Last week we moved over 4K total pairs of shoes to our sale section. For some, it’s time to break up, for others, we are down to a few pairs in a few colors and we simply need to see other people. It’s about moving on. It’s about change. It’s about…”it’s not you it’s me.” But in this moment of letting go and moving forward—we are offering up to you, the shoe addicted fans of our site and blog, deep discounts on shoes that just might change your life. Here are my picks of the top five shoes from our sale section that could cause you to implode.
RECESSIONISTA MUST HAVE NO. 5: THE JAX BOOT.
I started hating every girl I saw wearing ankle boots. Not because I hated them so much—but rather because I wanted to be them. Then, I met the Jax. This shoe was like a first match.com date that went 24 hours. I now own it in all colors and seldom take it off. You should see me on the eliptical in this bad boy. Very few pairs in stock—but priced to move so don’t wait on this one.
RESSESSIONISTA MUST HAVE NO 4: CORALINE.
It started as a flirtation—i bought it in black. Then the neons, just when I promised myself I was done, that I could quit, the velvet came out. This shoe is such a staple in my closet, I don’t feel bad about the multiple colorways that adorn my shoe shelf—and at most warm weather times, my feet. This insanely well styled style from MESSECA NYC is a win at any price—and even cuter on clearance!
RECESSIONISTA MUST HAVE NO.3: RUZAK
I’ll keep in simple. My boyfriend of 3 years broke up with me over a fight we has about toothpaste. This is not a typo. Let’s just say I let two weeks pass–hit the eliptical and bought these shoes. I placed them on the dresser then waited for the exact moment to wear them for a run in. BAM! Let’s just say we’ve been back together for over a year now and I switched toothpaste brands. These shoes bring back old loves, new flings, and fawned over crushes. They do things to your legs you won’t believe.
RECESSIONISTA MUST HAVE NO. 2 LITA
Who even cares if you like patchwork. I mean. Lita on sale? Done. Click. Cart. Bam.
RECESSIONISTA MUST HAVE NO. 1: The ARIZONA
A tried and true Portland shoe-staple can be found in the shootie, or, if you dare, the Sho-bootie. With that said, the Arizona, by Jeffrey Campbell is the ideal version. In this multi-faceted vintage reincarnate I can ride my ten speed to a bark yard fire pite while I drink a vodka cran out of a to-go mug from stumptown. Get into this seasonless shoe in so many major colors.
