It’s been a bit over a week since department stores officially started their first markdown. Some boutiques, particularly, shoe stores have been holding off on markdowns. Starting Monday almost every major shoe brand will offer customers a discount on summer soles. Below are some highlights:
Looking for something to tie down your attention? Look no further than the scrappy heels, sandals and flats from Aquazzura. The sale started Sunday and features a discount of 30% off. This is the first sale season at the boutique. It’s hard to say if there will be another markdown. Included in the markdown are the sandals with the turquoise stars (which happen to be 50% off on Net-a-Porter), pom-pom sandals and a variety of classic Hero Ballerina flats.
One of the first stores to go on sale is always Charlotte Olympia. The discount is currently 50% off but many of the most desirable styles are already sold out. Sizing is spotty but everyone who works in the boutique is always extraordinarily helpful and, if possible, will locate your size.

Shhh…Christian Louboutin’s private sale officially kicks off Monday. The discount is 40% on a variety of summer styles. Some of the most popular shoes this season have been nude pumps with hearts, denim pumps and rainbow python heels.

The private sale at Gianvito Rossi starts Monday. This is the first sale cycle, as the boutique just opened. The discount is 30% and we strongly suggest you go for the cork sandals (discounted 50% right here), sexy d’orses and classic suede in a variety of colors.
The sale started publicly last week but there is still a large inventory available. The discount is 30% but the store usually takes a second markdown to 50% before July. It’s hard to imagine who is buying those armored high-top sneakers but they continue to add them to the collection. Highlights from this season’s collection include, clog-like mules (already discounted 50% here), classic embellished sandals and beaded suede espadrilles.
