Shoe Steal

4th of July Shoe Sales

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

*Update: This post is from 2010.  Check out 2011 4th of July shoe sales*

It’s 4th of July weekend and time for plenty of fun, but it’s also a great opportunity to save some dough all-American style, especially right now while we’re starting to see big markdowns on summer merchandise.  Independence Day sales are literally everywhere and there are definitely some great shoe sales that have already started, so I thought I would round them up into one big list for anyone who might be shoe shopping this weekend.  I’ll also be updating this list over the next few days anytime I come across more sales and coupons.  So, without further adieu, here’s the rundown of what I’ve seen so far:

American Eagle is having one of their awesome clearance sales right now that also applies to their selection of clearance shoes.  You get an extra 30% off automatically at checkout for a limited time, but then you can also apply coupon code 32944527 to get another 20% off (expiration unknown).  That makes for some super-low prices on their selection of flats, flat sandals and sneakers, like the AE Grommet Sandal (pictured above) that’s on sale for $19.95 and drops to just $11.17 after the code.  Availability can be limited for some styles, so it’s best to shop by size in the top right to narrow it down.  Shipping adds $7, but it’s free if you buy 3 or more items until 7/5/10. is also having a sale on a sale and it takes an additional 50% off already-reduced items.  Browse their women’s sale shoes and, if you see something you like, you’ll see the price slashed in half at checkout.  I like the femininity exuding from the Guess Journ, which features eyelet cutouts and a corset-like lace-up detail on the back.  It’s available for $89.99 in black or white, but the price is reduced to $45 after the discount.  If you spend $100, get free shipping with coupon code FREESHIP100 for a limited time.  The sale expiration is unknown, but it’s likely for the upcoming holiday weekend only.

If you’ve got your mind set on a pair of Chinese Laundry shoes for less, shop and get 30% off any sale shoes when you apply coupon code CL30SALE at checkout.  Make a dramatic statement in the Chinese Laundry Slippery Slope, which has a mix of exotic patterns.  They’re marked down to $69.99 (regularly $119) in black or brown and, after the code, they’ll be yours for $48.99.  The code expires 7/12/10.

80’s Purple offers cutting edge shoe brands like 80%20, Dolce Vita, Industry, Report and more and you can get an additional 25% off your purchase with coupon code fireworks during their Red, White & Purple Sale.  The Dolce Vita Niko wedge in black or brown is priced at $172, but it falls to $129 after the code.  The sale expires 7/5/10.

Shoemall is having a Fourth of July shoe sale and it takes 20% off your purchase via code JULY4.  It applies to regularly-priced items only and shipping is also free.  If you’ve had a gold glitter pump on the brain since Sex and the City 2, you might like the Steve Madden Caryssa platform pump.  It’s $129.95 before the code and $103.96 after.  The coupon expires 7/6/10.

Steve Madden is taking 40% off clearance shoes when you apply coupon code 40CLEARANCE at checkout.  Get a nice price on a clog with plenty of edge, the Steven by Steve Madden Durann, which is so on-trend and marked down from $149.95 to $99.99.  After the coupon, get them for $59.99 in black, brown or red.  The coupon expires 7/11/10.

Koh’s has a new coupon that takes 20% off any purchase, including shoes.  Enter TOPSECRET during checkout to get the discount, which you can even apply to Skechers Shape-Ups (just tested it and it worked).  The Skechers Shape-Ups Action Packed High-Performance Shoes are on sale for $99.99 (originally $109.95), but they are $79.99 after the code, which expires 7/4/10.  Update: This code is now expired, but use code JULYSAVE for 15% off until 7/11/10.

Bloomingdales is having a sale that takes 25% to 40% off select items, including women’s shoes.  On top of that, get another 15% off when you use coupon code SAVE15 in the shopping cart.  I checked it the sale and there’s definitely plenty of low prices going on, but one in particular is the Corso Como Notable studded wedge.  It’s already marked down from $159 to $59.62, but it goes even lower to $50.68 after the coupon, which expires 7/5/10.

More sales & coupons for shoes:

Lord & Taylor: Buy more and save more on select sandals: 30% off one pair, 35% off two and 40% off three.  If the shoes you want don’t qualify for this discount, get 20% off regular, sale and clearance items instead with coupon code JULY4 until 7/5/10.  Some exclusions apply.

Shoebuy: 20% off with coupon code JULY4 and free shipping.

Macy’s: Extra 25% off clearance shoes (prices reflect discount) and free shipping on $99 or more with coupon code FIREWORKS until 7/5/10.

Shoesteal: Extra 20% off with coupon code JULY4 until 7/5/10.

That’s all for now, but be sure to check back for more shoes sales for the 4th!

Weekend Shoe Sales: Flip Flops, FitFlops, ToneUps & more

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

You may plan on buying some shoes this weekend, but you can also make your piggy bank happy in the process.  I’ve rounded up some shoe shopping discounts that will put a smile on your face and keep your little piggy nice and full, metaphorically speaking.  Here’s what I found:

Piperlime is having their Sweet Deal Event that takes up to 30% off a selection of women’s shoes.  There are plenty of styles to choose from, but I noticed a good price on the FitFlop Walkstar in red, which is on sale for $28.50 with free shipping (regularly $50).  That’s practically in Cheap Chick territory (i.e. under $25).  The sale ends 5/30/10.

Old Navy has a selection of cheap flip flops for throwing on at the pool or beach (or anywhere else for that matter). Their classic flops are normally $3.50, but for a limited time you can get 2 pairs for $4 or choose from select colors that are $1.49 a pair.  There are also additional styles listed on this page that are 2 for $5.  If you plan to spend at least $75 on your order, get 15% off and free shipping with coupon code ONCAMP15 until 5/23/10.  There’s also a similar deal at American Eagle.  Buy any pair of shorts and get a select pair of flip flops for $1 for a limited time.

6pm is having their latest round of brand-specific shoe sales, including MIA shoes for up to 65% off, I like the cute fringe MIA Hannah pump, which is marked down to $24.68 (MSRP $73).  The sale expires 5/23/10.

Famous Footwear takes an additional 20% off any order, even sale shoes, when you use coupon code USWEEKLY at checkout.  I noticed that their Skechers Tone-Ups, which are similar to the FitFlop, are discounted to a super-low price.  Originally $54.99, the Skechers Cali Tone-Ups are on sale for $29.99 and reduced even further to $23.99 after applying the code.  The coupon expires 5/31/10.

Shoesteal always has great discounts on shoes and you can get an even better price when you apply coupon code SUNSTEAL for another 15% off.  I noticed some heavily discounted L.A.M.B. shoes, like the L.A.M.B. Gypsy for $142.80 (originally $356.99).  After the code, get them for $121.38.  Sizes are limited for most styles, but you can check out all of their L.A.M.B. shoes and choose your size at the top to narrow it down to what’s available for you. The coupon expires 6/30/10.

More shoes coupons & sales:

25% off and free shipping at Shoebuy with code EMAILFRIENDS10 until 5/23/10.

20% off and free shipping at with code VISA until 10/31/10.

Buy 1 pair of shoes, get the 2nd pair for $15 at Charlotte Russe.

15% off regular prices and 20% off sale and clearance with code BIG at Lord & Taylor.

Happy shoe shopping!

All shoes under $30 at ShoeSteal

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010


Hurry over to for their Anniversary Blowout Sale, which marks all shoes down to $29.99 or less.  While it can be hit and miss to find a style you like along with your size, there are plenty of great deals to be had from a variety of brands, like Seychelles, Betseyville, Hale Bob, Calvin Klein, Steve Madden and many more.  You can always select your size before browsing to narrow your options – and avoid the disappointment of finding something you love with only one size left (and it’s not yours).  Also, keep in mind that returns aren’t allowed for items bought during this sale.  I like the Luichiny Shine in brown, which is reduced from $81.95 to $29.99 and still currently available in sizes 6, 7, 8 and 10.  Sale ends today, 1/19/10.

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.

Or, peruse the women’s athletic shoes at Shoesteal, the clearance site for, for extra-good prices. Then, get another 20% off at checkout with coupon code BUBBLY20 until 1/10/10.  The Asics Gel-1120V in red or blue is on sale for $59.99, but falls to $47.99 after coupon.

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.

*See the latest Skechers Shape-Ups discounts.*

The New Balance for Nine West collection is on sale at Nine West.  You’ll also enjoy an extra 30% or 50% off at checkout, making these stylish kicks as low as $25 with free shipping.  The New Balance for Nine West Dedra is reduced to $34.99.

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.

Update 2: Get $10 off any pair of athletic shoes at DSW using coupon code FIT10 until 1/13/10.
