Schuh’s website has a secret sale section where you can buy Adidas, Dr Martens and Nike for less than half the price

There’s nothing more enjoyable than unboxing a new pair of sneakers or lacing up your new Dr Martens for the first time. But new shoes are undeniably quite expensive, especially for your favorite brands like Adidas and Nike.

And while the discount codes are nice and all, sometimes 10% off for signing up for a newsletter that you’ll keep getting 10,000 emails for and never open a single one of, doesn’t really make a dent in the overall price.

But there’s a little-known part of the shoe retailer Schuh’s website who sees discounted heels, sneakers, boots and more at a fraction of retail price – just because they’re Ex display.

The site section can be found under the sale tab under ‘offers’ where you can ‘ shop ex display’. There are currently over 1,000 pairs of shoes up for grabs at a lower price, just because of a few imperfections.

Schuh said, “Welcome to our ex-display section. Shoes that have suffered from a little too much interest come here to find forever homes. We feel this is just character building stuff – some products here will have scuffs, discoloration and other individual quirks.

Ex-posting means exactly what it sounds like. These are shoes that have been displayed in store, ready for customers to try on and take a quick walk around the store before they decide to buy them.

Therefore, some of these shoes may have a little scuff or mark here and there. And okay, new, clean shoes are an absolute delight, but how long does it take before the dog comes from the yard and steps on them, or you trip and scratch the corner anyway?
