With Shoe Prices On The Rise, Where Can You Score A Great Deal?

Gas prices stink. But up until now, us city folk have taken solace in the fact that we could walk to a majority of our destinations (or rely on mass transit) with a little help from some comfy shoes. But now, according to the Wall Street Journal, another kind of pump price is on the rise. Notoriously cheap shoe retailers like Payless and Nine West will be upping their prices as much as 15% within the next year. US customers can blame the rise in production costs in China, plus higher shipping costs, and, of course, the weak American dollar.

Alas, no more trips to Payless for mucho cheap deals on knock-off designer duds.  

However, as always, SheFinds believes there is always a deal out there to be had. We just have to seek it out.

Discount shoe retailers, Zappos and Piperlime, may not have mass chains around the country or well-known household names, but they certainly offer ongoing sales on incredibly adorable shoes. Right now, you can score these Boutique 9 silver ballerinas ($24, were $60) or Chinese Laundry snakeskin flats ($28, were $70) at Piperlime for more than half off their original prices.


At Zappos, we found these chocolate Sasha thongs ($175, were $230) and jeweled Vera thongs ($180, were $240) discounted up to 25%.

Piperlime has fantastic finds under $75 too. So shop the site for some great deals.
