I have never been an expensive shoe person. I usually get mine on sale at Kohl’s or at Payless. I found some on clearance at Sears for $8 like 6 months ago, but I’m dieing to find some blue shoes. I ordered a couple pairs from Endless, so I’ll have poll to decide when they arrive.)
But in the mean time, I was wondering how much everyone else was spending. Are you a big, expensive shoe collector? Do you usually go budget, but splurged for the wedding? Any other shoe habits you’d like to share?

I found my shoes for about $25. The salesperson gave me her store discount, so I got them for less than $20.

I wanted purple shoes and I order mine from Payless. They are dyeables and with a 20% promotion, I got them for under $40 with tax and shipping. I just got them the other day and they are so pretty!!!!!
No way was I going to spend a ton of money on shoes. My money has so many other places to go!

I absolutely LOVE shoes, but usually don’t spend more than $100 or so on a pair.
For my wedding I was thinking I wanted a pair of Manolos or something equivalent that I’d not only wear for my wedding but for years after.
In my first outing looking for wedding dresses, I didn’t find my dress, but I found my shoes.
They were $600 Oscar de la Renta shoes. We got a 10% discount by opening a Sak’s card and while I couldn’t believe I was going to have shoes that cost that much, my mom loved them and insisted that they were the shoes (and bought them for me).
I cannot wait to wear them at my wedding and for years after.

@KatNYC2011: I’m incredibly jealous. I’ve been trying to search for good quality shoes for less than $150 and its impossible.. I keep pulling up pictures of $500+ shoes to see what Kingy says.. he is not impressed haha

I found a pair of Ninas that I LOVE at Marshalls for $29.99 I think. I was hoping to stay under $50 but really thought I’d end up at about $75 so I felt it was a win!

@kingytobe: A lot of Menburs are around that price and I’ve heard they are really comfy.
My shoes just kind of came to me. They were the only pair left not only in the bridal salon but in all of Sak’s in NYC. They were my size and they fit perfectly.

Admittedly, I am a bit of a shoe freak. When I was younger, I was totally into however many shoes I could get my hands on, but as I’ve gotten older, I find myself investing more money into pricier items (shoes, bags, and clothes). I guess I’m more quality conscious these days, but I will never turn down a great pair from Payless or Target. My shoe closet ranges from $5 to $900, the latter being my wedding shoes, a pair of blue suede Louboutins. It was my splurge

I also went slightly “nuts” to buy my dream wedding shoes for $280. I started out with a budget of $100, and then one day these Kate Spades were posted online and my brain started churning for where I could fork out another $180. 🙂 At least they’re not the $775 Manolos I wanted to begin with and knew I couldn’t afford (I love the Kate Spades more!).

Mine were $65. I love shoes, but usually only by from Target, Payless or Nine West Outlet for most things. I would’ve spent more for wedding shoes if I had found what I wanted… but I’m good with my $65 spend on them – I’ll be able to wear them after the wedding as well.

I paid about $170 for my ceremony shoes (BM Randalls) and am looking for something a bit cheaper (under $100) for my reception. I’m also a bit of a shoe-a-holic but try to stay under $100 normally.. unless it’s boots.

A ridonkulous amount. I splurged on a pair of Manolos….yes, I love them, but I kind of wish that a) I had gotten less expensive shoes, or b) I had gotten the same shoes in a more rewearable color (I have them in royal blue)..

@EleanorRigby: Dang, I thought I would be the winner @ $15
