We stopped by a preview of the United Nude sample sale yesterday to scan the selections and stock up for spring. The sale is boasting up to 85% off shoes and consists of all sizes and styles, through the fall 2013 collection. Prices range from $25 up to $195.
Most of the actual samples are in the main area, and they all appeared to be priced under $70. There's one bag style for $50. If you're not a sample size (girls 38 through 40, guys 42 through 43), skip this area and head to the left to the stacks and stacks of shoes.
Women's takes up the majority of the sale and sizes range from 35 to 42. There's everything from strappy summer sandals to tall leather boots. We spotted some colorful Möbius Mids ($85), Abstracts ($85) and versatile studded flats ($75). We also spied the Eamz pumps ($100) in calf hair and leather, neon Lo Res pumps ($80), and metallic Mosaic Mids ($90).
Guys sizes are 40-46, and some standout styles include beachy elastic slip-ons ($75), desert boots ($100) in multiple color ways, and metallic hi-tops ($125).
Try ons are welcome, and there are two large mirrors in the sale area and two large benches. All sales are final, and cash and credit is accepted. They will not be restocking, so go now or forever hold your peace.
