Fall is Shoe Shopping time at Great Mall of the Bay Area

Fall is always shoe shopping season in our household. The kids' feet always seem to sprout over the summer, and all of a sudden their running shoes and soccer shoes and ballet shoes and sandals feel tight. It has become a tradition to go shoe shopping at the start of the school year, and I have to say that going back to school always seems easier when you're armed with a nice new pair of shoes!

Along with fall shoe shopping, it has become a family tradition to shop for our shoes at the Great Mall of the Bay Area. They have so many great bargains on shoes that I can't remember a time that we haven't found the perfect pair of shoes at Great Mall. Sometimes my kids say they want to keep looking at other stores, but they never seem to find the variety, the sizes, and the prices, so we've always ended up going back to Great Mall and getting their shoes there!

Great Mall has bargains on shoes (and everything else) every day of the year, but Fall seems to be a particularly great time to go shoe shopping there. The fall styles have arrived in the Great Mall stores, so there are all kinds of cute chunky heeled booties, velvet flats, and all the latest trends -- all at great prices, up to 70% off retail! As if the variety of styles and great prices isn't enough, Great Mall is offering a couple of fun promos during this Fall Shoe Shopping Season. They are giving away a pair daily from September 12 – September 30 and offering shoppers a chance to win a Simon® gift card to put toward new shoes!

Vans® Shoe Giveaway

Great Mall Facebook fans will have the chance to win a pair of Vans shoes every day. Each winner will receive a Vans voucher to redeem for one pair of shoes inside the Vans store at Great Mall.

The official rules and regulations are available at Great Mall’s Guest Services booth.

Last Friday I took advantage of a lull at work and headed to Great Mall to shop for shoes -- not for my kids, for myself! Walking around Great Mall is one of my favorite ways to spend some quality "me" time. I get lots of exercise (the place is HUGE!), I can treat myself to some of my favorite foods, and I have fun finding some great bargains.

At Dick's Sporting Goods, I found a pair of Nike Zoom Vomero running shoes for $120. Zoom Vomeros are the only running shoes I have worn for 10 years and the only kind I will ever wear. I usually pay $130-$150 for them, and I was all ready to buy them, but I decided to keep walking around. After all, they were on regular sale, not clearance, and my feet are big, so I was reasonably sure they wouldn't sell out.

Then I went into Cole Haan, and I found a classic pair of black leather wedges, the you always want at least one of in your closet. The kind Jackie O was probably wearing as First Lady, the kind I'll probably be wearing when I'm 90 and want to look nice but can't be bothered to wear stilettos. They are so stylish and they actually make my gigantic feet look slim :)

When I looked at the price tag, I literally did a double take: $20. For Cole Haan! The original price (I even went online and checked because I always think that MSRP's are overinflated) for these shoes is $180, so I got them at almost 90% off. Yes, of course I got them! How could I not? I even had enough left over in my budget to get the running shoes!

If you live in the Bay Area, you need to run, don't walk, to Great Mall before their Fall Shoe Shopping event ends!
