End-of-season sales are a mecca for a bargain-hunters like our friend Cheap Chick, who loves to find cute shoes on the cheap. First, I have to point out that the use of the word “cheap” on this blog only refers to the price of the shoes (simply defined as under $25) because anything beyond that — looks, quality, etc — is really a matter of personal preference. However, it does help to find shoes that are not only low in price, but also come from recognizable brand names that are normally much more expensive. That’s what Cheap Chick found in the Piperlime Final Sale and it’s also when things get really fun, like when you come across something like the Sam Edelman Magdalena (pictured above) with a retail price of $150 marked down to just $19.97 with free shipping in gray or
whiskey/black. That’s an unusually low price for this brand and I’m not seeing this particular style for less than around $80 anywhere else right now (Update 8/20: The price of the whiskey/black version was just increased to $39.95). Want more? Here are some additional name brand sandals and heels under $25 at Piperlime:
Seychelles Pickford for $24.97 with free shipping (retail $99).
Steve Madden Glistenn in black and 3 more color options for $24.97 with free shipping (retail $90).
Naughty Monkey Shinner in grey for $24.99 with free shipping (retail $89). Sizes are getting a bit limited.
Report Ledger for $24.97 with free shipping (retail $90).
DV by Dolce Vita Siren for $24.97 with free shipping (retail $90).
Matiko Blake for $19.97 in black or white (retail $195).
Mia Biscotti in natural or black for $19.97 (retail $59). The Naughty Monkey Divine in grey is a similar style for the same price (retail $99).
This is merely a sampling — there are tons of options at various price points in Piperlime’s Final Sale. Note that returns are not allowed for these styles and prices are subject to change.
Update: Many more shoes under $25 can be found in the Steve Madden clearance sale, where prices are currently reduced by an extra 50% through 9/2/11 (the price listed has the discount applied). There are quite a few priced under $20!

Cheap Chick is in da house today, which is great news for shoe lovers on a tight budget….or anyone who gets a thrill out of a seriously good bargain. If you don’t know, this little birdie loves to hunt for shoes that are on major discount and she makes it her mission to scour the web looking for hidden gems in the sale and clearance sections. To up the ante, she only finds shoes that are marked down to super-low prices — i.e. $25 or less — but are still way high on style. Let’s take a look at what Cheap Chick found today:
Aldo Munday in taupe or black for $24.99 (retail $100) at Aldo.com. This price is already in cheap territory, but coupon code 401845805 takes another 10% off through 7/31/11.
Miss Me Skyler 11 in brown for $25.75 (retail $79.95) with free 2-day shipping at Endless. You can also get it in white for the same price, but it’s almost sold out.

We haven’t seen our friend Cheap Chick in awhile, but she decided to pop out of her shell today in the name of cute shoes that won’t break the bank. If you’ve been to this site before, you know that Cheap Chick is the resident bargain-hunting birdie at this shoe blog and her sole mission is to find shoes under $25. Sure, she looks pretty tame, but be warned: she gets downright predatory when it comes to low-priced shoes, especially brand name pairs that normally cost much more. Here’s what she hunted down today:
Smartbargains is having a Shoe-A-Thon, which works out quite well for this Cheap-A-Thon because they have a selection of nearly 50 shoes from brands like Fergie, Carlos Santana, Franco Sarto, Matisse and Harajuku Lovers marked down to just $19. Sizes and color options are limited for some styles, but I like the Harajuku Lovers Kalista pictured above. It’s still available in a wide selection of sizes and comes in silver, black or brown (color availability depends on size selected, some are sold out). The sale ends 8/14/10.
6pm has the Madden Girl Maci in black with zipper accents marked down to $24.95 (MSRP $54.95).
6pm also has the Not Rated Beadster wedge in tan for $23.99 (MSRP $39.99). It comes in black as well, but it’s almost sold out.
Shoemall has the Yellow Box Biloxi flip flop marked down to $29.99 (originally $37.95) and coupon code BK2SCHOOL takes 20% off until 8/17/10 and that reduces them to $23.99 with free shipping. The similar Yellow Box Fusion is marked down to $23.99 and the coupon drops them to $19.19.
Also at Shoemall, the Avia A5020W running shoe is marked down from $44.95 to $28.99. The same coupon code listed above will make your total $23.99 with free shipping.
Victoria’s Secret has the Colin Stuart Patent Platform Sandal marked down from $58 to $24.99. It looks like gold and black are the only colors available at this point depending on the size selected. Use coupon code FREEVSSHIP for free shipping on 8/12/10 only.
Victoria’s Secret also offers the Colin Stuart Studded Sandal for $24.99, reduced from $75. It comes in natural, brown or black depending on size selected. Use the above coupon code for free shipping today only.
6pm has the RSVP Erinn in black, fuchsia, navy or white for $20.25 (MSRP $75).
6pm also has the RSVP Nell with teardrop peep toe in red, black, navy or grey for $23.22 (MSRP $85).
Aeropostale is having their Friends and Family sale that takes 30% off your order when you apply coupon code FFAUG at checkout until 8/15/10. They have a few flip flops and sneakers in their footwear section, but I like the slippers. These Aeropostale Striped Rugby Slippers are $14.99 before the code and $10.49 after. Five other color options are available.
Please note that prices on any of the above shoes can change at any time and availability may be limited.

Cheap Chick is back in business today, this time searching for shoes that are perfect for both the active summer lifestyle and the good ol’ wallet. She scoured her favorite bargain shoe store, 6pm, for the latest in good-looking casual shoes that are priced under $25 for those who need to satisfy their shoe shopping cravings for less. We’ll see flip flops and flats, but there’s a couple heels thrown in for good measure – because that’s how Cheap Chick rolls. Here’s what she found:
These Simple Glider shoes have an MSRP of $100 and they feature a leather upper and full grain leather lining and topsole, plus environmentally-friendly recycled materials used in the midsole and outsole. They look pretty comfy too. Get this pair for just $19.95 in black or brown.
Here’s another pair of eco-friendly shoes from Simple, the Simple Undertoe. These shoes are made of natural materials like organic cotton, bamboo, jute and recycled tires. They have a MSRP of $75, but are marked down to $19.95 in brown multi or pastel multi stripes or in solid black, natural and brown color options.
Lose the heels, keep the style with the Franco Sarto Journal strappy flat thong sandals, which feature a leather upper. Choose from black, pink, blue or brown for $20.70 (MSRP $69).
Add some bling-bling to your casual look with the Volatile Partay, which comes in silver, blue, black or brown for $24 (MSRP $59.99). There’s also a red version for $30.
Here’s another sparkly option, the Skechers Grace Kelly sequined wedge flip flop. Get it in brown with bronze sequins for $22.20 (MSRP $37).
Get a flip flop from the folks famous for their sheepskin boots. Ugg may be a love it or hate it kind of brand, but you have to admit these look super-comfy. The Ugg Tasmina flip flop in mango is offered for $25 (MSRP $50).
If you practically live in the water all summer long, you might like the Terrasoles Beyond flip flop, which has a anti-microbial footbed suited for going from wet to dry and back again. These come in pink, black or green with black sole for $22.43 (MSRP $39.95) or get a pink pair with white sole for $17.55.
Keep your casual look super-classic with the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Seasonal Ox for $22 (MSRP $44). I love the sky blue color, but it also comes in dark pink for the same price. There’s also a light orange version or a white pair with neon pink laces and trim, each for $26.40.
Now for a couple of heels under $25:
Nine West Jai black leather peep toe pump for $23.60 (MSRP $59).
RSVP Hana in red or black satin for $23.46 (MSRP $65).
Shipping adds a flat-rate $6.95 to any size order at 6pm and prices can change at any time.
Have a happy Saturday!

Cheap Chick is doing the happy dance because it’s Saturday and we’re finally having a beautiful warm day – a welcome break from the dreary, cold, icy weather that’s been prevalent here lately. What else makes Cheap Chick happy? Cute shoes on the cheap, of course. So, before this little birdie goes outside to do…well, what chicks normally do (flitting around, chirping, pecking for bugs, etc.), she thought she’d round up some of the best brand name shoes for $25 or less. All of these are offered by 6pm:

*This post is from 2010. See additional cute cheap shoes in more recent posts.*
As you may know, Cheap Chick has a love for finding shoes on the cheap (i.e. under $25) and even more so now that Valentine’s Day is coming up. She tends to get all gooey and sentimental about it around this time of year, in contrast to the bad little birdie alter-ego we’ve seen before, but it works out well for anyone looking for their own cute cheap shoes because she’s even fiercer when on the hunt. Since it is getting close to V-Day, Cheap Chick decided to totally focus on finding heels this time – since many like to get dressed up for the day of love – and she even threw a few pink and red pairs in for good measure. Here’s what she found:
Two Lips Ceporah in red satin and five other color options for $19.49 (MSRP $77.95) at 6pm. Update: Now $15.59.
Nine West Rocha in pink or blue for $19.75 (MSRP $79) at 6pm. Update: Now $15.80.

Cheap Chick wanted to add one boot to the mix:
Newport News Slouch Bootie in black or taupe for $24.99 (MSRP $49). Plus, there’s more cute boots under $25 at Newport News.
