According to the said survey, around 49% of online consumers prefer designer shoes over any other fashion accessory that they have. One interpretation of the survey is that despite the costs of designer shoes, relatively they are still the most affordable items in the world of designer apparel, sunglasses comes in second, followed by wallets, handbags and belts.
