SNEAKER QUEENS!! I have a few tips for ya! I always get questions about my shoes, especially when it comes to sneakers. Here are my favorite tricks:
If you have smaller feet (size 7 & down), shop in the kids section! The shoes are just as cool & the price tags are even cooler. To my gals with bigger feet, shop in the men’s clearance section!! Without fail I always find a steal of a deal when I do this. If you are buying the shoes to actually work out in, make sure they are your size. However if you are just buying them to wear around town you can size up, as long as they don’t look ridiculous. I wear a size 9 in women’s but can usually get away with a size 10 or 10.5 in mens!!
Shop the Outlets
Outlets are the perfect place to buy marked down sneakers. My most unique shoes have been purchased at outlets. Sometimes if there is a small mistake on the shoe they will go straight to the outlets before even hitting the shelves. I once got a brand new pair of white, high top Chuck Taylors at an Outlet in San Diego for $15 because the logo was printed on a little crooked. At first glance you can't even tell but they couldn't sell them full price in a typical store.
Ross, TJ Maxx, Marshall's... WHAT AMAZING PLACES!! All of my favorite boots & sneakers are from stores like these. It's always hit or miss so you can't count on finding things but you find the gems when you least expect it.
Yes, yes... thrift store shoes can be super gross. I KNOW. I mainly find boots at thrift stores but every once & awhile I come across a mint pair of converse or nikes & I do a little happy dance. Trust me it's happened. My mom & Juvol are witnesses.
Those are a few little tips for upping your shoe game on a budget. Was this post helpful? Let me know in the comments!
