I have a horrible habit of buying shoes online. The latest fiasco involved the purchase of two pairs of Kenneth Coles online because they were having a great online sale. Note to self: it's never a great deal if you end up not wearing the shoes because they're uncomfortable. Stupidly, I tried the shoes on when they arrived, but didn't actually wear them and walk around a bit. That's what killed me. What I bought doesn't do so well when you're walking around the city all the time.

That's where comes in. And just like Vistaprint (here), there's a few reasons I like them. 1. They're headquartered in downtown Boston (on Arch Street). 2. Free return shipping. 3. My friend Teresa worked there for a number of years and she's awesome.

I've bought a couple pairs of sneakers from Shoebuy and I definitely had a better experience with them than I did with other online retailers. I haven't bought dress shoes from them yet, but I will probably give it a try the next time I need some.

    Dude, have you heard of They have free shipping both ways, and your way it's usually overnight. So normally you go to the website today, and get your shoes tomorrow. And they have customer service that's actually helpful.

    I have a vip account on Zappos with free overnight shipping. Sounds like a great deal until you look at their prices. I just made a purchase with shoebuy. I got a great deal on some sneakers, thirty dollars less than zappos. So, it did take some time for the shoes to get here, I ordered during the Christmas holidays. But I don't mind. The shoes were for me, and the savings made it worth it.
