If you're like me, you can never have enough pairs of shoes. That's why I'm constantly on the hunt for a new pair. But I'm not willing to pay any price. I want a bargain to make the make the deal sweeter.
During a shopping trip last week where I was looking for a new pair of black lace up sandals, I rekindled my love for the following top spots in Orlando to buy designer shoes at a discount price. Check 'em out below!
1. DSW - every time I walk in this store, I'm overwhelmed by the sheer number of shoes. From boots to flats, to sneakers and sandals, this store has it all. There is no high-pressure sales making it fun to browse and try on shoes at your leisure.
Shoeaholic Tip: Head straight to the back for the clearance rack. You can score shoes at great prices, some even up to 70% the original sale price.
2. Nordstrom’s Rack - if you've seen it online at www.nordstroms.com or in your local Nordstrom’s store, more than likely it's going to end up at "The Rack." And that's fine with me because it's going to be at a deeper discount. I have found hot brands such as Ugg, Sam Edleman, and Dolce Vita on the racks at really good prices that were too nice to pass up. Which is why my closet is over-flowing with shoes as I type this!
Shoeaholic Tip: the high-end designer shoes are towards the middle of the women's shoe department so if you're looking for Prada on the regular racks, try this area instead.
3. Neiman Marcus Last Call - when I went into this store last week I almost fell out. They had some wedges perfect for the remaining weeks of summer marked down to an additional 75% off. This store is one you should check out frequently because they get new shipments in all the time and you have to stay on top of the shoes they have in your size.
Shoeaholic Tip: When you see a promotional sign, make sure it applies to the designer and style of shoe you're interested in. You don't want to get to the cash register only to be shut down by the sales rep bursting your bubble by telling you your shoe is choice is not included in the sale.
4. Saks Off 5th - similar to Neiman Marcus Last Call, Saks Off 5th sells mid to high-end designer shoes as well. I was a little less impressed with the brands at Saks compared to the brands at Neiman Marcus, but if you dig deep, you can find a shoe gem here and there.
Shoeaholic Tip: Check out the racks lining the back of the shoe department for shoes with slashed prices.
