What To Buy In The Sales: The Smart Shoe Shopping Edition

I try to be practical about my sale purchases post-Christmas. Despite my pragmatic nature though, I've been known to make shopping decisions based on what will look great in my wardrobe short-term, instead of carefully curating it with pieces that will withstand time and fast fashion. This year, I'm being sensible when show shopping, choosing styles that will both look great and provide me with lasting comfort. From chic mid-heels, the perfect leather boot, to urban-ready trainers, below are five types of shoes worth investing in during this years' online sales.
