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).
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!
