    Default Shoebuy explosion

    I did something yesterday that I've never done before:

    back story- I went shoe shopping in stores yesterday with my mom to buy cute walking casual shoes. We are going to Europe in 8 weeks and I want something besides sneakers to tour in, plus I need a good pair of work shoes anyway.

    I have big feet- after I had my first child I went from a 10m to an 11 or 12..depending on the shoe is can be a 11w or 12m. IT SUCKS. So ever after going to 4 specialty stores yesterday, I could find nothing in my size or the type of shoe I wanted.

    Fast forward to shoebuy.com- I often shop here, but the most I have ever bought at once is 2 pairs. This time I thought, "screw it....I'm ordering 6 pairs of shoes, some of the same shoe in 2 sizes, etc". And these are all $100-$120 shoes.

    How SR ties in? It's gonna be MIGHTY NICE seeing a $50.xx pending credit when these shoes come. And MIGHTY SAD when most of it will go away when I have to return 5/6 pairs of shoes! I am so hoping at least one of them will be my 'Cinderella' shoe!

    Just had to share!!!!! Thank goodness for online stores that carry a variety of styles and sizes and have free shipping both ways. I never knew about Shoebuy before SR.

    I have a feeling that my daughter is going to end up in the same situation as you some day. She can wear my 9.5/10 now and she is only 11 years old! I went up about a size after I had my first child as well. That would easily put her in an 11 at some point.

    That's why I love Shoebuy I have had surgery on both of my feet so I can try on 4/5 pairs of shoes and only find one. I have order multiple pairs before and then hoped one would fit and the free returns is the best.

    Same here for going up a shoe size. I used to wear a 7.5 and now wear a 9.

    Both my dd's wear a 9. I don't understand, what size shoes are their dd's going to have.

    If it's any consolation, I was about the same size as Jillian at that age and fortunatley, that's where I stopped growing! I'm not planning on having kids though.... It crazy that I wear a 10 because my mom wears a 5 or 6 and shopped in the kids dept until she got married. My dad, grandma, and myself all wear the same shoe size!

    If I can find more than one pair that are a dreamy fit, I probably would keep both! But several of the shoes I ordered are the same shoe, just one in an 11 and one in a 12. And I have 47 pending now from shoebuy, LOL. At least one pair is also for my son, so that credit should stick. I saw a lady the other day at the UPS store and she seriously had about 8 boxes she was returning to zappos so that was part of my inspiration just to go for it and not feel 'weird' about doing so.

    Robin, I did that at Land End when trying to get a bathing suit. I bought 500.00 worth of suits and then returned the majority which didn't fit. The company later called me to ask how I was not pleased with their products. I told them I was extremely happy that I finally found my suit
