This weekend, Edison, N.J.-based Aerogroup International Inc. will open its first Aerosoles store in Brooklyn. The new women’s footwear boutique at 142 Montague St., between Henry and Clinton streets in Brooklyn Heights, will celebrate its grand opening on April 5.

The 15-year-old company specializes in making comfortable, stylish shoes for women. The Brooklyn Heights location will also carry handbags, hosiery and shoe care products, according to Karen Sadick, vice president of retail merchandising for Aerosoles.

Sadick told GO Brooklyn that their spring collection, which ranges from casual weekend wear to dressy, is emphasizing color, wedge heels, World War II-era round toes, suede fabric and mules (from the dressy to the casual).

Aerosoles’ "Glamboree," pictured, are double-banded dress slides with flexible rubber bottoms that lend comfort, while the bow accents give a kiss of femininity. These slides, $49, are available in a variety of of-the-moment colors, including this season’s must-haves, pink and green. Sadick said the "Glamboree" has a look evocative of that "’60s cocktail dress, yet with its low, 2-inch heel, is feminine, sexy and still wearable."

Sadick even claims that Aerosoles has created a version of the notoriously heavy wedge heel that are easier on the feet. "Ours have flexible bottoms," she says. "You’re not pounding the pavement in one solid unit. It bends and moves with your foot."

Sadick hopes the new store, which joins a Nine West retail shoe store and the independently owned boutique Bentley’s on Montague Street, will attract practical but style-conscious women of any age looking for shoes for any occasion. "We want to be able to fulfill all her needs in shoes," Sadick says of her target audience.

The first 25 customers to make a purchase on April 5 will receive an Aerosoles gift certificate. For more information, go to www.aerosoles.com or call (718) 625-3135.
