‘Tis the season… for great deals on boots?

The stars aligned this morning to reveal deep, sweeping discounts across the internet on boots for the entire family.

Whether boots are on your gift list or you’re shopping for yourself (we won’t tell!), here’s where to find the deals.

Where to Find the Best Deals on Boots This Week

We don’t have evidence that stores worked together to put all their shoes on sale this week, but here’s where to look if you’ve been dreaming of a new pair of boots.


Take 50% off at checkout when you purchase select men’s, women’s, boys’ or girls’ boots online.

Fashion and winter-weather styles are both included. Clearance items are excluded. Offer expires Dec. 14 at 11:59 p.m.

Cole Haan

Select items are 50% off at checkout. Feast your eyes on chic booties for $100 or knee-high riding boots for $200. This offer ends at 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 14.

Even after the discount, the prices might not strike you as “penny hoarding,” but fans from our staff report these shoes are built to last.


Best-selling styles are discounted by 30 to 50%, including the Michelle Classic Slim, which costs $134.99 instead of $195.

Order by Dec. 15 to get free standard shipping.


Take an extra 15% off sale and clearance items with promo code MERRY. Macy’s clearance shoes note the original price, first sale price, clearance price and final cost after discount code for each pair.

The code expires Dec. 15, and you’ll get free shipping if you spend $49 or more.


Many styles are marked down 50% for a limited time. Prices shown reflect the discount, which brings the price of many pairs of boots down to under $100.

Get free shipping when you spend $70 or more.

It’s OK If These Sales Don’t Shock You

Discounts of 50% or more have become the norm since the recession, but retailers reduced inventory this year hoping they wouldn’t have to offer such deep discounts to boost sales, the Wall Street Journal reported.

It looks like the plan is backfiring, as sales of up to 50% off this season’s items have been the norm since the week before Thanksgiving.

But that’s not your problem.

Your bonus mission, should you choose to go on a shoe-buying adventure today, is to make sure you earn cash back on your online purchase. Consult Cashback Monitor before checking out — for example, you could get up to 10% cash back at Macy’s.
