The Loeffler Randall sample sale began today at 9am at 525 Broadway in Soho, and we swung by last night for the friends and family portion to scope it out. As usual, the sale is packed with shoes and a selection of bags in sizes ranging from 5 to 11.
Prices aren't rock bottom (the discount is up to 60% off), but the selection is great and includes a lot of shoes that are currently full price on the website. Basic flats and sandals can be had for $100, and more elaborate heels, stacked sandals, and booties are $175.
Shoes ranged from sandals (like the Gilda sporty sandal; the Elke buckle sandal; the Addie ankle strap wedge; and the Henry stacked heel sandal) to booties (like the Yara buckle bootie and the Ione open toe bootie).
There are also plenty of heels, like the Lillit kitten heel sandal; the Charlotte d'orsay pump; and the Tamsin classic mid-heel pump. For flats, we spotted the Mara cap-toe espadrille; the Milla scallop flat in several colors; the Emma d'orsay flat; and the Lita mignon sandal.
Sizing was pretty even across the board, though it's worth noting that the size 8 through 10 area is pretty hard to get to, because that's where the try-on bench is.
We've included more specifics on pricing in the gallery above The sale runs until 8pm tonight and from 9am to 8pm, and we're told they'll be replenishing stock throughout. Based off of yesterday's preview, we think it's safe to expect a pretty long line.
