Cheap Designer Shoes

Cheap Designer Shoes-Leafy Souls Vegan Blog Post

The number of shoe designers is increasing every year. And it's a good thing too. Designs like the hurrah shoes and others in our collection are proud pieces created by talented people.

Getting a new pair of shoes is a special occasion. Your feet need good, quality shoes to walk in every day. This will help prevent any deformities or foot pain. Unfortunately, the best ones usually require a lot of cash. Knowing which other designers, apart from the luxury brands, that sell high-quality shoes will help you get the right pair.  

From fancy flats to classic courts and statement sandals, we round up our favorite affordable designer shoes as selected by Style Caster. These designers are perfect any shape or form, tall, big orpetite.


Dolce Vita

Founded in Manhattan's Lower East Side in 2001, Dolce Vita was started by Nick Lucio and Van Lamprou. Designed for New Yorkers, the shoes provide women with the coolness and confidence that they deserve with eye-catching styles. The brand quickly became a popular choice in the streets of fashionistas and a must-have in their wardrobes.

Dolce Vita is inspired by music, art and street style from all parts of the world. They bring a perfect balance between a cool NY chic and the laid-back Californian girl. The shoe designers add a new style every season keeping them trendy, innovative and exciting for every loyal customer.  


Matisse

Also founded in 2001, LA-based Matisse built up a loyal family of customers thanks to their affordable, good quality footwear.  Matisse and its fashion-forward shoes are internationally popular. Casual, formal, boots, heels, flats or sandals, Matisse has you covered for every occasion.

Targeting that inner nature in you, Matisse footwear is composed of colors, tropical flowers, and mosaic patterns, Quality craftsmanship, and design is part of their culture while still being affordable. And they make it a point to ensure this quality is always met throughout the process of manufacturing the shoe.


Gucci

If $300 is the max you can spend on shoes, then Gucci has a few selections to choose from ranging from around $100 - $300. That’s not bad for a luxury brand shoe that will last you seasons.

Gucci, originally from Florence, worked at a hotel and loved seeing the stylish suitcases and clothing that the high-end guests wore into the building. Once he returned home to the city of artisans, Gucci opened his first store in Florence and started his own accessories line: shoes, handbags, and wallets.

The loafers (which you can buy for around $100) were the original trademark shoe that showcased the craftsmanship of stitching and patterns that Gucci used to make his pieces. A pair of Gucci loafers are in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.


Jeffrey Campbell

Jeffrey Campbell’s shoes are notorious for being out-there and runway suitable shoes. Their extravagance and over the top tackiness is an artistic take on the everyday shoe. Although they look uncomfortable to walk in, most women say that they can walk in them all day and their feet are taken care of.

Campbell’s designs have a lot of creativity behind them, and a lot of color. They are inventive, fun and risky. If you want to be different from the rest, Jeffery Campbell’s shoes will do the trick and the average price for a pair is $150.

His online store has a huge collection of shoes perfect for any day should you decide to show off your wild side. With thousands of styles to choose from and every piece being a work of art, it will seem more like you are going through an exhibition at a gallery than window surfing for shoes.

The designer is known for staying out of the limelight. He prefers not to be photographed, interviewed or attend fashion shows. He would rather keep a low profile, enjoy his work the way he likes and let the girls on the streets showcase his portfolio.


Sales & Outlets

Designers shoes can also be bought at a good discount if you keep your eyes open. There are some great outlets that have bought from the brands' old collection still in stock. The fashion house is happy to sell and meet its yearly targets or even break through them. And the outlet store gets a great discount for a large batch of shoes to sell at a good profit at the stores.

Chances are that you will find your dream shoes during one of the sales or outlets. You may not be “what’s in style” for that season seeing as you will buy what wasn’t sold from the previous one, but if you choose a timeless piece - you can wear it any day. If you choose something a little bit out there, you can always bring the shoes out again when the moment is right.

Online Vegan Stores in EU

A true sign of sustainability becoming a more than a momentary trend is when big online platforms like Net-a-Porter start to offer a dedicated yet small ”organic” selection. The trend almost turns into a movement when smaller multi-brand online stores pop up, which offer curated selections from sustainable brands.
