Since the advent of online shopping, women everywhere have been looking for the best deals on shoes and clothing to fill up their closet. In the past few years, the availability of cheap shoes (in price, not quality) has been better than ever. Online retailers such as JustFab and 6pm are two examples of destinations that offer quality products at reasonable prices, but there are plenty more where those came from. The goal of this post is to help you navigate the waters, as there are so many options out there.
First off, you must be aware that no two articles of clothing or pairs of shoes are equal. When searching for discount shoes and clothes, you are bound to strike out on occassion and purchase something that either does not fit right, is uncomfortable or simply looks bad in person. Don’t fret… This is all part of the game! You will likely get more wins than losses, especially if you follow some of the advice I am going to give you here.
The first tip (and really one of the only things you need to know) is to only buy shoes that have a large number of positive reviews from that particular retailer. Most of the big online shoe and clothing retailers will have a huge database of inventory, but at the same time they have millions of customers who are purchasing their products and leaving reviews. Most times if a customer is unhappy with a product they’re going to write a a review about it… So I can’t stress it enough that you want to read all of these reviews. If a product does not have reviews or only has one or two, you might want to stay away from it. Unless you really love the design and are willing to be a guinea pig, that is!
The next tip is regarding buying shoes online only… Keep to sites that have reviews on whether the shoe is true to size or not. Most reputable online shoe companies will have this as a ranking factor in their shoe. If most customers are saying the shoe fits too big, then buy it a size big. Likewise if the shoe is too small. This will prevent you from running into sizing issues as not all shoes fit the same.
Follow these tips and you are sure to have an enjoyable and frugal experience when shopping for cheap clothes and shoes online!
