Boot Barn - 5% Off Entire Order

Although I can tell through the screen that you kind of want these (I kind of do, too; they light up!), they're actually kid's boots by Roper Footwear. But don't worry, there's a vast selection of (regrettably non-light-up!) boots for men and women at Boot Barn. Hence, the name, right? Well now you can get 5% off your entire order through Christmas Day; just use code XMAS101. It may be too late to get your gifts under the tree on time, but that doesn't mean your loved ones will love the present any less in the following days. Or heck, just splurge a little for yourself with that Christmas bonus; you've earned it and it's only going to get colder on your poor feet in the coming months.

Last Day for Guaranteed Christmas Delivery from 6PM

Today's the last day you can place your order at 6PM and receive guaranteed delivery by Christmas Day. And you can even have free delivery if you order up to $100 of merchandise. You can start toward that sum with a modest $38.50 on these Tsubo 'Acrea' slingbacks; I just love the appealing shape to them. They were originally $110, but were already marked down by 65%. That leaves you with one or two more gifts to buy to reach your Free Shipping total and still have it by Dec. 25.

ASOS 50% Off Clearance + Free Shipping Worldwide

I'm not quite sure how much longer you've got on this deal since I don't see an exact date, but suffice it to say you should get shopping while the shopping's good! That is, until some undetermined time, you can take up to 50% off the shoes in the ASOS clearance section, like these seriously striking BLACK BIJOU booties in suede. It's a little extra, unexpected bling for NYE or holiday parties--plus they're majorly marked down! And, you can receive Free Shipping--anywhere in the whole, wide world.

*Deal of the Week* Slipper Socks from Totes Isotoner

Okay, so socks-as-gifts might be the butt (or foot?) of a lot of jokes. Just like getting ties, or getting...well, coal. But seriously, no one will be complaining when they receive a pair of snuggly, warm slipper socks from Totes Isotoner. And right now, they're on sale from $5/pair to $3.25/pair. Or you can buy a men's or women's 3-pack at a reduced rate. And yes, they have slipper socks for kids, too. So basically, if you're stuck mulling over a gift (or stocking stuffer! how ironic!) you can check these out for anyone (or everyone) left on your list. Plus, you can order as late as Wednesday, Dec. 22, and still have them shipping on time for Xmas.

10% Off All 6PM Shoes - One Day Only

6PM always offers loads of great savings on shoes, on top of constantly adding extra daily and weekly discounts. But for the most part, those reductions only affect certain styles, brands or individual pairs of shoes. Not today! Today only, you pick the shoe--or any number of shoes--and take 10% off the total order immediately with code 6PMCJDEC132010. Style Bard craves some ankle-high wedge boots that won't look boring under a pair of jeans, so I'd consider 10% off these 'Radd' boots by Boutique 9. I just wish they came in other colors! And not suede, because every time I wear suede shoes I get paranoid about the rain/snow (you have no idea how obsessively I can refresh (So I guess I love the style, I'm just stepping on my own blue suede shoes??)

PacSun's One Day Sale

The more you shop, the more you save. Today only, it's 15% off $50, 20% off $100 and 25% off $150. Plus, receive Free Shipping! May I recommend these 'Phoebe' boots by Vans? They look like the ideal waterproof, weatherproof, winter boot. With a cozy, quilted top and padded insole, you'll be quite comfortable in them as well. They're a comparatively high-priced item for this site, which is why I suggest them during this one-day markdown. Plus they're bulky, so the Free Shipping is a must. Last but not least, these boots are an online exclusive, so you won't find them on any of your mall sprees this season--so get 'em now while the online sale is hot.

But at least it's a pretty good one! Here's the deal: $30 off your order of $150 at Bluefly, plus Free Shipping. No codes necessary; your shopping cart is just so smart it already knows what to do when you put in the correct amount of merchandise. Or just the correct single item if you're ogling something like these devious leopard-print 'Anya' boots by Jimmy Choo. Yes, that's real calf-hair, and yes it's Italian.

Last Day for Macy's Friends and Family Sale

Did you have time this weekend to head to the mall or website to check out the sale at Macy's? I was busy visiting Long Island for the first time--and although I did buy a kicky new dress and shrug (NYE party?) I did not actually get to Macy's. But that's okay, we've all got one more day to take 25% off our new shoes. The Friends and Family sale (code: MACYSFRIEND) runs through midnight, allowing you to save on styles like these stunning new Enzo Angiolini 'Kylin' pumps--perfect for every part in shimmery and patent Gold or Silver. Oh, and did I mention Free Shipping?

Because Cyber Monday was so successful, Shiekh Shoes decided to extend its fabulous holiday offer for a few more weeks. That means you can still save $20 on $100 by using code HOLIDAY20. You can save a solid Jackson on shoes like these 'Office' pumps in eye-catching Red--though they do come in two other, more subdued colors. Plus, your purchases come with automatic Free Shipping. But one caveat about that--Shiekh's shipping isn't as instantaneous as other vendors, so they recommend buying by Dec. 12 if you expect to get your shoes by Christmas.

*Deal of the Week* Frye Boots on Sale

I have an obsession with Frye boots. I've wanted a pair for many, many years--but not just any pair, the perfect pair that will remain intact and timeless throughout the decades and ultimately be stolen by my nieces or someone else who covets them for their vintage, classic appeal. So when I hear about a 6PM sale where Frye shoes are marked down by up to 70%, I'm very excited. If you are, too, you should know it's just for this weekend. Aside from boots, you can save big on styles like these 'Marcy Piecework' flats. They were originally $118, but they're currently only $41.80. Right now, you can also rake advantage of Free Shipping. Check out the sale by using the button below.

Robeez are engineered to help infants and toddlers walk with confidence--while wearing shoes they can really enjoy, like these 'Butterfly' slip-ons based on the Eric Carle illustrated children's book, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" (and yes, the gift set does come with the book). They're also safe, comfortable and easy to put on kids' feet. Check out the complete selection, you'll be awwwwwwwing in no time and trying to think of the little one in your family who still needs a gift this holiday season.

Free Ground Shipping on Hot Topic Shoes

I've noticed that most of the incoming December deals last all month to allow for broader holiday shopping, but it makes it very hard to prioritize posts for you! (Wahwah, I know, woe is me.) Having one of the earlier expiration dates of all the sales I've collected so far, the Hot Topic offer gives you two weeks from today to receive Free Shipping. All you have to do is spend at least $50 on your new shoes; no codes necessary. Recent arrivals include these extremely fun 'Digiskull' boots by Iron Fist, which weigh in at $79.99--one of the priciest shoes on the whole site, but it's an online exclusive and it definitely pushes you over the Free Shipping mark. Plus, you know you want a pair of shoes like this just for those special occasions where you want to get creative, if but only once or twice per year. Or maybe I'm just projecting... I only wish they were a little more highbrow and the skulls lined up in front.

20% Off Christabelle's Closet for Thanksgiving

Some deals start sooner than others, and you can start your holiday savings early at Christabelle's Closet (though the deal runs straight through Cyber Monday). Christabelle's Closet is a consignment website that features discounted designer shoes. Although you have to check back frequently for new wares, they may have an outstanding deal in your size. For example, these out-of-season Prada sandals were marked down to only $90, but because it's now winter, they're an additional 30% off. What size are these savings?

*Deal of the Week* Sale on Insoles - First Time Ever

Women's Premium

The Walking Company is now offering a brand new deal on their comfort insoles. When you buy any one pair, the next is 25% off. No codes or any other special finagling is necessary, just add two items to your cart and see the second/lesser one marked down. All sorts of styles and shapes are available to fit any foot's support needs. I have insoles plugged permanently into a few pairs of my favorite shoes, and it's a blessing each and every time I slip them on. If you're a fan of wearing ridiculously uncomfortable shoes like me for the sake of beauty, you might want to at least give your gorgeous, masochistic self a small break with comfort insoles.
