It’s almost July and stores are making room for Pre-Fall and Fall collections, which means Spring/Summer is on sale. Now is the time to get designer shoes at not so designer prices.
The fit of a shoe depends on the design, shape and volume of the shoe last – the part of the shoe that represents the anatomical information of the foot. Designer shoes have a higher quality last, which is one of the main reasons why they last so long and are so comfortable. They can still be expensive even when on sale, but when you consider that they can last 10 plus years ( I still wear a 12 year old pair of Gucci shoes) if taken care of properly, they make for a great investment – just make sure they are of a classic nature.
There is nothing like a well made pair of shoes. Trust me, your feet will definitely be thanking you.
I went shopping for you at my 2 favorite places to shop, Barneys New York and Net A Porter. Enjoy!
