Shoe Retailers Offer More Midpriced Merchandise

Although unusual and outlandish shoes have always been a sign of wealth, the recession has retailers scrambling to offer more affordable footwear options. As Stephanie Rosenbloom recently reported in her New York Times News service article, “Retailers switch how they do business,”* high-end stores like Neiman Marcus and Saks are offering more mid-priced merchandise. Furthermore, in a shocking turn away from his typical mortgage-payment prices, Jimmy Choo recently announced that a pair of his shoes will be available for as little as $55 in H&M stores in November. (I never thought I would write “retail” and “Jimmy Choo” in the same sentence.)

Many fashionistas will scoff at such developments.  After all, brave style warriors have long braved thrift and vintage stores, garage sales, and clearance racks to scout out killer, affordable shoes.  Here at Shoefly, you can find a wide variety of divine pairs for only a few clams. Here are a few of my favorite screamin’ deals currently available at the Shoefly site:

1.  Judy 07009 by All Black $35

2.  Twins Bombay by Camper, $48 (only available in Euro size 35)

3.  Lola by Report, $13 (only available in size 9)

4. Audrey Ballet by 80/20, $19

5.  Tristan by Report, $20 (only available in size 10)

The bottom line:  As long as you’re willing to do a little legwork, you can find killer deals on killer shoes– now get out there and shop!
