Bargain Tuesday: Let's go outlet shoe shopping!
Forget the seasonal whims of high street sales: serious bargain hunters are all into outlet shopping nowadays, and there's no denying that the best way to get the lowest prices on bigger brands is to do your research and hunt down designer outlets where the good stuff comes cheap. But finding it can be time consuming, and not everyone wants to spend hours rummaging through designer jumble sales that could be miles out of town.
For those of us who don't have the spare time to leap on to a train and schlep off to Bicester every other week, or who just find discount stores a little daunting, the appearance of more Outlet-style stores on our good friend the internet is good news indeed. Cloggs is one shoe shopping site that's recently opened up an outlet, and there are loads of great deals here for savvy bargain shoppers.
So, after a virtual rummage, what have we found?
Some of the brands we love that are on sale here with tempting discounts applied include ASH, whose chic casual shoes are always a little more expensive than your average high street fare and rightly so thanks to their quality and strength of design. In the Ash sale at Cloggs, prices start at just £30 and there are a few styles on our radar already in there. In particular, there's a very good deal on Ugg Australia's gorgeously soft and summery cappuccino wedge sandals - at just £39 I'm massively tempted - I nearly bought these when they were £70!
You'll also find pieces from French Connection, Havaianas, Frye, Doc Martens, Ted Baker and more, including eco-friendly trainer brand Simple Shoes, which have long been a bit pricey in the UK but are available from just £22 at Cloggs Outlet. Ideal weekend wear, they'll make you feel great inside and out.
