The Review Rundown:
I really love a one stop shop when shopping around. You need some shoes? Here are all the shoes, all kinds, and all styles – all in one place. In an ideal world, we would be able to carve out a little time to slowly browse up and down each and every aisle at DSW. It really is a bit therapeutic. There’s plenty of fun to be had searching for what you need, and accidentally stumbling across something that you didn’t even know you needed. Sure I wasn’t exactly looking for another pair of sneakers, I’m here for boots, but while I’m here? Don’t mind if I do!
But for most of us, that’s not reality. We barely have time to browse around for ourselves, so now that we realize our sneakers have actual holes in them, it’s probably time to snag a new pair. Since most of us aren’t heading into the stores these days, to the internet we go! Since they really cover all of the categories from casual to dress, this is a great starting point when you’re on the hunt. I’m a big fan of black and metallic, so these black Nike’s with the rose gold swoosh (and hundreds of positive reviews) are at the top of my list. The best part? They are well under $100.
One of the only good things to come out of our recent tough times, is the joy and beauty of curbside pickup. This is everything and I hope it never goes away. The convenience here is two-fold. Not only do I not have to get out of the car, and can stay in my daytime loungewear (you know, before I transition to my evening loungewear), I find that I don’t overspend. I truly just go to get what I needed – no distractions and no impulse buys. So you can can add a cool pair of Dr. Martens Chelsea boots to your cart, and pick them up in 2 hours (as long as they are in stock, of course).
If more than one person in your house is in desperate need of new shoes – because when it rains it pours, it’s easy to cover a lot of ground here. They have shoes for men, women and kids at all different price points. Having so many options available can make it easier to find something that you need, at a price within your budget. You can even sort their sale page by discounts of up to 20%, all the way up to over 50%. And yes there are still items available for over 50% off!
If you’ve ever wanted to a VIP of sorts, here’s your chance. You simply just sign up. Perks include free shipping on all purchases, and will score 1 point for every $1 you spend, and get a $5 reward for every $100 you spend (or 100 points you earn). You’ll also get $5 off for your birthday, to spend during your birthday month (if you so choose to share that info with them). The most important piece in our opinion, is that they accept donations of gently worn shoes. It’s always a good idea to help when you can. And as an added bonus you’ll get 50 points for every week you donate.

The Real Deal With Coupons + Promo Codes:
They don’t give promo codes to other sites, so if you’re frustrated by the fact that the ones you come across never seem to work, we feel your pain. We’ve also scoured the internet for what seems like an eternity and always come up short here. So the answer here is no, you probably won’t have any luck searching around for online coupons.
However, they do put coupon codes on their site – on occasion. You may find codes to enter at the “checkout” and those can sometimes be as high as 60% off select styles within a department so to speak. So it’s definitely worth clicking on over and taking a peek. In the meantime, a great option is to subscribe to the email list, and/or join their VIP program. It’s a great way to be kept in the loop and earn points to your own personal sale on future purchases. And there’s always the possibility of scoring big on the sale they’re currently running.
