The Ultimate Guide to Buying Cheap Shoes


Every woman wants a walk-in closet full of shoes fit for every occasion. However, Manolos, Louboutins and Jimmy Choos may not always fit in the budget for most of us. Thankfully, you can always purchase cheap shoes that won’t make a dent in your bank account. Less expensive shoes are not necessarily ones that break easily. If you know where to look and when to buy, then you can purchase shoes that are not only cheap but also of high quality. Here are a few tips on what to look for.

 Why Buy Cheap Shoes?

If you are a fashionista who follows new trends with the turn of the season, then you may want to opt for purchasing shoes that are a bit more affordable. Trendy shoes will not always be in season and the pair that you buy today may be gathering dust in your closet a few months from now. By purchasing cheap trendy shoes, you can feel less guilty about only wearing them a few times.


Sometimes, waiting for the right time to buy shoes is the key to finding the perfect pair that fits right within your budget. If you know when to look, you might even find shoes from your favorite designer at a fraction of the cost. Check out sale announcements and visit different stores to see if they have anything on sale at discounted prices. Signing up to receive newsletters is a great way to stay ahead of the game!


There are a lot of stores and online sites from which you can purchase cheap shoes. Thousands of options are available online if you take the time to look. In most cases, these online stores have sale categories where you can browse through a wide selection of shoes that are not so expensive. If you know what you are looking for, you might just find the perfect pair for your casualwear or for a night out with your friends. If you have unusually small or large feet, you are in luck as the most common sizes are less likely to be in the sale.


As soon as you find a pair of shoes that you are interested in, there are some things to keep in mind before you make the purchase. Make sure the shoes are the right size by fitting them and walking around in them. If you are purchasing from an online store, be sure to check their size chart to get rid of the hassle of exchanging them for a different size later on. If you are purchasing shoes at a discounted price, be sure to meticulously check the shoes for signs of damage. You may not be spending a lot of money on the pair but you still have to make sure that you get your money’s worth.

    I am all for getting deals but sometimes you get what you pay for. I have gone really cheap and have had shoes fall apart.

    Certain shoes I can’t go cheap on like Uggs because I know how good the real ones are. Also I can’t buy cheap flats because I get blisters…cheap tennis shoes are the first thing I do buy though!
