With Bergdorf Goodman's seasonal markdown period winding down, Madison Avenue Spy took a look at what's left in the department store—and for how much. She says that shoe lovers, especially devotees of the Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin sample sales, will find prices here similar to those events: A red-soled PVC-detailed pump going for $350 (down from $695), for example.
However, it looks like Manolo prices are nearly double the price compared to the its boutique sale (BBs for $195—$225), let alone its sample sale ($100 for the same style). Regardless, if you're hankering for a designer heel with a lower price tag and without the hassle of lines and crowds, now is probably the time to go.
