Write it down so you remember in ten months: Stuart Weitzman’s December sale has incremental markdowns. The first pair is marked down 30 percent, the second 40, and the third 50. The atmosphere is claustrophobic but civilized. 625 Madison Ave., nr. 59th St.; 212-750-2555.
The Delman sales, which take place in the company’s showroom in May and November, are total chaos as women rummage through box after box, but the extensive stock means there’s a good chance of finding a foot-slimming flat in your size for about $100 (versus $314.95 in the store). The showroom is moving in March. Call 212-399-2323 for new location details.
FOR NEW STYLES
A schlep to Flatbush, and the store’s odd hours (it closes at 5:30), means that Shoes at Esti’s is still under the radar for designer shoes at a bargain. The June and December sales are worth it; recently, a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs black suede peep toes trimmed with black and white lizard were whittled down to $158. 1888 Coney Island Ave., nr. Ave. O, Flatbush, Brooklyn; 718-376-3661.
FOR PARTY SHOES
There are two Chuckies locations, so stampedes are unlikely during the biannual sales. Good for Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, etc. 1073 Third Ave., nr. 63rd St.; 212-593-9898; and 1169 Madison Ave., at 86th St.; 212-249-2254.
