This is a great thing, right? Guess what, none of my current shoes fit my foot! :( It's still pretty swollen so my regular shoes are not wide enough So I've been on the hunt for a shoe to get me by for the next few months. I don't want to spend big money as I hopefully won't need a wide width eventually.
I do not have an easy to foot to fit, I wear a womens sz. 12. :( I can't walk into any ol' store and pick up a pair. I ordered 9 pairs in a wide width from Zappos, which I love by the way. Free fast shipping and free return shipping. It's like a shoe store comes to my door. Love it! But this time not a one of the 9 pair fit so they are all going back. :(
I checked out our local stores but no dice there either.
So yesterday, a 2 hour drive later, I arrived at The Shoe Box in Black Earth, Wisconsin. It's the only store within a reasonable radius that carries a selection in my size and their service is second to none. I tried on "just a few pair." Quite honestly, I lost count after 15 pair. The girl assisting me was so kind and helpful which is the type of service we usually find at The Shoe Box. She had great suggestions and understood where I was coming from and how I had to proceed.
I finally found one I could live with. I really didn't want a tennis shoe since I will be wearing this shoe for the next 3 months to work, church, everywhere, but it's what I could find that fit and felt good so I'm going with it.
Neither Zappos or The Shoe Box paid me a dime to mention them.
