As many of you know, it’s been a slow week for sample sales. That said, we decided to check the Shoe-Inn warehouse sale at Penn Pavilion across from Madison Square Garden on 7th Avenue. It ends tomorrow, January 12th.
Over the years, the Shoe-inn has held this sale in this area either here or a few blocks uptown on Broadway. Past sales offered some high-end designer footwear. However, the past few seasons, including this one, the items have been primarily mid-range brands.
There was a real mix of what shoppers would find from flats, heels, sandals, sneakers, ankle booties and boots. They even had a pair of Ivanka Trump heels for $39.99.
We took pictures of some of the labels and styles that caught our eye. For us, there really wasn’t a lot that we liked. Just a couple of sandals and espadrilles.
Shoes/sneakers/sandals are in the front of the large space. Boots are in the back. Everything is organized by size which ranges from 5-11.
There were plenty of size 7s-81/2s for shoes and plenty of 7s and 10s for boots. But they did have selections for each size.
- Prices for shoes $19.99-$69.99
- Boots from $34.99-$229.99 (Aquatalia) and Stuart Weitzman $249.99
- Sneakers $24.99-$59.99
- Converse $29.99
- Espadrilles $29.99-$49.99
- Rubber flip-flops $9.99-$29.99
This morning, there really wasn’t much of a crowd. You’ll need to check in your coat before you can go into the sale. Today’s discount was buy one pair of shoes and get the second one free. That didn’t include boots. Perhaps, they’ll offer further reductions tomorrow.
