Columbus Day shoe sales + shoe news

Saturday, October 9th, 2010

If you’re on the hunt for your latest pair of cute shoes, it’s definitely a good time to shop while many stores are having shoe sales for Columbus Day.  There are plenty of ways to save while shoe shopping this weekend and I’ve gathered up some of the best bargains I’ve seen so you can keep your feet fashionable and your wallet happy (which is always a win).  Plus, I’ve thrown a bit of interesting shoes news in for good measure.  Here’s what I found:

DSW was offering a free purse with a $39.95 or more order as of yesterday, but unfortunately they have already sold out.  The good news?  They are now offering $10 off a purchase of $10 or more using coupon code 7921DSW at checkout (exp 10/12) instead and you can stack it with their 920 code for 10% off and SHIPR for free shipping on $35 or more.  That cuts the price on the Moda Spana Chase Pump in leopard pictured above from $54.95 to $39.46 shipped.  All of these codes require signing into your DSW account.

Lord and Taylor takes 15% off your order using coupon code CDAY or, if you pay with a L&T credit card, CDAYPLUS (you get another 10% off that way).  They are also having a boot sale that takes 25% off one pair or 30% off two or more automatically at checkout.  When you combine the two offers, you definitely have the potential to save big.  The military-inspired Nine West Donley pictured above is normally $129.95 and drops to $96.75 in cart after 25% off, then to $82.24 after the CDAY code.

Macy’s is also having a buy more, save more sale on their selection of shoes.  Their Great Shoe Sale takes 15% off one pair, 20% off two or 30% off three or more when you enter GREATSHOES at checkout.  Shipping is also free on $99 or more.  You can find the biggest savings in clearance shoes, which are already reduced an additional 25% right now and are also eligible for the extra savings with the coupon.  For example, the Dolce Vita Cadiz mesh bootie above is marked down from $70 to $52.50 (retail $100) and is further reduced to just $36.76 after coupon.

Nine West is taking an extra 30% off select shoes and boots during their Columbus Day Sale.  The New Balance for Nine West Celestina lace sneaker above is way too cute and you can get it for $62.30 instead of $89 after the discount.  Shipping is also free. takes an extra 25% off sale shoes with coupon code 25SALE until 10/11.

At Payless, buy one and get 50% off your second item during the last few days of their latest BOGO sale (exp. 10/11).  Get another 20% off your order with coupon code 30526 (exp. 10/31). 

Guess takes 50% off select shoes and shipping is free.

Get an extra 25% off clearance at Aldo through 10/11 and free shipping.

Now, on to some shoe news:

A Mariah Carey shoe line is coming soon.  The singer is working with HSN on a collection of jewelry, footwear and perfume with a butterfly theme, which will be available at the end of November.

Steve Madden bought out Betsey Johnson and there’s also talk of a Katy Perry Steve Madden partnership in the works.

The world’s largest shoe department – in both physical size and the number of shoes offered for sale – opened last month at Selfridges in London.  The Shoe Galleries displays over 5,000 pairs of shoes.

She plays the ultimate shoe lover as Carrie on Sex and the City, but Sarah Jessica Parker tells In Touch magazine (in the October 4 issue) that she only owns seven pair of shoes.  If true, she must do a whole lot of borrowing from the designers for all of her fab red carpet looks (and who knew she was such a minimalist?).  On the other end of the spectrum, Kimora Lee Simmons admits to having “thousands” of shoes and closets all over the country to house her collection.

That’s all for now.  Have a great weekend!

Working out shoes on sale for your New Year’s resolution

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Got a New Year’s resolution for 2010?  If so, chances are you plan to either start an exercise program or up the ante on an existing one, which is one of the most common goals people set for themselves.  If you’re like me, you definitely love the results from working out, but you may need an extra kick in the pants to really get started – particularly after the free-for-all love-fest we call the holidays.  Of course, a cute pair of workout shoes can certainly provide motivation, especially when they are on sale and go along with another popular “spend less, save more” resolution many people make.  If you aim to slim both your waistline and your spending, try these sales out:

Check out the athletic shoes at Amazon, where you can typically find great sales (albeit pesky alternating prices for every size and color).  Get really low prices in their under $25 or $25-$50 section.  The classic Reebok Nylon Running Shoe (pictured above) in white/light grey or white is $31.75 in most sizes.

Get an extra 20% off sale items at, including their selection of women’s athletic shoes on sale. Use code WINTER at checkout until 1/4/10.  The Fila Storm Watch above is $45.60 before coupon, $36.48 after.

There’s always a deal to be had at 6pm.  Check out their selection of running shoes on sale with prices starting at $17 from brands like Kangaroos, Saucony, Nike, Asics and more.  I like the Kangaroos Magnolia in three color choices for $32.78 (retail $59.95).  Update: 6pm has Nike shoes on sale for 60% off today 1/5/10 only.

Kohls has plenty of working out shoes on sale and they take another 20% off with coupon code ATHLETIC20 until 1/7/10.  The Adidas Duramo trail running shoe is on sale for $44.99, but drops to $35.99 after coupon.  Update: This coupon code excludes Skechers Shape-ups, but you can use new coupon codes JANSAVE15 for 15% off any order or JANTAKE20 for 20% off $100 until 1/6/10.  They both work on Shape-ups.  Update2: Use coupon code EXTRA20 for an additional 20% off any order, including Shape-ups, until 1/19/10.  That takes another $20 off Skechers Shape-ups priced at $99.

Update: Piperlime is taking an extra 20% off sale items today, 1/5/10, only.  The coupon code is TREAT4ME and you can apply it to their selection of athletic shoes on sale.  I love the pink New Balance 993 for $89.99 (regularly $140) before coupon, $71.99 after.

Sale Spotlight: 50% or more off shoes at Boscovs

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

Boscovs is currently having an @ Least 50% off Sale, which discounts a selection of women’s dress shoes, boots, athletic styles, slippers and other styles.  There are some super-low prices going on for brands like Madden Girl, New Balance, Rampage, Aerosoles and more.  Let’s check out some of the deals:


This is such a great deal.  The Madden Girl Pecan is listed for $40-$50 in most places, but it’s just $9.99 during this sale.  It’s a sharp black pump with trendy cutout details and peep toe.  $10 can go super-fast, but you can make it last and last with this style.


Here’s another versatile, but trendy style from Rampage.  The Rampage Carli is a patent mary jane with 3 inch heel and black elastic strap.  This cute pair is perfect for work or play and comes in wine, black or gray for $19.99.  Sizes are limited in wine.


I like the simplicity of this slip-on ankle bootie with a comfortable 2-inch heel.  The price is also incredibly low.  Get the Judith Karen in black or brown for just $12.49, marked down from $49.99.


This sale has some really amazing boot deals.  If fact, all of their boots are less than $30 with lots of cute styles to choose from.  See all boots here.  Pictured is the Aerosoles Archive high shaft boot, which was once $99.99, but is now marked down to $24.99.  You can get them in black or brown (no size 7.5).


Here’s another really good price on an ankle boot.  The Liz Cole bootie could definitely be a wardrobe staple with its appealing design and 2-inch heel.  This style is $14.99 in black or brown.  It’s also available in wide width.


Athletic shoes from New Balance can be hard to find on sale at this price, especially with any size availability.  This New Balance All-Terrain WT479 in khaki, chocolate and orange is $34.99, marked down from $69.99.  Other New Balance styles on sale can be seen here.


If you’re looking for something of the soft and cozy variety, check out the slipper deals.  There are plenty of styles to choose from, all under $20 and many $10 and under.  Pictured is the Dearfoams Fairisle slipper with decorative pom-poms.  It comes in three color options, each for $8.


If you spend $100 or more, an extra 10% is discounted at checkout.  Shipping adds a flat $9.95 no matter how many items are in the order.  Sale ends 2/21/09.
