I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Nine West. Let me explain:
The good: Nine West shoes are usually cute, reasonably priced, and good quality. Plus you can find them practically everywhere.
The bad: The vast majority of their shoes are leather. Furthermore, their website does a terrible job with their product details, so it’s nearly impossible to tell online what the shoes are made of.
The ugly: Their customer service reps on their 800 line have provided false information to me on several occasions. I have called to find out what materials certain shoes are made out of, since their website does not provide proper information, and was told that the shoes I was asking about are 100% synthetic when in fact they were made of real leather!
The redemption: The Nine West *outlet* saves the brand from being a total vegan no-no. I have found that most of the shoes in their outlet stores are vegan. I bought two pairs of really nice pumps (pictured here), as well as my favorite pair of faux snakeskin flats. Plus these shoes are usually way cheaper than their regular line of shoes! I wish the outlet had its own website, like the JCrew Factory store.
Garison by Nine West (outlet) – $59.99
Paige by Nine West (outlet) – $59.99
Currently the outlet has a promo where if you buy one pair, you get a second pair half off, so I got these two pairs for $90. Not a bad deal.
These would fit perfectly into my Black and Nude Pump Roundup post!
