We were recently tipped off about a drastically discounted shoe selection over at Filene's Basement on State Street, and from the photos we got, it's not to be missed. On top of the stock's deep markdowns, the multiple store-stamped sale stickers on the Derek Lam, Lanvin and Jil Sander heels make us think they may in fact be from the much-discussed Barney's Warehouse Sale in New York.
There are multiple colors and sizes of the shoes available, and with an extra 40% off all of them, the discounts are huge. All of Jil Sander's shoes appear to be the biggest steal — ranging between $299 and $399 — and with the extra markdowns, you could take home a pair of $299 shoes for just $180.
Though our tipster found them "pretty uncomfortable and difficult to walk in" despite wearing heels often, she let us know that they were all gorgeous and "perfect". After all, who needs to even move when your shoes are impeccable?—Chai Lee
