Insomniac Sale Picks: Low-heeled or Wedge Mary Janes

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Laura requested a few picks for comfortable Mary Janes with a low heel or wedge, so here we go:

1482188-p-MULTIVIEW

Frye Lois MJ – was $168, now $137.99

Still spendy, I know, but I couldn’t pass up the chance to include a pair of Fryes in a sale picks post! And friends, these have a 2.25″ heel, but also a 0.75″ platform for a 1.5″ heel feel. NICE. Available in black, brown, and smoke “brush off” which has a bit of a patina to it, in US sizes 5.5 – 11. Size availability varies by color.

Naturalizer Norra Wedge Pump – was $89, now $38 – $62.29

Another go-to brand for comfort, and these low wedges are just darling. With a rich suede upper and 1.5″ wedge, this shoe is a great bet for summer dresses and skirts but will tuck under pantlegs beautifully, too. Available in this navy, tan, black, and dark brown in US sizes 4 – 12, including some narrow and wide widths. Size availability and price vary by color.

8. ECCO - Omora Strap (Black Starbuck)

ECCO Omora Strap – was $150, now $134.99

Said it before, will say again: ECCO shoes are amazing. Well-made, comfortable, and ever so pretty. I’m seeing variable heel heights from 3.5″ to 2.5″ on several sites, but considering the heel style I can pretty much guarantee these will be comfy and walkable. Not 8-hour shoes, but fabulous for work and weekend. Available in Euro sizes 36 – 41, sold out in 37. (Also available on Amazon and the ECCO site.) And if that heel is just plain too high, check out the similar but shorter-heeled ECCO New Heaven Buckle instead.

Rieker D6400 Fleur – was $125, now $69.99

I don’t own any Reikers myself, but have several clients who SWEAR by the brand. I adore the oversized buckle and studs on the strap. Heel is a mere 1.75″. Available in black and brown with black accents in Euro sizes 36 – 41. Size availability varies by color.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for comfortable Mary Janes with a low heel or wedge:

  1. Tsubo – Both the Acrea and Asmik are incredibly comfortable shoes.
  2. Camper – This Spanish brand seems to specialize in Mary Janes, all with relatively low heels. Love these with a comfy 1.5″ heel. Also check eBay.
  3. Clarks – Lots of comfy options, both casual and dressy.

    The Fryes are down to $90. Eeee! I have no business buying shoes right now, but I’m very tempted.

  2. Full Clutch

    I can vouch for the Tsubo Asmik–really comfortable and easy to style. I’m planning to wear them for travel this summer when I’ll be walking a lot but still want to look cute. Order a half size bigger than normal. I found them on 6pm a month or two ago for $65, which was a total steal!

  3. Lady Harriet

    I owned a pair of Campers almost identical to the ones you linked (until a terrible shoe repair place lost them) and they were incredibly uncomfortable. It was sad, because they were SO cute, but they definitely ran narrow and had zero padding or arch support inside. After a year with shoe trees in them and some insoles, they were better, but I lost them before I could wear them again. I wouldn’t recommend the brand.

    Sally, thank you so much for answering my question! These options are great!

    The Fryes were indeed down to $90, so I just snapped them up. I walk to work, so I need something really durable, with a finish that will hold up. Fryes should be perfect!

    I finally realized that while the ball of my foot is normal width, my heels are narrow, so standard pumps or ballet flats always move up and down my heels, scraping them badly. The maryjane strap is essential for me, but it really limited my options. Thank you for helping!

    Okay, those Fryes are gorgeous. That is all I have to say about that.

    On another note, I found a pair of Camper shoes similar to the ones you posted but with a slightly higher heel at Goodwill for only $7! Steals and deals, yo.

  6. Jamie

    Unfortunately I owned those Fryes and promptly sold them on ebay. Unlike the similar oxford they have, these are painfully shallow and short in the toe box, the strap twists around, and they were generally miserable. The Frye Lois Mary Jane is fantastic, though.

  7. Brianne

    Thanks for the reminder about Naturalizer. That’s where my mom bought all her shoes when I was growing up because she’s a 4/4.5. Even though I really wear a size 5 I usually just given in and wear shoes that are too big. I’m finally trying to get out of that habit and buy nicer shoes at the Nordstrom Rack. I’ll check out these Naturalizers too.

    Also try this style from Fidji, Cobb Hill, Earthies, and Naya. These brands put out cute quality Mary Jane styles every season.
