Cheap-A-Thon: Casual cute shoes under $25

Saturday, June 5th, 2010

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!

Shoe Buzz: Jimmy Choo & Ugg team up, Ivanka Trump shoe line + more

Friday, January 15th, 2010

There’s always something new to talk about when it comes to the world of shoes and I, for one, am definitely not complaining.  I could talk shoes all day.  So, who’s creating shoe buzz this week?  Let’s check it out:





Luxe shoe company Jimmy Choo may have just worked with H&M to create a lower-priced shoe collection late last year, but the unlikely pairings don’t stop there.  WWD reports that they also have plans to do a 5-piece collection with sheepskin boot maker Ugg Australia this fall and sell them under the label Ugg & Jimmy Choo.  The boots will feature Ugg construction combined with Jimmy Choo design elements, but the pricing definitely leans more towards Choo territory at $595-$795.  You may love or hate Uggs, but Jimmy Choo president Tamara Mellon is definitely a fan – according to her, they are the only shoes you’ll find in her wardrobe besides her own brand.  Very interesting indeed.

Nashville-based shoe charity Soles4Souls will donate 250,000 shoes to victims of the earthquake in Haiti.  They originally committed 100,000 pairs, but received many more donations than expected from their partners in the footwear industry and the community.  According to their website, “a pair of new shoes is absolutely necessary in order for the Haitian survivors to be effective in rescue and rebuilding efforts amidst broken glass, twisted metal and raw sewage.”

Already dreaming of hot summer shoes?  Check out WSA Today, who gives a rundown of shoe trends for summer 2010.  Among the trends noted are playful color, exotics, neon and floral texture.

Ivanka Trump just got married in October and now she’s kicking off the new year by announcing a shoe line, which will be licensed through Marc Fisher Footwear.  Marc Fisher says, “We believe Ivanka has something fresh and distinctive to offer in what is otherwise a celebrity-saturated market.”  She does have a classic, sophisticated style and I liked her on The Apprentice, so I’m looking forward to seeing what she has to offer, although I do think it’s quite a challenge to stand out in the sea of celebs who are doing the same.  She also has a high-end jewelry line and may branch out to apparel and more accessories.

Ugg sale at 6pm + Via Spiga shoes for $49.95

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

6pm is known for their brand-specific supersales, such as the Ugg sale that started today, which they call their Ugg-stravaganza.  Ugg shoes aren’t discounted very often and this sale takes up to 80% off , so it makes sense that all the boots are already gone (boo).  However, there’s still a selection of Ugg sandals, wedges and flip flops priced $30 and under to choose from.  Shipping adds $6.95 and the sale ends 9/15/09 or while supplies last.

I’m way more enthused with the Via Spiga selection, most of which are marked down to $49.95.  There are really cute boots, heels, sandals and flats at up to 80% off retail (which is normally in the $100-$300 range).  I have a bit of a weakness for leopard print shoes, so I’m eyeing this Via Spiga Dory peep toe pump.  They are $124.23 at Overstock right now, so the $49.95 price tag at 6pm is looking really good.  This sale is one day only and expires 9/8/09.
