Shoes That Sell

Every day shoes are sent from the warehouse to the stores and every day new shoes arrive at the warehouse from all over the world, womens shoes, mens shoes childrens and baby shoes.

High Heels have been flying off the shelves this year along with top designer names such as Armani, Prada, Dior, Ted Baker and Gucci.

Crocs since they first came onto the market have had their ups and downs but they keep regular sales all year round.

We all like to relax at home in a nice pair of comfy carpet slippers. there has been a surprising rise in the sales of clogs this year and a massive rise in shoes that are aimed at helping you to lose weight or to help you get fit.

Canvas pumps in various colors have had a massive boost in sales and sneakers such as Converse, Adidas, Nike, New balance, puma, sketchers and Lacoste are a consistant top selling shoe.

Open toed sandals for relaxing on the beach or at home also fly off the shelves including Havianas and Birkinstock.

I don't own a pair of crocs (yet), but the picture of them reminds me of the LL Bean waterproof boots (can't remember exactly what they were called) I used to wear. These are hopefully more comfy and sounds like they are.
