These are my cute new flats (they actually have the tiniest kitten heel). I wanted something that was a little updated from my only other black “dressy” shoes — a pair of pumps I bought at Ann Taylor in … uh … that would be … 1995? Maybe?
I bought these at DSW for $0.01.
Their “compare at cost” was about $70. Then at DSW they were marked at $49.99.
I found them on a clearance rack, labeled with the purple (I think it was purple? aw, who cares?) “80% off” tag. That took them to about $10.
And the coup de grace: I was carrying a $10 “award” for spending $250 at DSW. (It takes us a long time to spend $250 on shoes, but the rewards program — even though they recently cut it back — is a great reason to check there when Mr. Cheap or I need shoes.)
My total after taxes and discounts: Just one cent.
And they are comfortable, AND they have a non-skid sole in the forefoot. Sweet!
And of course, I didn’t take a plastic bag.
