End-of-season sales are in full swing at department stores and boutiques right now, with stores like Tibi and Barneys now offering up to 60% off its spring and summer and merchandise. To that end, we popped into Bergdorf Goodman yesterday afternoon and headed straight to the shoe department, where more than two rooms are filled with shoes that are up to 50% off.
But the problem we frequently run into at Bergdorf? Encountering a ton of gorgeous, high-end shoes whose heel height just too impractical for everyday. So when we were browsing, we looked specifically for walkable styles: flats, sneakers, espadrilles, and low chunky block heels.
Click through the gallery above to see the ten best styles we found at the department store, all of which were available in multiple sizes. Prices aren't marked and nearly all of these are no longer available on Bergdorf's website, so make it your mission to go to Fifth Avenue and 58th Street this week and scope these out in person.
