Army & Navy Shoe Sale 2010

Comments 5 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The annual Army & Navy Shoe Sale happens this Wednesday April 21st at 8:00am sharp.

Rejected Shoes *sigh*This event which usually sees a line up forming outside before the crack of dawn features designer shoes at rock-bottom prices.

The sale’s been around for over 50 years and in 2008 they sold close to 80,000 pairs of shoes. For 2010, Army & Navy is stocked up with over 100,000 pairs including labels such as Steve Madden, Christian Audigier, Diesel, and Marc Fisher.

Last year I interviewed the Junior Buyer for the Shoe Department at Army & Navy who offered the following pieces of advice:

  • Wear flip flops for ease of trying on pair after pair
  • Grab a basket or the complimentary A&N shopping bag, fill it with all the shoes you like, and grab yourself an empty corner to try your shoes on
  • For those shoppers who aren’t able to make it right at 8:00 am, don’t worry we stock up the shelves all day, and especially for the lunch and after work rush
  • I’ll be live-tweeting from the downtown location (36 West Cordova Street) Wednesday morning, from around 7:00am.

      Darn it! Is it just the one day? If so, then I’ve missed it. Will the leftover shoes still be on sale today, Thursday? Please let me know, if you would.
      Thank you
