Decker’s Factory Outlet

Shoe Factory Outlet
Ventura

By Suzanne O'Connor

A weekend trip with my daughter’s school to Ventura somehow left me with a couple open hours with nothing to do. So what did I do…. Shop of course !

I hadn’t been into the Decker’s Shoe outlet in quite a few years and really wanted to pop in and see what was up.

This Distribution Factory Outlet mostly carries what the folks at Decker’s calls “Grade B” shoes by UGG, Simple, Teva, Tsubo and Mozo. Grade B refers to cosmetic flaws. The dye lot was off… the stitching was the wrong color etc. But there’s nothing defective that would effect the use or wear of the shoe. After examining a lot of shoes the flaws were so insignificant that I could only find one shoe out of hundreds with any visible flaw and it had to be pointed out to me by the sales staff. Really…

The store is reasonably well organized with a helpful staff.  Its rather sparse in the décor department, but you wont care once you get a hold of these savings…. serious at 50%-75% off the original retail. But be forewarned…the turnover is fast and furious with Ebayers buying shoes & boots here by the dozen.

The Saturday morning I went in I found women’s and men’s short classic UGG Boots at $79. Retail is $150. Taller, classic UGGS are $99 here instead of a retail of $180-$200. Some short, UGG ‘booties were just $49.

A women’s Lillie boot was here at $59 that would retail at $160—$180. A women’s UGG work boot / cowboy boot retails at $240 but is here at $79. A women’s Teva hiking sneaker was $29.99 instead of $80. Some Teva sandals were $24.99 instead of $70. I found a large group of Teva thongs at $4.99. Retail is $25

Some men’s Teva water shoes were $9.99.  Mens’ UGG Moccasins were $49.99 instead of $100 and men’s Tsubo Shoes ran $39-$49 that retail at $120-$160.

I saw a bunch of Children’s UGG boots, sandals and booties at $9.99!  Kids sandals by Teva were $14.99.

I didn’t see any of the new UGG clog line here. But some will probably show up as the season progresses.

Of course you’ll have to give each pair a good look over to see if you can find any flaws or variations in dye or texture. But I only found one. Guess they’re standards are pretty high. They carry a full size range here most the time, but with all outlets the inventory can vary dramatically especially since Ebayers have discovered the store..

Considering the savings offered here, it’s well worth the trip, especially if you can go with a friend for a fun day of shopping.  This is one heck of an outlet store!
