Matt Bernson's archival sale is back with tons of shoes for $100 or under. Popular styles from the past and current collections are available, and the sale is full of summer staples.
The Weekender and Jack sandals come in several bright colors and are both only $50. Platform shoes, like the Charlie and Bisbee, are $75, as are the Biarritz and Gladiator sandals. The rafia Saint Honore heeled sandals, which are still priced at $196 on the brand's website, are also only $75 at the sale.
Booties for $100 make up most of the shoes. We spotted the mint Marlow bootie and Southwest-inspired Jardin Taos booties. The popular Waverly ballet flats, worn by celebs like Amanda Seyfried, are $60 and available in over 25 styles—including leather, suede and cap toe. The Mercer D'orsay flats are also $60, and we really liked the chevron-print leather version that's still full price online for $176.
In the front of the cashiers, you'll find deals on Fresco turkish cotton bath ($35) and beach towels ($75) and a variety of scented body oils by Jiva-Apoha. The large 8 oz. bottles that normally retail for over $100 are only $15, and the smaller 2 oz bottles are just $5.
Jewelry, including studs and dangling earrings displayed in a small suitcase, are all $10. And sorry guys, we didn't see anything for men this time around.
With most shoes going for $60 and $75, it's no wonder shoppers were checking out with three or more boxes of shoes during the friends and family event last night. Don't worry, though: by the looks of all the stacks of shoe boxes, the sale seems very well stocked and we were told that there are even more sizes available in the back.
Don't be afraid to ask for your size, either. The friendly staff is on-hand to help retrieve them for you, and there are seats and mirrors in the back of the room where you can try on. The sale runs through Sunday at 427 W. 14th Street between Ninth and Tenth Aves. Cash and credit cards are accepted. See the dealfeed below for more info.—Hsini
