It’s raining and miserable outside, and I don’t even have my gaudy rubber puddle-jumping boots so it’s a good day to stay in, drink lots of tea, and think about summer. (And brainstorm about the Hindutva movement, but that’s for after the tea.)
I bought two pairs of shoes Monday morning from Endless.com, Amazon’s newest ploy to take my money. Because of their -$5 overnight shipping deal (choose overnight shipping and get $5 off) I received them Tuesday. When I placed my order they claimed that deal was “only for February” but now I see it’s just a “special limited time promotion”. I have to say, it’s a very powerful incentive for me buying shoes, not only to not have to pay shipping but also to get them so quickly. I also like their return policy, which gives you 365 days to send them back. Of course, you are still subject to the usual (unworn, original packaging), so keep them on carpet, but since sending packages is very inconvenient for me here on campus, I appreciate having the chance to wait until my folks are around to help me. Overall, I have no complaints about Endless, and even scored an unexpected bargain!
These shoes I posted once already, and I’m glad I took the plunge and bought them. They’re wonderfully comfortable; the footbed is really and truly padded, and the incline is so slight they almost feel flat. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Perfect everyday shoe for summer, when my wardrobe switches to all skirts all the time.
These were the bargain — only $20! This is what made me decide to go ahead and buy some shoes; the order total came to about $100 so each pair averaged out to $50, which is practically a steal, right? I have a sick, sick little mind.
Anyway, these are also quite cute (as is my hotpot for tea-making, posing in the background). The trouble I tend to have with Naturalizer is that because they make wide sizes, their regular width is actually sort of narrow (for me, anyway; I have this weird sticky-out knobby thing that makes my feet wider at an inopportune spot). So these are maybe a little tight but not more so than most shoes I own.
I’ve got my eye on a pair of wedges from Børn already. O shoes! I just can’t quit you.
