Buying Shoe's Here Since A Kid! – My grandfather brought me here as a kid to buy shoes, and said never pay retail. Retail is a nasty word I soon learned, but respected when I became a buyer for the late great Rich's Department Store. I was still a customer here while a student at GSU. I would run into Atlanta's powerbroker's, like Miles B. Lane, of C&S Bank fame, and we were all looking for a good value. The building is tacky, walk-up, and wonderful with no hard selling, if you like, you buy, and if you don't who cares. I love this place still, and I think Murray might still be here, God bless him. Now all the sports pros buy shoes by the dozens, but some of us poor little Jewish boys still shop here. It's Atlanta's history!
Downtown's landmark services Don King's shopping sprees as well as the average person's budget. – The Scene
Friedman's--which opened in 1927--is a living museum where athletes' jerseys and photographs autographed by everyone from Martin Lawrence to Tommy Lasorda grace the wall. The men's store is divided into three levels, with sports apparel on the first floor, clearance items on the second and a main showroom on the third. (It's fabled that Don King once bought 110 pairs of shoes here and 20 for his pal Mike Tyson.) Ladies' shoes are two doors down, with a much smaller, but equally divine collection of Italian leather shoes.
Men shouldn't miss the Skins Room: every style and color of alligator imaginable. Also, watch for the ever-expanding stock of big and tall urban fashion with brands such as FUBU and Pele Pele. The women's Italian leather collection ranges from lime-colored alligator pumps to sleek brown leather heels.
