to Santee Alley Geolo!
