For some reason we always thought of Robert Clergerie footwear as delicate dainty shoes. Today we spotted a 50% off sign and ran in to check out the discount.
We're not sure if we may have been mistaken by the overall Clergerie aesthetic but what we saw was not dainty or delicate. As a matter of fact, most of the shoes and boots could have easily been mistaken as orthopedic. Was this a collection gone wrong or have we been mislead by a fancy logo?
Taste aside, the Madison Avenue boutique has discounted their entire winter collection 50% off. Winter loafers, boots, sandals, heels and flats are all marked down by half. Most shoes retail for under $500 at full price and high boots-- the best looking of the batch-- we still under $1000.
While on the topic, can someone clue us in: Is this normal Clergerie or a design experiment gone terribly wrong?
