Shoes blow the budget

September 2nd, 2007 at 07:07 pm

In the last week and a half I have spent almost $300 for shoes. I know that is a lot of money but it was not without careful consideration. I have really hard feet to fit so shoes are the one thing I willingly spend money on. If the feet ain't happy I ain't happy. I have to have steel toe shoes for work so that was one pair. I also swear by merrells for hiking/trail shoes and I wear them as my everyday shoes. In fact they fit me so well that just wearing those shoes has lessened my plantar faciatis.
Anyway, I found my favorite style of merrells on shoebuy.com so I got them and then this weekend they had a 20% off sale for labor day so I bought another pair for the discount.
I highly recommend Shoebuy.com. The prices are very competitive and they offer no sales tax or shipping and they will even pay for shipping for returns. Not bad.
So yea, I blew the budget for shoes but I feel like it was a good investment.

    I love Merrell shoes! And shoebuy.com. I agree that it is worth it to spend money on shoes especially if you have an active job. I tend to stand on my feet all day so I want a pair of shoes that will keep my feet feeling happy.

    We internet order for son who has worn the exact same model of shoe for six years. Internet has been the only way to get a discount on his unusual size. They have free shipping this week, but son doesn't need new for a while....Generally my better quality and comfort shoes have been my more expensive ones. But then there is this pair of $11 suede shoes from Walmart that just keep on going and feel great.
