mindy.jpgThe autumn collections are almost in, the sales racks are looking bare, and if you want to grab yourself a bargain, you're probably going to have a long, hard hunt on your hands. Or you would have, had we not done the hunting for you. Here are five pairs of shoes you can buy now for £25 and under, starting off with these 'Mindy' slingbacks from Oasis. With their cute, perforated bow and simple silver slingback, I'm not quite sure how these made it to the sales rack., They're still available in sizes 3 and 4 - stash them away for next summer!

These brown 'Cinam' sandals from Faith are officially breaking my heart. We featured them back in January, and despite my best efforts to convince myself that I really could afford the £80 price tag at the time, my overdraft said no, so I passed them up. Imagine my joy, then, when I found them on sale for just £25 - and imagine my sorrow when I discovered they're only available in a size 8...
