I’m a very gotta-have-it-now express shipping kind of shoe buyer so when I know a style won’t be on my feet until February, March or April I usually wait. A pre-order makes sense when I find that absolutely-in-love (over-the-fence, World Series kind of stuff) shoe that I know is a rare or coveted style only carried at a few retailers.
I receive emails daily from readers trying to find their must-have shoe when unfortunately their size sold out. Pre-ordering is a good way to snag your favorite next season shoe – especially if your size is always sold out or you take a half size like me!
My favorite pre-order potentials for spring are featured below. I also added a few styles from new Pre-Fall 2014 collections which are currently available for a limited time at the pre-order hub, Moda Operandi.
These colorblock strappy sandals are from the Cruise 2014 collection featuring 5 front buckled straps, cutout back panel and back-zip closure. I love the mixed media tricolor design blending 5 different materials including lizard-printed black leather, lizard-embossed metallic rose gold leather, pale coral patent leather, yummy lemon leather and shimmery coral leather. Half sizes are available and there are also similar styles with a shorter heel.
