Sale Alert: Amazon Prime Day Deals (Shoes)

As I mentioned in my last post, I am super excited about Amazon Prime Day, which ends tomorrow July 18 at 3:00am Eastern Time. If you haven't already, check out the best non-fashion deals I found. You do have to be an Amazon Prime member to shop this sale, but you could always sign up for a free 30-day trial (or if you're a student, a free 6-month trial) and cancel it later. Anyway I was browsing through the fashion section and found some shoe deals that were too good not to share. For all of these deals, you can take an additional 30% off the listed price at checkout. By the way, since Amazon uses dynamic pricing, the exact price varies by color, size, and availability. So I can't predict exactly how much something might cost for everyone, and prices may change quickly, but I'll provide them for my own shoe size including the 30% discount. For reference, I usually wear size 6, and my feet are normal to slightly wide.

Cole Haan Women's TALI BOW BALLET Shoe, Black Leather, 6.5 B US

1. Cole Haan Tali Bow Ballet Flat - Originally $170. Black in size 6.5 is only $65.20 (all prices are after the additional 30% off)! I own these and wear them all the time. They're pretty comfortable for flats and look a little bit like the Ferragamo Varina. I went half a size up, because I don't like when the elastic sides are too tight. By the way, this is the best price I have ever seen for this shoe. For reference, I paid about $90 last year. I ordered a replacement pair for myself.

2. Cole Haan Juliana 75mm Dress Pump - Originally $148. Save an additional 30% off, possibly more depending on your size. I don't wear heels myself, but I know that the Juliana is a very classic well-reviewed dress pump, so if you're looking for a sleek comfortable heel, this is the one for you.

My next picks are all from Frye. While I don't own any pairs of shoes from them myself, I have heard great things about their boots (in terms of quality and leather), and these prices are certainly very tempting! I'm definitely thinking about picking up a pair for myself.

3. Frye Melissa Tab Tall Riding Boot - Originally $428. Black extended calf in size 6 is $74.15.

4. Frye Melissa Button Back-Zip Boot - Originally $368. Dark brown antique soft full grain in size 6 is $132.30.

5. Frye Melissa Button 2 Riding Boot - Originally $378. Wine in size 6.5 is $114.12.

6. Frye Melissa Chelsea Boot - Originally $298. Cognac in size 6 is $89.21.

7. Frye Melissa Stud Back Zip Riding Boot - Originally $378. Wine in size 6 is $64.62.

8. Frye Melissa Seam Tall Boot - Originally $398. Slate in size 6.5 is $114.77.

9. Frye Ruth Woven Ankle Gladiator Sandal - Originally $258. Yellow in size 6 is $49.92.

  1. Somehow I feel this original price and saving/sales price is very American. American people care how much they “save” so much. This is not the case in many other countries. Maybe American consumers are just brainwashed- you have to think about “saving”. To me, when you really like it, you probably won’t care saving as much. Also thinking of saving/sales also takes a lot of time. Just my honest observation. I just hope we are all conscious about our purchase. We buy something because we need it, we will use it often and we won’t waste it.

    1. That's an excellent point. Showing you how much you "save" is one of those strategies retailers use to get customers to buy NOW. They've done psychology experiments around that, and it just works. I'm not really familiar with non-American retailers, so I can't comment on that, but we could all stand to be a little more mindful about our purchases.

  2. I have lived in China, the US and Europe. I have definitely learned the shopping culture and changed my own shopping habit. Still trying to be more mindful! :)

    1. I'm still trying to learn that lesson myself! One day at a time :)
