Tis the season for shoe sales and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve admitted that I’m trying to refrain from buying shoes this year but there is always room in the budget for practical shoes that will be around more than one or two seasons.

If you’re looking to scoop up some deals on shoes there are a few things to keep in mind. The first is quality, look for well made shoes by noted designers that will stand the test of time. Some brands you may want to consider are Dolce Vita, Frye, Stuart Weitzman, and Tory Burch, although there are a number of quality shoe designers that offer deep discounts on their last season items.

Which brings us to rule number two when buying shoes on deep discount, you want something timeless, never trendy. If you buy the trendiest new look, even at 90% off it’s probably not worth it because you’ll wear it once or twice and then it’s woefully out of style. Some timeless styles are black knee high boots, simple solid colored pumps, most athletic shoes, and some simple sandals in neutral colors.

The smartest shoe shoppers know that a quality designer pair of shoes can last you several seasons and still look great, finding these classic pieces on sale only makes the purchase a better deal.
