Help! Trying to find REALLY Cheap Loli shoes!

Yea....I'm buying a lolita dress from either Momo's Store on E-bay or Rakuenfashion.com and they are pretty spendy as it is for the dress!

Does anyone know anyplace that has pretty Lolita shoes? Or at least pretty MaryJanes that are $35 and under? >.<

Thankies in advanced!

Wow... $35 or under is pretty low, but if I were you I would check some underground fashion stores in your area. I live in Denver and get my loli shoes from Fashion Nation and other similar places. You may also, while this sounds a tad odd try some fetish shoe websites, like retrodiva.com and the like, ebay is the old standby you know, always have cheap shoes.

I have two pairs of Demonia shoes I bought at Cosworx, both approximately $35 before shipping, that aren't too godawful. Demonia is also available in other places like actual storefronts as well. If you're looking for the really frilly loli shoes, you're probably out of luck. There are eBay stores that sell them for reasonable prices, but the international shipping is usually hefty.

For more affordable quality clothes.

www.annahousefashion.com (prices in HKD)

www.fan plus friend.com(order outside of the holiday season they tend to slack off and rush orders and quality during that time)

I would have to agree and disagree with the above.
Momo is for certian a do not buy,
but Rakuen has great clothing,
I own a dress from them myself.
AnnaHouse is also a good buy
(again I own from them).


As for shoes If you buy from AnnaHouse
they also sell shoes for a low price.

Rakuen isn't bad. But it's quality is below anna house. And some of their designs are kinda "OMG LACE WE NEED MORE LACE!!!!!" and their lace isnt that great.

Clueless Case- Haha, plus eye-bleeding dots..
Actually I don't like my annahouse items much.
(If you go through my pictures you can see what I bought)
The skirt is soooo incredibly heavy and stiff.
Plus the sizings are far to big for me
(but thats just me and I'm fairly petite)
my skirt actually has to be safety-pined in the back.
The shirt is cute, but see-through,
also once I lace the back to a size that fits me it has problems
(then again everyone won't have this same problem).

I hope the actual dresses aren't the same way,
in the future I plan to buy one.

Other than some of the desings on Rakuen are a little... much
(although they probably look better in person,
I've been told that with the dress I got from them)
Usually I don't buy dresses with lace, so I wouldn't know the quality personally.
I have a problem with their bows not staying on,
as well as it being slightly see-through,
but other than that I prefer them.

Anna house are great, wonderful service too, and those are very affordable prices, when you go get into this style, be prepared to spend a pretty penny. Don't do bodyline either, gross. It's best to just look around your local shops.


I say save up, and get yourself something really nice. :}

Actuall whats really awesome is save up some dough and get a luck pack from one of the brands like Angelic Pretty or Baby the stars shine bright. For like 200 bucks you can get a whole outfit literally from head to toe.

have you tried a local thrift store? i often find a lot of chunky shoes (some mary janes as well) at thrift stores. you may need a shoe polisher to fix them up a bit. also try adding bows to them. anyone have a tutorial for those pleather bow clip-ons?

This is just a small tip from an oober cheapskate, but I bought my loli shoes from Marshall Fields about 3 years ago (back when Marshall Fields still existed XD) and they were about $20 or so :P yay for 75% off sales!

My cheapo suggestion is that you wait for clearence sales that happens ever so often with malls near you and just go through their stuff. It's quite fun and when you find the perfect shoes it really makes you feel like you've accomplished something XD

yes, i needed shoes FAST once and was able to get some low white heels with pink ribbons on them at my local Marshalls for $16 on clearance. They look really nice with my dresses, but how easily you will find cheap shoes all depends on what you're looking for.
