Tips For Getting Great Deals On Women’s High Heel Shoes
Do you love high heel shoes? If you do, then you know how expensive they can be! Even on a college student’s budget, there is no way I could buy a new pair of women’s shoes every time I wanted some. Luckily, a few tips and tricks anyone is willing to put in the extra effort can use to find great deals on beautiful shoes of all shapes and styles.
1) Check sites like eBay.com and Craigslist.org before purchasing from an individual or store that sells high heel shoes online or offline. On these websites, numerous people will sell their gently used pairs at greatly reduced prices just for convenience’s sake because they have too many pairs. This is especially true on eBay. Please do your research before committing to any deals you find because not all deals are what they seem.
2) Try shoes on in person before purchasing them online. This is the best way to make sure both parties are satisfied with their purchase, and it also helps ensure that these shoes either fit or don’t fit properly before you buy them. If something doesn’t feel right or if they aren’t what you expected, do NOT buy the shoes!
3) On eBay, never bid more than 1/3 of what the seller wants for a pair of shoes unless it’s a very popular brand like Louboutin, Christian Dior, or Prada. This will generally be enough to scare off other bidders and allow you to purchase the shoes for a small fraction of their original asking price. If there is only one bidder, they may be more open to negotiations!
4) Get your girlfriend or female friends shopping with you. I know this seems counter-intuitive, but it works well. Most women won’t tell each other if they’re getting a great deal on something and then sell them later. They’ll use it as an opportunity to bond and share information on more great deals like that in the future. This is also helpful because most men don’t know anything about high heel shoes, so it makes it much easier to figure out if the shoes are legitimate!
5) Do not wear high heel shoes when shopping for them! It makes slipping into them much easier and also helps your feet get used to the sensation of wearing high heels. Take a break and walk it off before trying more on if you overdo it. Your feet may not be accustomed to how they feel in these shoes, so if you try too many too quickly, you could end up with major pain or even blisters later on that prevent you from wearing them at all!
One last word of advice: once you find a good deal, don’t hesitate to pick up several pairs! They will eventually go out of style and then turn into a huge money pit. If I had gotten five instead of one during my college years, I’d have been able to retire a long time ago!
