Black Friday has become the perhaps premier sales period for quality shoes, when a lot of players offer quite good discounts on a lot of products. Here’s an overview of some of them.
A Fine Pair of Shoes
British online store A Fine Pair of Shoes offers 25% off on the entire range. They have shoes from, among others, Alfred Sargent, Carlos Santos, Berwick, Sanders, Tricker’s and NPS. Use the discount code BLACKFRIDAY2018.
Italian Barbanera is a brand that combines a lot of attitude with traditional craftsmanship. Their models are often personal and quite different. During Black Friday they offer 30% of everything on the site, so if you’ve eyed any model from them earlier, now’s the time to pull the trigger.
At Skolyx (which I work at) we rarely do sales, but with two new brands (TLB and Skolyx private label) added to the line-up this year some room need to be made. Therefore several stock models from Yanko and a bunch of samples from both Yanko and TLB are discounted with between 30-40%, so good bargaining opportunities.
German Heinrich Dinkelacker makes hand welted shoes made in Hungary, mainly according to the Austrian-Hungarian tradition, but some more modern models as well. They offer up to 40% off on selected models.
The Swedish store Skoaktiebolaget has put a really big selection on the Black Friday table, with shoes from all their brands, such as Carlos Santos, Löf & Tung, Enzo Bonafé and John Lobb Paris. The discount rate varies, usually around 30%.
One of the major online shops for classic shoes in Europe, British Pediwear, they also punch on a real deal this round. 20% on (almost) full range, and free shipping on orders over £ 150. Here you will find Loake, Carmina, Heschung, Carlos Santos and Grenson.
Sons of Henrey
Even though the brand Sons of Henrey has just launched, they do a Black Friday campaign, with 20% off all shoes, and 30% if you buy two pairs or more, then the code BLACKFRIDAY should be used. The shoes are Goodyear welted from Spain.
Shipton & Heneage
Shipton & Heneage is a bit of an institution in the British shoe industry, which has always been there and managed the transition to the digital age quite well. They sell shoes under their own brand, which in most cases are manufactured by different factories in Northampton. They have a 15% discount on everything, plus up to 60% on a number of selected models.
This is, of course, only a small selection of all the ongoing scores, please refer to more good ones in the comments field below.
