Good footwear shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. Especially not a leg because then you aren’t able to fully enjoy a pair of shoes. The math isn’t that hard, buying discounted gear means that you can get even more stuff for the same amount of money. Footwear is a great place to get stuff on sale because there are so many different kinds of shoes. You can reap the benefits by getting a pair of sandals and a pair of boots, leaving you perfectly prepared for whatever may come.
You need to have reliable and durable footwear. I went out to lunch the other day with my grandma and it started raining, my shoes were starting to come apart at the soles and water immediately began to soak into my socks. Nobody likes having wet socks, it feels like the cold on your feet just moves further and further up your legs until your whole body feels achy and uncomfortable. These prices give you an opportunity to make sure that you never have to feel that icky wet sock feeling because you were smart enough to stock up on awesome footwear while it was on clearance.
