These shoes are not that cute and the price is a bit steep. I found that the store Ross Dress for less in my hometown sells Steve Madden shoes for $15 to $20 a pair. They may be last years styles but who cares. My daughter just got a pair of tan sandals with a high wedge heel and peep toe for $15 there last week.

I have big feet so this is a great site for me!

If you have a closet full of shoes and you end up paying 200 for each pair of shoes isn’t that money tossed down the toliet because how often do you really wear these 200 dollar shoes.

the blue one are cute, BUT i bet you could go to target and get some heels with big polka dots on them. Polka dots seem to be a huge trend this season and i love it! The other shoes are just ugly! If i’m going to spend around $100 on heels i would way rather buy them at dillards or macy’s!

wow. im totally in love with these. how did i not know about this!!!!

leigh zazove on

Im obsessed! I love the Dolce Vita shoes…and the Matt Bernsons. I think the website is pretty reasonable.. compared to Zappos and a few others I’ve used on line before. and my roommates have size 11 and 12… so they are dying. great deal…thanks. and keep ’em coming

mgm on

They are not that cute for that price. I would only spend that kind of money on shoes from Victoria Secret and they are delivered!

Jenny on

Hmmm…it’s so weird how everything is based on where you live. I’m from a city area and the prices of these shoes are extremely reasonable to me…don’t get me wrong, I still buy from cheaper stores like Victoria’s Secret and Target (although the quality isn’t always there), but pretty much me and my friends consider shoes that are under $200 a bargain.

ucokaty on

i don’t think it’s so much a regional difference… i think it’s a socio economic difference. Different classes can afford different price ranges of EVERYTHING from cars to shoes to homes, etc. I am middle middle class and i think someone that buys $200.00 is well upper middle class at the least! Nothing wrong with that it’s great if you are making that kinda money :)

jenny on

Lol, the thing is I don’t make great money for where i live (NYC). Sometimes I feel like I’m getting ripped off….one of my best friends is from Texas and when she moved up here and payed $6 for a beer she had a heart attack, meanwhile I’m like what’ s wrong with $6 for a beer? It sucks because it’s really expensive here, but I grew up here so I guess I’m use to it.

ucokaty on

yeah i’ll agree with that! cost of living is CRAZY everywhere but where i live to me! I would die if my tab said $6.00 haha! you would make more in nyc for what you do then if you lived here, OK, but everything is more expensive in NYC, so it evens out! B/c i know a house here and actual land is like probably 1/4 what it would be in NYC, well not that you can get LAND there haha you know what i’m getting at! And don’t think i’m a hick, b/c i live in a suburb and i have a desk job:) I love Banna Reublic and only carry coach. Which many people would say that’s too expensive right? Basically it’s all what you’re used to huh?!

Ashley on

The blue ones are cute, but too expensive. I think the flats are ugly, but maybe that’s just because I am too short to wear them!! :o)

ucokaty on

make that banana republic lol! no bana

jenny on

Tell me about it! One of my girl’s pays like $2,000 and lives in a shoebox! When I’m done with NYC I’m moving where you are UCOKATY and settling down!

ucokaty on

haha sounds good and we’ll go get sexy heels for around $75 or less together!!!! geez for $2000 bucks a month here you can have a nice new 3000 sq foot home!

Jesse on

for great shoes, go to, I have bought 3 pairs of shoes off this website…free overnight shipping… huge variety, I bought a pair of $50 boots for winter, and a pair of $80 flats for summer, and some printed keds just for going to class in. They have good sales, and high quality products in a range of prices. My roomate has been telling all our sorority sisters about it. LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

andy scheider on

So this is so ridiculous. Obviously its easy to find cheap shoes for small sizes. Check out the sugar shoes here.. and others for under 20.00. You can go to payless and get really cheap shoes. These are cool shoes and i have a big foot. You cant find them anywhere, let alone cheap! I just bought two steve maddens in size 12. good luck finding them in 12 anywhere else. and they were fifty something and fourty something. i live in the midwest.. its pretty cheap here but these are great prices and shoes i cant get. i guess you guys dont get it. size 6.. no problem. get cheap shoes on ebay if you want. but big sizes.. check out endless selection of size 12.. hello.. show me the cheap shoes! nada period…

Babs on

LOL, I completely agree, except I have the opposite problem. My feet are tiny, tiny and it’s horrible finding shoes that are cute and affordable! The ones I find in my size are either for kids or plain ugly.

Lynne Smalley on

I have the most gorgeous and the warmest PAJAR boots from Barefoot Tess + ballet flats that I get compliments on every time I wear them. The ordering was straightforward and the prices were far better than I found in stores. It is such an easy way to shop & to stay ahead of the fashion curve!

joan on

these shoes are really great! wonderful, cute, and
elegant :)

ASA Girl on

If anyone is looking for really cute, really right now shoes I have 2 words for you… Charlotte Russe!

lauren on

these gold shoes are fab. but they are currently at TJ MAXX for $20 cause i just bought them there!!

Lauren on

The polka-dot shoes are Soooooooo cute!! I want them…. Do they come in red? I love, love, love them!!

Brittney on

Those ssohes arent cute at all. No i would never buy those shoes. OR would i let anyone but them for me.

RC on

Cheap shoes never pay off in the long run especially if you have big feet. Payless shoes hurt my feet and fall apart. And you should spend more on the shoes you wear everyday. Try Sofft shoes at Dreamshoes They are comfortable and cute and come in size 13.
