With a major spring and summer shoe trend being loafers, we were really excited to check out the Tod’s and Hogan sample sale down in the Meatpacking district. Interestingly, the sale is not affiliated with Tod’s and Hogan directly.
Usually an independent sale would deter us but Tods isn't usually steeply discounted. As a matter of fact, Shop it to Me, which is amazing for tracking online sales from assorted retailers, gave us a great tidbit of information. "Of all women's brands, Tod's has the lowest average discount. On average, the brand is discounted 25% off, compared to the overall average discount of 44% off," according to Shop it to Me analysis.
Information like that is just enough to get our mouth watering for a big markdown. The prices for Tod’s handmade leather shoes range from $110 for flat sandals to $229 for boots. Tod’s famous loafers and driving shoes with rubber stud detailing are available for $129. Unfortunately, the selection was rather matronly and we didn’t find any brightly colored driving shoes, as we were hoping. There are also some cute Tod’s heels available for $149.
In addition, we found lots of $99 Hogan sneakers, as well as plentiful $89 sandals. Their demure styling, however, isn’t really to our taste. Since there are no plans to drop the prices, we suggest you go early for the best selection. After all, Tod’s retail prices range anywhere from $350 to $600.
Sizes range from 34 to 40 but those who wear a size 37 will be delighted with the plentiful selection. There were supposedly a small selection of men’s shoes and women's handbags in but they eluded us entirely since they were not prominently displayed.
If you're a true Tod's fan we suggest browsing this sale. After all, Shop it to Me never lies.
