  • You might not be leaving your home as often, but right now may be the best time to buy new shoes.

The coronavirus pandemic has had a clear impact on consumer spending habits. With brick-and-mortar stores closed all over and people spending less on non-essential items like fashion, sales are naturally popping up all over the internet.

Considering that new shoes are probably not high on anyone’s priority list right now, it makes sense that shoe brands are particularly motivated to entice us with discounts. But even if you can’t use them right now, it might be a good time to take advantage of the deals and just save them for later.

Whether you’re interested in doing a little retail therapy to cope with social distancing (I’m guilty of this), or you need a new pair of sneakers for your at-home workouts, you’ll find plenty of great styles on sale.
