Arranged by size going up in increments of half sizes, Diana Ferrari caters for the small-footed, big-footed and everyone in between. I often find with clearance centres that it is difficult to get average sizes, but the size 7.5, 8 and 8.5 sections were just as generously stocked as larger and smaller footwear.
Shoes are categorised by size, with the newest stock displayed in the centre of the store.
Most shoes on sale at the factory outlet do not have anything visibly wrong with them, although they are often out-of-season, or will be soon. There is a huge range of styles and shoe types available, from flats to formal footwear, with plenty to be had for shoe lovers both young and old.
Located awkwardly behind the cash register is a packed display of handbags and clutches, all with dangling price tags proclaiming their new reduced cost.
When I went, the number 70 seemed to dominate the store- seventy percent off, under seventy dollars and the like. Not bad considering a typical pair of heels from Diana Ferrari would set you back about $150. The sales they run vary, but you can always be assured of getting a discount.
The factory outlet's hours are a bit scattered. They are open from 9:00am to 5:30pm from Monday to Thursday, 9:00am to 6:00pm on Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm on Saturday, and 11:00am to 4:00pm on Sunday. Located in the Puckle Street precinct, they are close to Moonee Ponds railway station and a brief walk away from the 59 and 82 tram stops on Pascoe Vale Road.
