Inexpensive Yet Chic Shoes Come Our Way

Crosby suede woven sandal, $65, and Prince suede peep-toe wedge, $69. Both available at

Cute shoes that are budget-friendly and good quality are the holy grail of fashion — and generally impossible to find. But this Monday, a new label called Marais USA will be available online. The line of flats, sandals, and heels will offer nine styles in a range of bright colors (cherry red, eggplant purple, and cobalt blue to name a few) and classics hues (black and chestnut brown). Best of all, the shoes range in price from just $49–$65 for flats and sandals and $69 for heels. The designers, Catherine Chen and Haley Boyd, named the line for the famed Marais district in Paris, a neighborhood they fell in love with during a summer abroad together. The mission of the company is to create simple, versatile shoes for all us girls who can't afford to shell out $500 or more on a pair each season. In addition to selling the line on their website, Marais USA will also be carried at Built by Wendy, In God We Trust, and Otte. It's time to start collecting shoes again.
