When you are
One of my favorite line shopping spots is zappos.com. It was here that I found a nice pair of plain flats. Since I have arthritis in my knees and feet I have long since given up heels except on very special occasions so I need some plain flats that could be dressed up or down. This is what I chose from Clarks--
They are so comfortable and have worn so well that I ordered two more pair, another black and a nice tan. With free shipping how could I not? And you know what? When they didn't have the tan in stock, they even searched their competitors for me and helped me locate them on another site! Who does that anymore. The tan pair was found at onlineshoes.com. They have the same perks like free shipping both ways and were very helpful. The person I talked to on the phone while placing the order was very nice and we had a lovely conversation about the weather. He even sent me a thank you note for my business and he drew me a cartoon of a tornado -- I think he was twelve.
It is summer here in Texas and the one thing I can't stand is to have hot feet so I wear lots of sandals when I am forced to wear shoes at all. So, I visited the Lands End site after receiving a catalogue and purchased these -- again in wides -- and I am very pleased with them -- so pleased in fact, that I bought them in three colors -- tan, tomato red and true navy. I will be wearing the tomato red today.
Summer sandals require cute toes -- cute colorful toes. Two weeks ago I gave myself a really nice pedicure which isn't easy with arthritic knees -- not bendy at all -- but I managed and I thought the toesies looks great in this.
It looked lovely and wore quite well. However, it was time to change things up as I didn't want my toes to clash with my tomato red sandals so I have now changed it to this.
So, that was my shopping adventure of late. I am so glad to be able to find shoes that work for me because hurting feet aren't very attractive when you are forced to walk like Yoda. So, I am looking forward to enjoying a comfortable, free-footed summer.
