Kicking Myself With My New Shoes


So Sketchers let me down this season; they typically make this great unisex shoe that is perfect for my lifestyle. I've been wearing this shoe for years. No dice for 2007. So I could go cheaper (no) or go more expensive. I went with John Fluevogs (ouch). Bought them online assuming I'd get them from a distributor in Oklahoma.

Today, I got a phone call from the Prince Street store. A very friendly woman named Karen asked me if I just wanted to come down to the store and pick them up. I thought about it, and said no, I'd rather she ship them.

I get the bill. $12 for shipping uptown. I WOULD HAVE PICKED THEM UP FOR TWELVE DOLLARS!!! I suppose it's dumb of me not to think of it, but she could have said something....you know? I would have.

maulleigh, you're nutso. why didn't you go pick them up yourself in the first place?! i'm such an instant gratification type person that i'd be down there in a second. must. have. now. and i HATE the cost of shipping. i look for so many ways to avoid it.

That's pretty pricey. They should have at least mentioned they weren't sending them UPS slow boat.

Fluevogs are SO worth the $, they last forever. But yes, that is lame! Check on ebay for used vogs, they get listed quite a bit for much cheaper, that is if you can stomach used shoes. Sometimes you'll find new ones too, cheaper than retail.
