Out & About: PETITE FEET SALE in Toronto – Fall Trends & Designer Shoes in Every Size!

I have a weakness for beauty products (as many of you know) but I also have one for SHOES!! What girl doesn’t right? Right now, at the International Centre in Toronto (Airport Road), you can walk away with high end/designer brand footwear at bargain prices. This year I spotted a few Fall trends at the sale (i.e. combat boots, embellished booties) and was really impressed with the selection so I thought I’d share the sale details and my top picks with you.

I have been going to the Petite Feet Sale for the last 8 years and have never missed a single sale! It happens at least twice a year during the Thanksgiving & Easter long weekends here in Canada. If you are in the local area, I suggest you check it out.  The sale started today and runs until Monday October 14th. It features designer and boutique brands each priced significantly less than in retail stores (up to 80% off!). Every year, there are over 30,000 shoes to choose from as well as a small selection of designer handbags. I want to point out that unlike other “warehouse sales”, this sale is not selling old merchandise and many of the shoes are from current/recent seasons of designer shoe collections. After each sale, I spot some of my fab finds at Town Shoes or Browns for close to double what I paid!

This sale started out years ago as the “Petite Feet” sale since most sample sizes were a size 6. Today, most shoe styles are available in sizes 5-11, however if you are lucky enough to wear a size 6, you will find 50% more selection.  

Here are some of the brands you can expect to find at the Designer Shoe Sale:

This time, I went to the sale with two specific shoes in mind. I wanted to find a pair of sneaker wedges (yes – I finally caved) and I needed to replace an older pair of short booties that had seen one too many winters here in Canada. Take a look at what I chose below, and let me know what you think.

Fergalicious by Fergie “Lucid” Ankle Booties

Rustic and chic, these booties are a no-brainer for Fall. I spotted these booties right away and snatched them up without even thinking. Faux distressed leather, a cute toe cap and strap detailing give these booties a slightly western look. These are going to look great with a denim or leather jacket this Fall.

These sneakers are trendy and stylish. Complete with adjustable Velcro straps and a rubber sole, they are extremely comfortable. I love the discreet snake-stamped leather strap and the fact that these have a hidden-wedge. 

I plan on going back to the sale this weekend, mainly to see if I can find my size/try on any of the heels/booties pictured below. What do you think of the styles below?
