The biggest shopping day of the year is almost upon us.
That’s right, ladies, we’re talking about Black Friday and the start of the Holiday shopping period. Before you get all caught up in trying to snag the best Christmas deals for your friends and family, why not give yourself the treat you deserve and pick out some gorgeous new shoes for yourself?
Don’t know where to begin? Check out our Black Friday and Cyber Monday Shoe Shopping Tips!
1) Look Online
Why brave the crazy crowds looking for your fabulous new pumps or cozy boots? These days, many reputable shoe retailers will let you take full advantage of the Black Friday deals from the comfort of your living room. Some retailers will even have online exclusive deals that are not to be missed. Check ahead of time whether your favorite sites provide email alerts that can help you get in quick before the best bargains are sold out.
2) Balance comfort and style
If you do decide to rough it and attend some Black Friday sales in person, you might as well do so in comfort and style. Make sure you’re ready to stand in line for hours on end by purchasing some stylish but sensible shoes before the big day. Ballet flats might be tempting, but they won’t protect your feet as much as a pair of sturdy sneakers or boots if someone steps on your toes. Trust us – forgo the heels at all costs.
3) Be bold
Take advantage of the Black Friday Shoe sales by picking out some gutsy heels you would not normally wear. Sometimes, the best way to break out of a fashion rut and embrace a new season is to try on something new and unusual. If you love your new shoes, that’s awesome. If you decide in a few weeks that they’re really not you, you have still bought them at a fraction of their regular price tag and might be able to re-gift them for Christmas.
Some sites and shoe stores have whole sections dedicated to ‘fashion forward’ shoes. For something edgy but not too crazily out there, check out the red, spiked Regan pump by Bettie Page. The classic, elegant peep toe design offers a wonderful contrast from the grunge inspired spikes.
4) Stock up on staples
Although Black Friday is a great time to take the plunge and buy some new styles, it’s also the perfect time to renew your old favorites. With a chilly December just around the corner, why not treat yourself to a new pair of boots to match your winter wardrobe? We love ankle boots this season due to their versatility. If you already own a black pair, invest in some chocolate brown leather or suede boots that will help to soften any look. Opt for lace ups for a more classic design and a thick platform heel for both height and comfort.
