Women's shoe store Wittner is known for their on-trend yet often high quality footwear. Until now, their outlet stores have been small shops located within DFO shopping centres. The recently opened Wittner Outlet and E-Store in Heatherton is an entirely new experience. The sprawling store houses endless rows of heavily discounted shoes.
The Wittner shoe outlet in Heatherton features an overwhelming array of bargains.
The Wittner outlet is set up as a store within a store. As you walk in, you face an inner section featuring current season stock. This section is no different than any other Wittner shop, with trendy full-priced footwear spaced out on the brightly lit shelves.
Footwear outlet shoes are often prone to having only very small and very large sizes. The Wittner outlet does not suffer from this fault. My Average Jane-sized feet were impressed by the variety of size 38s available.
As well as the walls of shoes, there are also rows of shoes organised by style. Dressy heels, work-appropriate heels, tall boots, ankle boots and more are available. Boxed shoes in all sizes await on the shelves under the display shoes. Not all sizes are available in all styles, but most do seem to have 38s, 38s, and other popular sizes.
The discounts vary wildly. Wittner heels are usually $150 - $200 at full price. The more expensive sale heels tend to be around the $70 mark, but many are even as low as $20. I scored a pair of leather ankle boots for $30, down from $170.
A section of the store is dedicated to the very cheapest stock. Some pairs from this section are dirty, but most suffer from the affliction of hideousness.
The Wittner outlet in Heatherton is worth a trip, whether you are a stiletto enthusiast or are looking for practical everyday or work shoes.
