This Saturday, Best Shoe Store Nominee for the Racked Awards, City Soles is hosting a handmade jewelry & accessories event from 12-6PM. You'll be able to shop one of a kind pieces that scream Wicker Park from designers like Nittna, Hunter / Gatherer, Betsy & IYA, Dollybird, F*ck You and Noma. City Soles is also celebrating the arrival of their newest line, Emmett Cobb created by conceptual multimedia artist, Jessica Cobb. Under the alias, Emmitt Cobb, Jessica is known for installation and video work but is branching out into functional body embellishment. We're particularly enamoured with these hand-cast bronze androgynous and mysterious hairpins in the Menagerie Series. Priced at $120 each, the animals in the collection range from giraffes, bucks, does, dogs and more open shapes. In addition to the hairpins City Soles will now be carrying the new Emmitt Cobb Jewel Spike line.
