If I spent forty thousand dollars on shoes and have no place to live, I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes.” – Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City
It amazes me how many online retail clubs are popping up these days from shoes to handbags to jewelry. Most of these clubs will ask you a series of style questions so that they can select a grouping of styles that fit you the best. If you sign up to one of these shoe clubs, each month you’ll receive an email reminding you to view your “closet” or “showroom” so that you don’t miss out on a pair of new heels, flats, boots, etc. Most of these clubs are offering 20 to 25% off your first pair.
Because of my love affair for shoes and a “good deal” I’ve listed the top six online shoe clubs and what they’re all about. Happy savvy shoe shopping!
1. Shoe Mint
Newest club to join amongst the others is ShoeMint bringing you fashion icon and actress Rachel Bilson, the vision of celebrated stylist Nicole Chavez, and the shoe-making expertise of the legendary Steve Madden. All shoes for the price of $79.98 each.
2. Sole Society
At Sole Society registration is free and easy. Simply take the style quiz and discover your personal Style Bio. Then, they’ll send you an online selection of designer quality on-trend shoes picked especially for you. Choose your favorite heel, wedge, flat or bootie for just $49.95 per month. There’s no obligation to purchase, registration is free and they will not charge your credit card until you buy your first pair. Remember to make a selection or skip by the 5th of each month (so you don’t get charged).
