Satisfy Your Shoe Crush at the Shoe Inn Sample Sale

Shoe-Inn Sample Sale Review by ShopDrop NYC

By: Lindsey Castin

The Shoe Inn sample sale was a true heaven for shoe lovers. There were hundreds of shoe options organized by size (ranging from size 5 to size 10). They had leather boots, sandals, heels, rain boots, and anything you could possibly be looking for! On top of that, they were all from well-known brands (Calvin Klein, Frye, Rebecca Minkoff, Michael Kors, Vince, etc). The shoes were all priced based on designer but were mostly in the $30-$80 range. All of the shoes (excluding boots) were buy one get one free. How could you not find something you love? 100% worth checking out!

Our Fav – Final Markdowns at Sample Sales – SuperDry

By Lindsey Castin

Streetwear has been making its way into the fashion world because of its low quantities and high popularity. Superdry is another one of those players with recognizable and signature logos. The Superdry sample sale had everything: neon orange snow pants (originally $200 now $40), tan overalls (originally $80 now $12), sweatshirts with the Superdry logo (originally ranging from $75-$100 now $20), a huge abundance of t-shirt (originally $20 now $9.60 etc. Everything at the sale was an additional 20% off and if you bought 4 or more items it was an additional 40% off. They had a variety of sizes and items of clothing from every season–light jackets, heavy jackets, swimwear and snow gear. This is the perfect sample sale to go to if you love the look of streetwear for insanely affordable prices!

About The Manolo Markdown & Why There Aren’t Too Many Sample Sales in January

Manolo Blahnik 60% Markdown NY ShopDrop app

As 2018 begins, we can’t help but notice that the number of sample sales per week dropped from over 100 to a mere 10-20. True, this is the week of the Holiday itself, perhaps the slowest week of the year. None the less, we’d like to go over the reasons that sample sale season is slower between January and February.

  1. It is cold – people want to stay indoors and shop online – not in physical brick and mortar stores, where they could freeze their *** off waiting in line.
  2. Regular stores have their biggest markdowns during this time of year (think Manolo Blahnik – that is why we covered their 60% markdown here) so sample sales only offer an additional 20%-30% off in that case.
  3. It’s post gifting season. Most New Yorkers are exhausted after shopping for the Holiday season: all the equipment, gifts and festive prep leaves shoppers exhausted – both financially and emotionally.
  4. Jan-March is known as ‘the dead season’ for physical retail across the board!

    That is why we decided to cover the Manolo Blahnik 60% markdown taking place in their headquarters in midtown Manhattan. Half the store was on sale, the other half was still selling at full price. Shoes and boots ranges from $205 to $1,000, when retail prices ranged between $600 and $1,600. Items included Summer, Fall and Winter collections with sandals, velvet heels, boots and booties. Styles included both classic and holiday. As always, images & prices are included below. Enjoy.
