Tips on where to buy sale-price shoes (Northampton brands)?

Hi everyone. I'm based in the UK and I'm looking for a new pair of Oxfords. Just wondered if anyone had any tips on where to buy reduced/sale items shoes? I believe Loake once had an eBay shopfront for factory seconds, but this seems to be defunct now. Otherwise, Herring seem to have some good deals from time to time. And then buying offline, I guess there's Bicester Village? Though I'm not sure if they do brands other than Church's. I'm also not sure how significant the markdowns are.

Any advice more than welcome!

Late reply, but might be helpful.

If you can make the trip, I think most of the Northampton shoemakers have factory outlets in Northampton itself, but check which days they are open.

If you’re open to pre-owned, I have heard good things about Marrkt and Abbots Shoes (in the latter, many of the shoes look in almost new condition).

Some of the stores in London will also run seasonal sale - I know C&J does discounts of about 20-40% in store here and there.

Hope it helps!

Excellent! Thank you both. I'll definitely check out some of those sites. The C&J store discounts is a good shout too, particularly given that they have seem to have most of their stores here in London.
