Big sales on shoes led to big fights at Saks Fifth Avenue Monday.

Shoppers went a little crazy over a 60 percent off sale at the department store.

The shoe department was even shut down as women fought over bargains.

The sale was supposed to go until noon on Monday, but shoppers turned aggressive when they were worried they might not be able to buy their shoes on time.

People in line panicked and at least two women were fighting, witnesses said.

Security guards shut down and cleared out the eighth-floor women's shoe section at 11:30 a.m. because of the overcrowding.
