I indulge regularly in my vices: beer, cheese and anything containing pumpkin. But no addiction is even close to my obsession with shoes. There should be a club for this, right? Oh, there is. Much like the beer of the month and cheese of the month clubs (that I write in to my Christmas list every year), shoes are the new monthly membership you need to include in your budget. These are all items that I will spend my money on anyways, so why not join in – with like-minded peeps – for great deals and exclusive access to your wants and needs. Here are the 7 best online shoe clubs...
Price: $29.95 per month for two pairs, with free shipping eshoeclub.com
The new kid on the block, eShoeClub, has some work to do to keep in line with its competitors. So they offer TWO pairs for a regular monthly fee – that is a ten-dollar savings, compared to similar clubs. With a great selection of boots, sandals and heels, you won’t be caught empty… footed.
2. Shoe Dazzle
Price: $39.95 per month, free shipping shoedazzle.com
You may have heard of Kim Kardashian? Well, she heads up (or is it, butts in?) the celebrity voice for Shoe Dazzle. Your selection of shoes every month is based on an independent style questionnaire that you take during the sign-up process. Once presented with your five pairs, there is no obligation to purchase – only a requirement to deny the shoes by the 5th of each month. What I like best is there are also a few suggestions that didn’t quite make your top 5, but are available for purchase under the same deal.
Price: $39.95 per month, free shipping justfab.com
In what appears to be quite similar to Kardashian’s special shoe club, style experts Katherine Power and Hillary Kerr are at the ready with the promise of heels and handbags you covet for your closet. Similarly, there is no obligation to buy from JustFab – and exchanges are hassle-free. The ladies might be right – their closet is pretty spectacular.
