Designer Shoes for 70% off? We’ve picked our top ten sale shoes that sound almost too good to be true.
The end of summer heralds two things. Last-minute holidays, and the temptation of the end-of-season sales. Whilst 70% off a pair of Malone Souliers party shoes is, indeed, incredibly tempting, you have to ask yourself – do you really need a new pair of crystal embellished heels? If you’ve got a Souliers-shaped hole in your wardrobe, then probably yes. But the sale period is the prime time to slow down and shop consciously – the danger of buying something you don’t need is tenfold when a heavy designer discount is involved. Don’t be fooled by the reduced price tag, but do indulge if the time is right. For instance – a pair of shoes that you wanted all season that have now dropped in price. To save you trawling through the internet, we’ve done the leg work to get to the good stuff. Here are the ten most desirable pairs of sandals on sale now. You won’t regret it.
THE DAD SANDAL
It might be an oxymoron, but Japanese label Suicoke make the coolest ‘dad’ sandals going. The embellished Cecilie Bahnsen collaboration has been one of the hottest sandals of the season, with most retailer’s keeping the sought after pairs full priced. We did not think these summer hit sandals would go on sale, which makes this a find that will be gone before you know it.
THE PARTY SANDAL
The Attico’s sought-after party shoes are glamourous with a capital G, but also pretty timeless. Once they’ve had a go on your last-minute Mediterranean vacay, team with a simple black mini dress for an easy but impactful winter party look.
For retro holiday style, this pair of Malone Souliers heels is bold enough to make a statement, but not so loud that they’re intimidating. A fresh and easy-to-wear introduction to the platform trend and a perfect pair for some early autumn outfits. Available in black and/or white – you pick!
Wrap your head around this – Gianvito Rossi’s spiralised plexi sandals with a cute block heel. Ssh, don’t tell anyone they’re on sale.
THE MUST-HAVE MULE
One of fashion’s breakout footwear labels, Wandler’s sought-after woven mules will add an artisan edge to your end-of-summer wardrobe.
THE BARELY THERE SANDAL
We’re not sure how these ended up on sale, either. Be quick if modern minimalism a la the Olsens is your thing. These are particularly summery in their sea-side colour palette of white, blue and beige.
THE WOVEN SLIDERS
Even if the closest you’ll get to the beach this year is a paddling pool in your BFF’s back garden, these Lowe sliders will make you feel like you’re in Ibiza. For a bit at least.
THE SQUARE TOE STRAPPY SANDAL
Square toe strappy sandals with a toe thong. Timeless monochrome colour palette. With a discount. Sold.
THE PRINCESS SHOE
This is a shoe that never dates, the diamanté sandals are an instant mood lifer and will 100% come on staycation with us. The ‘Tequila’ sandals are one of Aquazzura’s carry-over styles and full priced in most stores.
THE KITTEN HEEL
Super chic and super versatile, we’ll be wearing these By Far kitten heels with summer dresses now, and oversized suiting come fall.
THE LOGO BOOTS
The most perfect way to ease into autumn is surely done with a fresh new pair of leather boots. We can’t even count on one hand all the trends these boots tick off – They business, however you style them.
