Shoes Made in Italy Wholesale
Most women have some kind of shopping fetish. For some it is clothes, or others it is purses and for still others it is shoes. My mom is a purse fanatic, I mean she has an entire walk-in closet dedicated to just her purses! We literally stood in line for her just to enter a Michael Kors outlet this year on black Friday for over 2 hours. It was sheer insanity. I love a good bargain as much as the other person, but not enough to spend over 2 hours in line to just get into the store. Yet there were plenty of people doing it, and plenty of them came out of the store empty handed. Let me tell you if I stand in line for over 2 hours, there had better be something in the store at a good enough price for me to want to purchase it. Or else, there are going to be some pretty choice words coming out of my mouth! I have a friend who is a shoe lady. She will drive clear across town in massive traffic just to snag a good deal on a pair of shoes. Soon her Italian shoe collection will be so plentiful that she will be able to wear a different pair every day of the year. But what if we could find a way to get the shoes our heart desires without standing in line or driving in crazy traffic at a price that meets our budget? Is this actually plausible? Well let’s explore some options and see if just maybe, our shoe dreams can actually come true without putting us in serious debt.
We are on a search for shoes made in Italy wholesale. Let’s hope that our search is successful. One of the first sellers we found was Paola Firenze. Paola Firenze boasts that they follow fashion trends with a sophisticated touch, and an elegant style, while staying true to quality. Named after the founder’s wife, Paola Firenze does offer an extensive line of boots of various heights, a small number of ballet flats and a handful of lace up shoes. They cater only to women. While they say they are a wholesale Italian shoe provider, there prices are not listed on-line. Hmmm. And you can only purchase their shoes at their ten locations in …. Italy, or the one location in France. So, if you happen to be looking for the perfect excuse to book that trip to Italy or France, maybe Paola Firenze just gave you the reason. If you go, let us know if their prices qualify to be in the wholesale category, we would love to know.
Aquatalia is also brags about their shoes made in Italy wholesale. Patrons can purchase their shoes online, which is a step in the right direction. And their inventory is quite broad, in both men’s and women’s shoes and boots. All of their shoes are also weather-proof and can be worn in rain or snow for those customers needing them for inclement weather. They have a rare women’s wedge boot in wine and black that is so comfortable they named it the “Jewel”. And a pair of leopard print shoes with either a chunky heel or a kitten heel, that would liven up any lady’s outfit. Their men’s boot line is expansive, giving the guys more than enough choices. But their real pair of lookers in the men’s department is their black and taupe snakeskin patterned slip-ons with a monk buckle. Guys could dress these up with a suit or dress them down with a pair of jeans. Sounds great so far, but …. Aquatalia’s prices most definitely are not wholesale as they suggest. The least expensive pair of women’s shoes is $225 and goes up from there, upwards of $750! And men you are looking at the same price range. Apparently, Aquatalia’s definition of wholesale is slightly different than ours, because this price range does not make our affordable shoe dreams come true.
Next, we found the Italeau, shoes handcrafted in Italy. Sounds promising, doesn’t it? As we explored this option we did find cute Italian shoes and boots, all made from weatherproof leather. Italeau is for ladies only, sorry guys. Their styles are really nothing to write home about though, just basic shoes and boots similar to what you might see in any department store or payless shoes. And one of the prime advantages of owning Italian shoes is the unique styles and distinct patterns. Moreover, most of their shoes hover in the $300-$495 range, with a few pair in the $200 and just 2 pair in the sale section under $200. They do offer free shipping and deliver, which is a plus. However, this is not what we had in mind when we started looking for quality Italian shoes for a wholesale price. While we are disappointed, we refuse to give up.
