An eagle-eyed Racked tipster emailed us a heads-up that Bluefly—which prides itself on selling current and past season merchandise at a steep discount off MSRP—totally inflated the original retail price on these Miu Miu patent leather stiletto sandals. Bluefly claims the original price on these shoes is $2,476. Compared to Bluefly's price of $580.80, that seems like an amazing deal, right? Well, sure. But these shoes were never $2,476—they were $595 (the correct original pricing is cited for the red/beige pair). Still, it's a deal, right? But instead of saving $1,895.20, you'll be saving $14.20.
