Saks Fifth Avenue, finally, started a markdown on shoes that we can shop on. The standing discount was 40% but many styles are now an additional 20% off. The total savings is now about 50% on many brands.
Taking a closer look we found classic Jimmy Choo knee-high boots that are now $600 from $1250, Giuseppe Zanetti crystal-studded jagged mule pumps are $600 from $1850 and Provenza Schouler studded calf-high boots are $588 from $1050. The additional markdown does not apply to Valentino, Givenchy, Prada or Manolo.
The fine print says that prices will return to the 40% discount at the conclusion of business on December 24. We all know once stores open after Christmas, the discount may even be less. Just watch out for items with low stock.
