SoleSociety online shoe shopping club

Sole Society

Grade: A-

What it is: Sole Society is an online monthly shoe shopping club owned by HauteLook (a flash sale site). The membership fee is $49.99 per month per item.

What we found: Fun shoes! Besides its normal selection, Sole Society also creates special collections, like the Marco Santi collection that’s “edgy and Italian-inspired.” And the site also offers a cool look book that explores the latest fashion trends.

As for the quality, our team agreed Sole Society had the most well-made shoes out of any of the clubs. When we checked out a pair, our editors felt they’d run $60 to $100.

However, your online customized closet only comes with six selections, and if you don’t like those selections you have to wait 24 hours to get a new closet. If you want to return the shoes for a refund, expect a $7.95 restocking fee and $9 shipping return fee. But if you just want to exchange them, there are no fees.
