Last Day for Reebok Tee Deal

Everyone loves BOGO, and if you're devoting the upcoming warm weather months to outdoor athletic activities, you may especially love this buy one, get one deal from Reebok. When you purchase any pair of ZigTech training sneakers, you'll get 50% off any Reebok t-shirts including performance tops, tanks and polos. On top of that, you'll also receive Free Shipping and Free Returns on your entire order! Just use code ZIG50 when it's time to check out with sneakers and your chosen short-sleeved tee in your cart. Although I can't speak to the performance of these shoes, I do love the look of the ZigTech sneakers with their shock-absorbent swirl. Style Bard faves are 'Pulse' in this fun and feminine Black/Pink.

20% Off Robeez Shoes

Spring is (once again) in the air in NYC. Thank goodness, because I couldn't tolerate this recent dip back into the 30s. This also means that a slew of shoe sales are just around the corner, including this great deal from Robeez: 20% off orders of at least $50. Robeez are those physician-approved orthopedic and safe slip-on shoes for infant and toddlers. And that's all well and good, but the part I love most is how completely adorable they are. For instance, check out these 'Papillon' sandals with butterflies on the toe. They're less than $30 and you know any young girl wouldn't want to take them off her feet. If your little girl or boy still needs their first Easter shoes, you know my informed vote goes to Robeez. To save 20% off your next order, just use code SPRING20.

Last Day to Save 25% Off Banana Republic Shoes

Banana Republic has extended their Weekend Sale by 24 hours! That means you have all of today to save 25% off your entire order of regularly priced merchandise when you use code WEEKEND25. Naturally, that includes fabulous shoes such as these 'Scotty' flats, which Banana Republic is calling the 'essential flat' and I would absolutely have to agree! With a supple soft leather exterior and cap toe, these definitely encapsulate the Audrey Hepburn vibe that brought ballerina flats back in style. They come in Tan, Black or Indigo. And with your discount, they're under $65!

Last Day for Free Shipping on Macy's Shoes

Today's the last day to receive Free Shipping on any pair of shoes from Macy's. To qualify, all you have to do is total $99 in your shopping cart (piece of cake) and use code HOTLIST. Besides which, this same "Hot List" promotion includes a slew of additional markdowns, which I believe also expire tonight. All together, that means that these retro-yet-modern 'Parisa' platform sandals by Lucky are now only $69.99, marked down from $99--and those are just the savings you get before using your Free Shipping code. And there are plenty of other steals and savings you can glean if you shop before this offer ends tonight!

This is how my note started last week: Time to break out your favorite flip-flops and sandals! This week all I have to say is BRRRRR! I'll write more about it later, but today I tried a new vegan cafe and visited a trunk show, and yet somehow the best part of my day might be cuddling up under my blankets! Now that's cold. Stay warm, everyone. ~SB

*Deal of the Week* Neiman Marcus Shoe To-Do Event

Neiman Marcus is giving you the opportunity to contribute to charity--but just as importantly, they're giving you a perfect excuse to shop for shoes! Today and tomorrow only, when you buy any two pairs of shoes from Neiman Marcus, $50 will be contributed to Success Worldwide, an organization which benefits disadvantaged women. All you need to do is place your two pairs in your shopping cart and apply code SHOE2DO. For starters, Style Bard recommends these "Glitter Pumps" by Christian Louboutin. They come in both "Fuxia" and "Nude" and if you really can't choose between them, why not spring for one of each? I certainly wish I could afford to, because these gorgeous shoes are just too hardcore for me not to crave. This offer is available both in stores and online.

Save on Boots at 6PM - One Day Sale!

Today only, select men's and women's boots are up to 65% off their original price at 6PM! This seems like a broad sweep of merchandise to cut back on boots before the weather gets too warm, but I always say you should shop against the season to get the best deals. And speaking of best deals, how about these sassy Sperry Top-Sider 'Sausalita' rain boots, for 46% off? The best thing about them is that you can keep wearing them through rainy days in Spring and Summer. Oh, and that spitfire patent Red. Of course, this deal won't last long, so be sure you check out all of the brands and styles marked down before prices are marked up once more!

Up to 20% Off Old Navy Shoes

These 'Ruffled Peep-Toe Platform Booties' only make me think of one thing: yellow nail polish. I can't say why, precisely, but there's something about the tiny flash of toe at the tip that would make me want to wear a bright, cheeky color to celebrate Spring. These and other flats, wedges and sandals from Old Navy can now be yours for either 15% or 20% off. All you have to do is spend $75 or $100, accordingly. Then use code ONSAVEBIG at checkout to see your discount automatically apply.

Shop for shoes at Hot Topic and you can have your order shipped for free! From on-trend seasonal sandals to boots with some real kick, there's a wide assortment of footwear available for men and women. Style Bard faves are these 'Rainbow Snake Sandals' which seem like they'd add a splash of personality to almost any casual outfit. They're not only colorful, but the addition of texture makes them especially appealing to the eye. Although I have to say, I wouldn't go with silver nail polish like this model, I think I'd be too tempted to wear something bold, like blue or green! Or would that be too much? What do you think?

Win Free Shoes Competition from GINA

It's pretty well-known that Style Bard is a big fan of the glam looks from GINA. Sadly, these shoes fall well out of my typical shoe-buying price range, but I always look forward to the opportunity to win free shoes through ongoing contests. Typically, a shoe will be presented and you simply have to use clues or search the site to identify the style name. Easy, right? And for this simply participation, you're automatically entered to win free shoes from GINA. The shoes shown here are part of the current contest; even though I could be selfish and keep mum to better my own chances, you guys know I would never do that to you! I truly hope that if I don't win, at least it's one of my readers (because I know you all love shoes as much as I). And of course, if you do win, I would love to hear about it!

*Deal of the Week* Save Big on Sneakers at 6PM

This weekend, 6PM is featuring its athletic shoe brands by offering sale prices on sneakers and active footwear from Nike, Adidas, Puma, New Balance, Reebok and ASICS. The breakdown shows that sale pricing can be as much as 60%, 50%, 60%, 55%, 85% and 55% off for each brand, respectively. My own lifestyle shows very little need for fancy work-out gear (probably to my own detriment) and I hate the look of bulky, practical sneakers anyway. However, on top of the expected range of shoes, most of these brands have also begun to sport cuter looks for casual wear. For example, these 'Dapper' flats by Puma are perfectly adorable and would work nicely with jeans and a cute everyday top; they come in Brown/Pink or Grey/Teal (shown here). There are also boots and hundreds of low and hi-top options. Take a look at the different lines to see what meets your lifestyle needs, and you stand to save big when you shop this weekend, Saturday and Sunday.

Shoe Hunt!

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, here's a letter from a reader looking for green wedding shoes (how fun!):

I need your help!

I'm looking for some green flats. Something totally adorable to wear at my wedding. Something more fun than a plain ballet flat, with a fun flower, embellishment, bow or something... Any advice on where to look? I have 7 months, so there isn't a rush, maybe the spring will bring what I need?

We're going to have green flowers, so something along those lines, but definitely something bright enough to pop (though lighter than a St. Patrick's Day green).

Any advice would be much appreciated! Love your blog (and shoes!).


You all know what that means; it's time for another Shoe Hunt! As always, the Style Bard is happy to oblige. I know the ins and outs of shoe shopping websites, such as where to find the best shoe sales and free shipping. So if you ever need help locating special or hard-to-find shoes, don't hesitate to shoot me an e-mail and I'll try my very best.

First of all, one caveat. Liz, I hope that you mean to wear these flats at your reception and not for walking down the aisle or in photographs! Naturally, you want to be comfortable on what is not only the most memorable but often the longest day of a woman's life. But choosing shoes with a little oomph will change how you stand up straight as you stride to meet your groom, as well as your posture in photographs. Just some general, flexible tips for a little head's up! But assuming that you'll be wearing these at the appropriate times, here are a few examples of what you're looking for (from lowest to highest price). I hope you find what you need!

Kerry by Kate Spade @ 6PM A simple, understated flat lets everyone's attention stay on the bride, her dress and her radiant smile. Trimmed in white to match the gown, this option may make for the perfect green wedding shoe. Plus, you get your bow! $44.00

Acrobat by BC Footwear @ Piperlime These are a simple flat with a slightly pointed toe to peek out from under your gown. They don't offer any embellishments, but the pleating on the upper does add visual interest. $50.00

Chime by Kate Spade @ Zappos You wanted flowers? You've got flowers! Two pom-poms adore the toes on these comfy, slip-on shoes. Perfect for changing out of your formal shoes after the reception and relaxing without resorting to flip-flops! $60.00

Monica by Via Spiga @ 6PM The ornamentation on these shoes is reminiscent of flowers and offers a bit of bling for aesthetic appeal. They're lightly padded and perforated for breathability while you're on your feet for long hours, celebrating and dancing the night away! $61.60

Pause by Ciao Bella @ Piperlime These are definitely bright, fun and unique flats that tie into your green flower theme perfectly. $79.00

Flipper by Apepazza @ Zappos These shoes are certainly not for everyone, but I find them delightful and unique. They're definitely bright and flashy enough to stand on their own under a wedding gown, and I promise they'll get your guests talking. $109.00

Hilla by Robert Clergerie @ 6PM I'm not sure if slip-ons with a slight kitten heel meet the bill, nor do I know if you want to show your toes. But! If these details do appeal to you, I just love these understated yet entirely eye-catching shoes. $145.60

Kelly Green Leather Covered Stud Flats by Balenciaga @ Bluefly These flats are hardly dressy, but they're anything but boring! I certainly like the shade and the fact that they're not too formal to wear again with cute day and evening outfits. $436.00

Moss Sequined Bow Detail Flats by Giuseppe Zanotti @ Bluefly Did someone call for a green, flat wedding shoe? These are the ideal look that comes to mind. They offer you both a bow and sparkling sequins to make your shoes stand out. The white will tie into your gown and the shimmery moss color will pick up green from all of your themed decor. $440.00

And here are three additional, similar options from Zappos. They all have ruffles, bows or flowers adorning various shades of green flats, all at very affordable price points:

Sweet Caroline by Chinese Laundry $38.95

Shimmy by Blowfish $45.90

Florale by Steve Madden $79.90

*Deal of the Week* Farewell to Winter Sale at Shopbop

You know Style Bard loves loves loves making this announcement: Shopbop has added new merchandise to its sales selection, which means that drool-worthy designer shoes that were full-priced last week may now be marked down up to 70%! This Farewell to Winter Sale includes shoes by designers such as Jeffrey Campbell, Tory Burch, Dolce Vita, Sergio Rossi and L.A.M.B. Style Bard favorites are these Report Signature Shoes 'Copper Three Band Sandals' -- I can hardly say why, but I think it's the unique color, called Cognac. And of course that sexy steel stiletto pinprick heel. Marked down by 50% these are even surprisingly affordable, which only makes them more dangerous in my eyes. The only thing that stands between these shoes and perfection are their velcro clasps; just imagine what a mood-killer that would be in a striptease. "Just one moment. Rrrrrzzzzhhhhct. Zzzzchht."
