Forever 21 Shoes



1. Velveteen Stiletto Heel $24.80
2. Suedette Stiletto Ankle Bootie $29.80
3. Suedette Heel Bootie $27.80
4. Rosette Ankle Strap Heels $22.80
5. Retro Oxfords $24.80
6. Studded Ankle Wrap Bootie $32.80

I can't help but notice that Forever 21 has recently stepped it up in their shoe department.  Much like their clothing and accessories, they've always displayed cute shoes at affordable prices.  However, I've always been one to believe that cheap shoes and horrible pain go hand in hand.  But suddenly I'm seeing girls wearing these and pronouncing that they're comfortable (as charmingly demonstrated by Carrie, Anna Jane, and Alicia).  I'm now changing my tune and planning on scoring a great pair of shoes for less than $30.  Here are a few of my favorites.  Do you have any shoes from Forever 21?

F21 has definitely stepped it up lately!

Erica said...

Lately I've been more and more impressed with their selection. I may have to go buy a pair ASAP!

oooh i lurve that first one.

Oh, My Darling said...

I noticed a significant increase in the shoe section when at F21 this weekend! Love that third pair.

Mandy said...

I'm like you - I think Forever 21 has cute shoes, but any pairs I've bought have been terribly uncomfortable. If I found another pair I really liked, for their prices, I would give them another try.

Gabriel said...

Well, I'm all in favor of inexpensive shoes! Keep this post in mind when we eventually expand your closet space!

I have found their flats to be comfortable, affordable and cute (after breaking them in a bit). I've gotten pairs there for like 8 bucks! But the heels I've tried on in the store seemed like they would be painful after a while..

I couldn't agree more about cheap shoes. I'm keen on buying a pair or two from this store however, I remember the flats I bought from
F21 and how much they hurt my feet.

I do still love this store though for other stuff, the other day I bought a pair of jeans for $11.50. Cheea=)

im wearing a pair of forever wedges at the office right now! they are ridiculously comfy

Anna Jane said...

mine are surprisingly comfortable - something I didn't expect! they really do have some great shoes, lately!

Marcie said...

I too am worried about things such as blisters. I get them all the time with cheap shoes. Let me know if you buy any. I am curious to see your opinion. That said, these are all very cute. I love the first pair.

Thanks for this post, Valerie. I've yet to purchase their shoes (almost purchased some gray boots, but didn't end up)... for the same reason (afraid that they'd by painful). I'm on a spending hiatus, well for the most part, but I will keep F21 in mind when I need shoes from now on. And I look forward to seeing any that you end up buying (in your outfit posts) as well!

I have noticed the same thing! I love number 2 you are showing and the booties alicia is wearing!

Oh, hello number two! Come to mama!!!

MJ said...

I haven't tried their shoes, but I totally would!!

Val I usually run away from a cheap shoe (actually don't even get near it in the first place), but I was looking for a platform bootie and they were all over $250 and, well, we discussed the wallet restriction.

I don't even shop at Forever 21 because I am so far past 21 I can barely remember what it was...but I googled something and the link came up to the shoes and then it was over.

Now they're not the MOST comfortable shoes, but they don't kill me either (and I'm a big baby). With a little padding inside they are totally bearable for a night out and are really cute!!

I love the ones you picked the first two especially.
