Last Day for Free Shipping on Vivre Shoes

Today's the last day you can shop for chic summer shoes and have your cart that totals over $50 shipped to you absolutely free! Vivre offers an array of sparkly, metallic, fun sandals and flats that'll make it easy to meet your mark, like these unique, convertible sandals with laces you can slide out and switch up according to your outfit and mood (extra laces sold separately). The "Sophia" by Phillis Morgan is a high-end shoe, and probably more than you'd usually pay for thong sandals, but they also take into consideration what features you'd need to get the most bang for your buck.

50% Off Moxsie Shoes

This deal is kind of insane; I feel weird typing it, that's how absurd it is. Shop Moxsie's indie shoe styles and save 50% off your order. Your whole order. For more than a month! Just use code BLOWOUT50. Yes, that's really it. The only tiny caveat here is that all sales are final, so you can't make exchanges or returns. Still! Some things are worth the risk (or revving up that eBay account...) and one of them is half off your new shoes while supporting small business owners. Style Bard is already eyeing these mini-wedge "Delphine" gold sandals by Matt Bernson, which seem like they would just go with every outfit I ever wear all summer. Plus - ZIPPERS!

New Shoe Markdowns at Shopbop!

Ash Lyn Buckle Wedge Sandals

The first day of new markdowns at Shopbop is always so exciting! There's plenty of product to choose from and always in the most recent styles. Otherwise, you wind up swooning for some sale shoes only to find that it's practically sold out, except for in, like, size 5.5 and 13. Today is that magical day, so while supplies last you may want to scoot on over to Shopbop.com and check out the 30%, 50% and 70% off shoes - including these "Lyn" wedges from Ash that I'm currently justifying in my own head, even though I hardly ever wear brown shoes - sometimes there's just too much attraction to apply logic that way, though! And Ash is one of my favorite brands... Plus there's always Free Shipping and Free Returns from Shopbop.

Last Day for Free Shipping at Saks

Want those expensive designer shoes shipped to you ASAP without paying an extra cent? Today's the last day Saks Fifth Avenue is willing to comply when your order totals over $150 and you enter code SHIPMAY. What's even better about this deal is the fact that there's a simultaneous sale going on right now, where many of your favorites may already be marked down by 40% for a limited time. Other shoes, on the other hand, may be well worth full price - like these Valentino "Peep-Toe Lace Couture D'Orsay Pumps" that almost look too pretty to wear and hearken all of the lace rage started by Princess Kate. Check out all of the options and deals so you can save on the cost and shipping for a major markdown in total if you shop before midnight tonight.

Last Day for Free Bombshell Tanktop at Victoria's Secret

Sure, this post title might be a little misleading since it's not about shoes. But wait, yes it is! Because if you spend at least $60 on shoes -- like these comfy-looking suede "Ankle-Wrap Straw Wedges" at the perfect price point of $68 -- then you automatically get a "Bombshell" tank from Victoria's Secret...free! The tanktop's retail value is $32, regardless of how little there is to it, so whether you're looking for something to sleep in through the summer or just want to wear this out (wherever you'd wear this...to the mall?) you're all set when you shop for new shoes.

*Shoes in Review* May 15-21

Saturday Note from Style Bard
I have family coming to NYC to visit, and we're gonna do all that dumb tourist-y stuff I haven't done since I was a child. Although there's a lot of cost and organization involved to pull this off, my biggest concern is what shoes I'm gonna wear. Because seriously, I don't own sneakers. I'd usually go for flats but can I really wear dress flats all weekend and wander without killing my feet?? Flip-flops?? This might become a very interesting pickle. I'll keep you updated.

*Deal of the Week* Jos. A. Bank Shoes for Dad

WAS: $145
NOW: $99

Get a head start on a gift for dad by shopping the admittedly limited selection of sale shoes at Jos. A. Bank. Years ago, when SBS was a fledgling blog, this brand used to go on sale all the time and I like their stuff, so I'd try to write about it when possible. Then they started putting their shoes on sale less and less. So now, when I happen to catch wind of marked down shoes, I try to post about it -- like now! And what better timing to flaunt these marked-down designer men's shoes than just before Father's Day? Style Bard faves of the eight-piece category are these casual, dapper "Chris" Oxfords by Cole Haan. Plus, all orders over $195 ship for free.

Options for guys and girls (both, of course) include these "All-Star Black Glitter Low Tops" that used to be $49.99! These Chucks are pretty sweet, I have to admit, even if I hate sneakers.

40% Off Piperlime - Save On Your Faves

Nine West Altan Sandals

Piperlime is now hosting the Save On Your Faves Event, where a select assortment of accessories and shoes are marked down by 40%! Plus, of course, enjoy Free Shipping on your order. For example, these Nine West "Altan" slingback sandals are now $59.99, down from an original $89! A little less literal than some of the actual studded clogs out there, these bring the chic '70s twist we're all craving right now without too much retro heft. They come in three color options, but it's the double buckles that really seal the deal for me -- you know how I love my hardware.

Reduced Shipping from 6PM

Although we're used to spending $6.95 on flat-rate shipping from 6pm.com, the popular discount shoe website is now offering the same ground shipping offer for only $3.95. This reduced rate is in place through the end of the month. Now, not for nothing, but it only seems smart to suddenly show them how much we like this lower price by doing a lot of shopping there and showing them that a lower shipping rate will drive sales. Of course, I do always lean toward any excuse to order new shoes, like these sharp silver metallic "Lowveld" by Gabriella Rocha, already marked down 40% to $41.99 while supplies last.

There's still 48 hours left to take advantage of the one-week sale from Reebok that allows women to shop for 40% off! That's right; you choose the shoes and accessories and just apply code SHOP40 to take nearly half off your entire cart. If you've been using the excuse that you're just waiting for the weather to warm up to get started on your workout routine, you can take this as extra motivation to get started. Another inspiration is how jazzed up you'll be to wear these bright, bold blue 'EasyTone Flash' sneakers (which come in a handful of other colors as well) for just $99.99 before your discount. Plus, look for Free Shipping on orders over $79 (though some exclusions do apply).

Free Shipping on Rachel Roy Shoes

Until the end of this month, you'll receive Free Shipping when you shop for new shoes from Rachel Roy! All you need to do is spend at least $100; which, let's face it, is basically any one pair of shoes from this designer. Though the only pair currently sold out on the site is extremely ugly, which worries me for the impression it gives of Rachel Roy clientele, at least it means that there are still plenty of cute and beautiful shoes in full stock for the rest of us to buy, like these "Olwyn" platform sandals I just love. You know they take some work to wear, but would meanwhile look extremely effortless with almost any outfit.

*Deal of the Week* Zappos for Mother's Day

I find it a little odd that a website that made its name on shoes offers a complete Mother's Day Guide including only slippers. Is it really that hard to buy your mother regular shoes? I guess it can be difficult with sizing, but not really when Zappos has Free Returns. For a style that every mom would probably love, Style Bard recommends these casual, comfortable, quality Hush Puppies 'Bueno' flats in Black Leather, Silver Leather Metallic or Tan Metallic Nubuck (shown); they're selling for a mid-range price of $69. And why not just get her a gift certificate to Zappos? Despite overnight shipping, this late in the game a gift certificate is actually the ideal option for a forgetful son or daughter. Then she can treat herself to whatever new shoes she wants! For a quick click-through to the gift certificate page, use the button below.
