If you have recently noticed wear and tear to the shoes of a friend or relative and perhaps even commented on it to the person in question, it's the right time of year for you to buy new shoes for them. Here are some retailers where the best deals on shoes are in particularly plentiful stock.

Aldo shoes

The Canadian retailer Aldo has footwear shops around the United States and has recently unveiled its winter collection of boots for both men and women.

Another reason why this is so convenient is that, whether you buy any of these boots in an Aldo store or through the company's website, Aldo is offering discounts of 30% to 50% off all of its styles. However, this promotion will expire at the end of November 21, 2018, so you need to act quickly.

Shoes.com

This online seller of footwear is running a range of holiday deals where the savings on shoes can reach as high as 60%. Each listing in this promotion clearly indicates the saving as a percentage, and a sophisticated search feature enables you to easily sort through the options.

Payless shoes

The punchy-looking Payless website is fun and easy to browse. It certainly helps that Payless specializes in selling shoes and doesn't broaden out the options to other types of clothing.

When we visited, we noticed a wide array of discounts and coupons available for use on the Payless website. The site even has a dedicated ‘Sale & Clearance’ section – and if you online-purchase items that you then no longer want, you can freely return them to any bricks-and-mortar Payless store.

DSW shoes

Whether you are interested in buying boots, sneakers or loafers for a special man or sandals, heels or flats for a lovely lady, you can pick up any of these from DSW. We have, of course, listed only a few examples from the complete range of footwear stocked by the company.
Whatever your choice from this footwear may be, when you buy a couple of shoes through the DSW website, you can slash 20% from the overall price of them by using the online code YOUSLEIGH.

Nordstrom shoes

The website of upscale department chain Nordstrom has made it especially easy for you to select just the right pair of shoes for gifting to that special someone this holiday season.

The company has dedicated a whole section of its website to ‘holiday gifts’. So, whether you are considering spending on some waterproof boots for an outdoorsy type, some slippers for a comfort seeker or cool-looking sneakers destined for a trendsetter's feet, you're covered.

Zappos shoes

It's hard not to be impressed by the service at Zappos. The online clothing retailer's stock covers many brands of shoe, including UGG, Nike, Adidas and New Balance. Furthermore, all of the available shoes can be shipped for free.

However, you could be especially tempted by the choice of boots – and that wouldn't be too surprising in a season when the snow can keep accumulating. Ankle boots, winter boots, lace-up boots and rain boots are all represented in the stock listed on the company's website.

Skechers shoes

As you peruse the website of shoe retailer Skechers, you could gasp in awe at the varied listings, including those of casual footwear, work-friendly shoes and even sandals for both gentlemen and ladies. Kids are also catered for with the shoe selection available.

However, perhaps one of the biggest advantages of shopping at Skechers is being able to take advantage of Skechers Elite. This membership scheme allows you to earn points with your purchases and benefit from savings and contests that are only available to members.
