New shoes

I saw this post on Suzanne’s blog about the shoes she was ordering….I needed a pair of dark tennis shoes for the winter with good support for all the walking we do. I ordered these Thursday and they came on Friday…free shipping and rather than the 4-5 days they promised, they arrived overnight.

At first when I put them on they felt kind of weird but I wore them when we walked downtown for dinner last night and they were really comfortable. The reviews warned that they ran about a half size small but I’m not sure I completely agree. Normally I wear a 7 or 7 and 1/2 so so I ordered the 7 and 1/2. I tend to wear thicker socks in the winter so they’ll work just fine for me but they felt a little, tiny bit loose with my thinner socks.

Funny, I was telling my SIL and Keith that I’d ordered my first pair of shoes online and she said she orders shoes all the time from Zappos…which is exactly where I ordered these…free shipping both ways. Can’t beat that.

  1. I ordered from Zappos a few years ago…. that company has an interesting history. Unfortunately I don’t recall it exactly.. something about a couple of college guys who started it on a whim or something??? And made it big.

  2. Hello! great to hear you had a good experience with mail order shoes, I worry about ordering things offline that I could not try on.. I also enjoy seeing the photo workshops you are doing. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

  3. The Keen shoes in photo at Zappos link- you purchased those? I have a grey pair and love them. My podiatrist said Keen makes good shoes. Found my Keen shoes from a seller on ebay for about half the regular price. They make a comfy Mary Jane style shoe I like too. Yes, I also thought they were true to size.
