Skechers are among the most popular brands of shoes, providing comfortable, attractive footwear options for work, play and sports. But with prices ranging from $30–50 for most products, budget-conscious families may be forced to find cheaper brands.

But thanks to coupons and discount websites, you may be able to move through your day in comfort without spending a fortune. Before you head out to the department store, check out these options that can save you $10 or more on your next pair of Skechers.

1. Skechers Elite™

Skechers provides Elite members e-mail notifications of exclusive offers and birthday specials. You'll also earn one point for every dollar you spend in Skechers stores or on the website, with a $10 gift certificate given for every 100 points earned. Elite members are notified of bonus-point opportunities, as well. Create a Skechers account and make sure the box is checked that states, "Yes, I would like FREE membership in the Skechers Elite™ program."

2. Online Deals

We've written extensively about RetailMeNot, which offers coupon codes that can provide discounts. The site has an entire page dedicated to Skechers coupons, providing up to 50 percent off at times. eBay, 6pm.com, and Amazon are also great sites for finding deals on Skechers.

3. Kohl's

One of the best ways to get name-brand items is to take advantage of one of Kohl's many specials. The company frequently mails coupons to customers that can provide 20 percent off or more. If you haven't already, sign up for Kohl's Sales Alerts, which will let you know when the department store chain is having a sale or clearance event.

4. Outlet stores

Skechers Outlet stores are located across the country, often in outlet malls with other discount stores. With frequent 50 percent off sales and clearance shelves in each store, these locations can be a great place to get a great price on Skechers, especially if you don't mind buying last season's design. Skechers outlet stores are located across the country. Use this store locator to find a Skechers Factory Outlet near you.

5. Social media
