    Default I hate shoe shopping, can anyone suggest sites

    I hate, hate, hate shoe shopping.

    I usually wear my bass weejuns to work and have a pair of black sandals for spring time.

    I need some new shoes..dressy, but nothing over 3/4 heel. I've looked at 6pm, but hard to find what I need in a 7 on that site. I've got a classy red dress that I 'm going to use for an outdoor concert coming up and I need nice red flats to go with it.

    Anyone suggest a good site for discounted shoe shopping.

    I love Zappos. Awesome customer service! Free shipping both ways and they almost always upgrade me to free overnight delivery.

    OMG yes! One of my favorite subjects, because I feel like I won a lottery when I discovered sierratradingpost.com.

    Make sure you also search google for additional discount coupons. They have great shoes, great brands, and also great outerwear for the barn at amazing prices.

    I have found some really great Canadian and European brands that are wonderful quality and actually made in Canada/Europe/USA. I end up paying $50-$100 a pair instead of $200-$300.

    My latest find are these boots, gorgeous and with discounts came to $78

    Ara is a Portuguese brand and makes beautiful shoes.

    Nordstrom now has free shipping, and like Zappos their return policy is great (which is wonderful as I have very weird feet and half the shoes I try don't fit...) They also have a lot of off sizes (for example, just got a pair of shoes in a size 4 that neither Zappos or the retailer's own site even carried!)

    If you aren't super hard to fit or know what brands fits you well, eBay is pretty darn good. I love Ecco shoes, so I have an automated search set up. Whenever a pair of new Eccos in my size (HUGE) is listed, I get an email and can decide if I want to bid. If being able to make returns is foremost, Zappos is as good as advertised and they have a huge selection.

    If you don't like shoe shopping. . I'd recomend going to nordstroms if you can. find one pair you like, the sales person will come back with 3 choices. or just tell them your searching for red flats and they will do all the heavy lifting.

    I also would recomend Cole Hann online, they usually have pretty good sales.

    I like Zappos. Sierra Trading Post is fun, but you will be spammed into hell when you give them your email and there is NO WAY to stop them.

    I do almost all my shoe shopping at Bass Outlets. They're the only place that has size 5 1/2.

    You might try DSW, which is a discount store/site.
