A colleague recently pointed me to a New York Times blog post about Italian designer shoes. The shoes, from a third-generation company in Montegranaro, retail starting at $1,000 and up — way up, actually. In an economy that’s still working to get back on its feet, it was a little hard for me to understand how anyone could justify spending so much on a pair of shoes (heck, I would question the decision to spend that much money on shoes in a good economy, too). Thankfully, here at Shoefly, we have the same amount of taste and style for a much more affordable price. In fact, Shoefly.com is having a 30% off sale, so the prices are even better than before! If you’re in the market for a pair of quality designer shoes with a whole lot of class, look no further.

Let’s face it: these days, everyone’s looking for ways to save money while maintaining their most fabulous individual look. I’m no different. I dream of leading Carrie Bradshaw’s shoe-tastic lifestyle, but I’m really more like a fashion MacGyver– I’ll wow the crowd with whatever materials and footwear is available, even if I’ve reinvented a certain pair five times. One trick to getting more milage out of your footwear is to take good care of it. But no matter how many protective balms you buy, life happens and shoes eventually show signs of wear. Or maybe you’re just bored with a certain pair, and you want to update your look without emptying your wallet. Well, here are five fun ways to get your old shoes back in business. Enjoy… and once you’ve cleared out your shoe closet, surf on over to Shoefly to take full advantage of our 30% off sale– save an additional 30% off marked prices at check out!

Faryl Robin is one of my favorite lines. Why? Because every Faryl Robin shoe seems to have its own story waiting to be told. With unusual lines, unpredictable heels, and sweet shapes in everything from flats to boots, Faryl Robin has a winning formula for chic shoes. I love her stuff so much, that I sometimes wish I could have a mini Faryl Robin sitting on my shoulder as I trudge through miles of shoe aisles, on a mission for the perfect pair. Well, now I can! Okay, I can’t actually have a mini Faryl, but I can run through her three essential questions as I shop for shoes:

With September only a day away, it’s time to say “So long!” to sandals and “Welcome back!” to boots. Yet, as I was thinking about making the transition to fall footwear, I started really grieving the ease and convenience of sandals. Needless to say, I’m not looking forward to the added hassle of pulling on a pair of boots or strapping myself into some other winter-approved shoe in order to brave the elements — especially when I’m in a hurry or only headed out for a quick errand. But with a cold and wet fall coming, anything else is just too impractical, and if you’re native to the Pacific Northwest like I am, you know the rain isn’t very friendly to just any shoe. And sleet and snow can be just as ruthless. Thankfully, I just discovered the perfect shoe for fall and winter.

That’s right, green – and no, we’re not talking environmentally-friendly — just the color. Green is on its way back and already surfacing among some shoe designers, at least, that’s what our friends at The Shoe Dish are saying. While they concede, however, that we won’t see the color’s popularity in full force until next spring, hints of the fashion trend will be appearing throughout the fall and winter. And when spring does get here, Shoefly wants you at the forefront of fashion instead of trying desperately to catch up. Here are a few ways for you to set the trend, not just follow it.

This, of course, is one of the age-old questions many men find wandering through their heads. And as a member of the male gender myself, I won’t lie, I’ve let the same question do some wanderin’ in my own noggin — don’t get me wrong, I love my shoes (obviously), but even I try to draw the line somewhere. Today, however, columnist Sheri Goggin came to the defense of women and their abundance of shoes by addressing the question in a local newspaper. Here’s how a man thought her answer measured up.
