The Best Places to Buy Shoes Online, Period
When it comes to shopping on the internet, Who What Wear editors are serious experts. We’ve spent our time combing the best retailers and we’re always on the lookout for new sources to find amazing pieces. And shoes happen to collectively be one of our favourite things to shop for on the internet. After all, you can really find anything you’re looking for, whether it’s the drop of an exciting new collaboration or a one-of-a-kind vintage find.
To break down the very best places to buy shoes online, I asked Who What Wear editors to share their favourite spots. Ahead you’ll find a handy guide of where they’re buying shoes to add to their coveted collections. From a new online destination that specialises in buzzy new shoe designers to the best places to score those iconic Gucci heels you passed up on a few years ago, these are the best spots to order shoes on the internet.
"This relatively new e-commerce site has every luxury brand that matters in footwear. I also love their 'new talents' section to discover emerging brands."
"I'm a sucker for vintage designer heels (Gucci to play favorites), I always have the best luck finding cool retro heels and mules on the real real. They have a ton of product on their site so the key to sifting through is to search by specific designer and set the search to only your size. Promise you'll find something good, like these."
"I love heading to W Concept for cool new shoe brands no one's heard of. Currently lusting after Salondeju."
"I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I like to do my shoe shopping secondhand from sites like Vestiaire Collective. I have expensive taste so when I can find something from the likes of Chanel or Celine at a more affordable price point, I can't help myself."
"Mango is my go-to for affordable shoes that look way pricier than they are. The brand always manages to hit on key trends in really cool ways, like these minimalist sandals with a fun contrasting heel."
I'm a bit of a Need Supply super fan, and part of the reason is because they stock so many cool, but still slightly under-the-radar, brands. The shoe section alone can tell you that, with lines like Neous, By Far, and Rejina Pyo that I find myself constantly drawn to.
"Net-a-Porter has been my go-to spot for shopping for a long time but recently I've been especially excited to peruse their site since they have been bringing on more and more fresh talent. Their 'new designers' section has a curated collection of bright young designers like By Far whose strappy sandals I'll be wearing all summer long."
These spots are too good—let the shoe shopping commence.
