When Shoe Shopping Fails
I gave in. I ordered shoes from Zappos. One of my coworkers buys her shoes from there and she brings her shoes to work to return them. Free and easy returns are the Zappos' claim to fame. I never thought I would even be tempted to buy shoes online but after trying on many different pairs at many different stores, I was tired of driving around town. I found a nice sensible pair of New Balance sneakers which came in wide and ordered them knowing that returns were easy. They were a little more than I usually spend at $70 but I needed shoes and if they are good shoes then they will be worth it. The days went by and I was actually looking forward to Monday for a change. There they were on my doorstep. I carefully opened the box and tried them on. They fit! I am thrilled.
I'll wear them to work tomorrow and see how they do on my lunchtime walk. It's a good thing the dress code at work has gotten very casual. I wear jeans and sneakers everyday now and no one cares. Oh, and wouldn't you know it, my only non-sandal, non-sneaker shoes decided to die today.
I've only had them, like, 6 years or something. Now I'll have to look at Zappos again for something non-sneaker.
