The strength of this year’s NAS was the footwear assortment, and this is reflected in my client’s purchases and my own. The anniversary offerings in designer salon shoes continues to be disappointing, perhaps because the brands prefer to keep their items exclusive. But there was fabulous footwear across more affordable price points, with ample variety across silhouette, colour, lifestyle and weather conditions. There are lots of comfortable and practical options that look great too. I’m pleased to see an assortment of brown, cream and red shoes as opposed to the usual black and grey. Extended sizes and widths are offered, and so are manageable heel heights.

Here’s the collection page if you would like to see the items alongside my descriptions.

Also check out my introduction to the series, and the items I brought home from the sale. Be sure to also browse wardrobe basics like underwear, socks, loungewear, sleepwear, or workout wear if you like to use the sale to replenish those types of items at this time of year. Also lots of fun stuff in homeware. Good hunting and happy NAS!
