It’s always fun to shop at a discount store and find current season merchandise for less money than a department store. While browsing DSW we found this season’s Balenciaga booties and Chelseas priced from $539 to $649 (normally $800 to $1100).
Upon further investigation, we found Jimmy Choo flats for $399 to $499 (normally $425 to $500) and elegant silk Manolo Blahnik pumps for$499 to $599. In addition, we found a selection of Fendi, Prada Sport, Emilio Pucci, and Sergio Rossi shoes.
If you look closely, in the same section, you will find Miu Miu, Giuseppe Zanotti and Ralph Lauren Collection discounted 50% off. We were a bit disappointed to see loads of the same past season Gucci pumps and flats for $230 to $260. We recall seeing the same styles on clearance racks last season.
Heading over to those famous clearance racks, we found most designer footwear to be marked down only 30%. With some searching we found some nice Sergio Rossi suede boots, Gucci wedges and Ralph Lauren Collection oxfords.
Although you won’t find the Balenciagas and Manolos online, DSW.com is stocked with a huge amount of designer shoes, including Alaia, YSL and Valentino. In the clearance tab of the site, we spotted loads of Sergio Rossi boots for $250 to $450, Giuseppe Zanottis for $200 to $450. Even our favorite Zanotti crystal ballet flats were $450 from a retail price of $930. While the online prices tend to be a bit higher than in-store, there’s never the problem finding a missing shoe in a pile of mess.
Regardless of where you shop, be on the lookout for DSW’s frequent coupons. At the very least, you should be able to score an extra $50 off.
