Shoes can get expensive, especially when you want to buy designer brands. Wholesale shoes are perfect for someone who does not want to compromise style, but also does not want to spend a fortune on shoes.

Brand Name Outlet Stores

Outlets tend to receive overstock from retail stores and sell the shoes at discounted prices. Many shoe stores may have this option. Call your favorite brand and speak to customer service about outlets and locations. On many shoe brand websites, you have the option of searching for stores as well as outlets.

Designer Shoe Warehouses

Unlike outlets, warehouses sell different brand names and not just one particular kind. Popular shoe warehouse, DSW, sells discounted and wholesale name-brand footwear from sneakers to high heels. Famous Brand Shoes and Nordstrom Rack are other popular warehouse shoe stores.

Wholesale Online Shoe Stores/ Knockoff Designer Shoes

Designer brands of shoes like Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo are famous for being fabulous, but outrageously expensive. A pair, in 2010, can go for about $1,000. Online shoe stores like Go Jane and AMI Club Wear sell knockoff designer shoes, which cost between $10 to $40. Most are around $20 as of 2010.
