The Owner is white man with a big belly who walks around bellowing orders to the customers about the rules of shopping in his store. If you take a shoe box off the shelf you must place it back on the outter shelf. If you failed to follow the rules he will argue with you, tell you to shop at payless and will not allow you to purchase any shoes. Yes the prices are cheap but I would rather shop anywhere else but here because he treats the customers like cattle. When one lady overheard the owner who talks very loudly about a customer's shoe choice she asked since you seem like the Shoe Man here could you offer me a suggestion? He said I'm not a Shoe Man! I am the Shoe King Pin. The store is surronded by reflective mirrors where he has sales people stationed by watching you and following you around the store as you shop. I have never seen anything like it. The worst shopping experience ever. Funny I'm sure payless shoes would propably rate higher on it's shopping experience eventhough I never actually purchased shoes there. Don't waist you time shopping there because the owner will not appreciate your business

Pros: Inexpensive shoes

Cons: Treated badly

As a tourist, I just happened upon the store as I was strolling the neighborhood. I spent at least an hour in the store browsing and trying on different shoes. The staff was extremely helpful with running and getting sizes for me and graciously returning my "no" pile to the shelves. The store was full of locals and there was a lot of friendly banter between the staff and owner and shoppers. It seemed everyone knew each other and I felt very welcome to be among them. I bought some FABULOUS shoes at obscenely low prices. I found the whole experience to be what I consider a typical New York City shopping experience. Can't wait to go back!!!

It's like another payless. Except it has brand names and it sells more of classier business like shoes rather than all sorts. The prices aren't that expensive, but the service could be a little friendlier. There is a good variety of names you've never heard of and some that used to be so expensive that you probably never bought. Good variety of purses too.

The first time I went to Anbar shoes, it was on a friend's recommendation. The prices were as she described (very low), but I didn't find anything I liked. No problem, I'd come back. I figured the guy screaming behind the register would soon be fired. Nope, second time back, the guy was still screaming, and I figured - oops, he's the OWNER. Third time back I never tried on any shoes, but did take a glance at my own shoes in the mirror. An employee followed me halfway down the street looking at my feet. I guess the eagle-eye that saw me look in the mirror did not notice I had never once touched a shoe! No thanks, I can get crappy sandals at low prices somewhere that doesn't treat me like a child and feel like a criminal.

Pros: prices, location

Cons: owner paranoia

I try to stop by here at least once or twice year. Whenever I need new shoes and don't want to spend a lot of money. They sell really nice shoes here for great prices and there's always a bargain. The shoes are always good quality and they sell name brand shoes. A shopping I will go.

Anbar Shoe Steal is primarily a discounter of designer shoes and accessories.The also have a smattering of handbags. The selection constantly changes but you will recognize some of the names and the prices are great if they have something you want.
