Look sharp! Fancy British footwear is coming to NYC by way of the Nicholas Kirkwood sample sale, which returns to C21 Edition later this month. And happily, it's six months ahead of schedule: The last two events both occurred during the month of April.
There will, of course, be tons of gorgeous architectural heels and embellished flats, but one question remains: Will we see the return of under-$200 shoes? Last spring, everything had been marked down by 70 percent, meaning New Helmut heels were $238, velvet pumps were $204, snakeskin heels were $509, and leather ankle booties were $268.
Meanwhile, on the more affordable end of the sale, flat sandals were $149, wedges were $168, and loafers were $174. No word on exact prices just yet, but see the Dealfeed below for hours and location.
