Where to buy cheap but decent looking shoes
For comfortable shoes…. I suggest Rivers. Rivers is a clothing and shoe shop all over Australia. Cheap about $30- $50 and very comfy. They have really good boots. http://www.rivers.com.au
They have an online shop where you can buy shoes and comfortable clothes. They often do have weekly specials on shoes and other things.
For work and special occasions. I suggest Zoe Wittner. But don’t go to the normal stores. Instead visit DFO or wait until their end of season sales where everything is drastically reduced. http://www.wittner.com.au/shoes/shoes-sale.html. Most of the shoes on special costs from $39-$100.
I’d also visit zu shoes as they have cute shoes. They have a direct factory outlet in Richmond where everything is 50-75% off the retail price. I have bought a pair of heels for $59 once and I wore them time and time again.
Diana Ferrari is another shoe brand that I’d go for. Here they have factory outlet in Moonee Ponds where you can buy the shoes for like $50-$70.
Most of the shoes purchased in Aus are all in European sizes. Hence a size 5= to a European size 36. If you are not sure of the shoe sizing here best to go to the shop and ask the shop assistant to help you with sizing. that is what they are there for.
This should help you too http://www.wittner.com.au/help/size_guide/
