Confessions of a shoe seller - It's Summer sale time

Confessions of a shoe seller - It's Summer sale time

It's sale time now for us - we only have two sales a year so they are always pretty spectacular and our customers love them nearly as much as we love making space for all the new stock as everything gets sold!

These are my favourite sale tips that I always share at this time of year;

  • Remember that we still have a few months of nice weather to go (hopefully) so if you spot a good sandal or shoe in the sales snap it up, you will get to wear it now and then it can be packed away ready for next summer too.
  • Only buy things that fit - leather will ‘soften’ around your feet and shape to fit you if it is snug around your foot but a shoe will never grow any longer so it is not a bargain if your toes are curled up or falling over the end! 
  • Take advantage of reductions on accessories such as handbags and scarves - these are often not as ‘seasonal’ as other items and will be suitable for any time of year.
  • Only buy things you love … this is the most important one.  Do you love it should come first, closely followed by will you wear it and does it fit?

Finale Shoes Blog Autumn/Winter Photoshoot

Photo shoot for the Autumn/Winter collections

The shoes and boots always look lovely in the shop but it’s nice to have images of them on feet and in different locations too, this helps people imagine how they will fit into their wardrobes and lifestyles. So every season we do a photo shoot, this is one of these things that sounds very glamorous but is actually something we spend ages planning and is pretty hard work but very worth it when you get the shots at the end!
