Have you brought shoes on line. I get ads that show shoes at a very big discount. But I wonder how that works out? Do you go to the shoe store and try on the shoes then come home and shop on line? Or do you just buy a brand that you have brought before? What about size? Can you return them easily? All you on line shoppers help, please.

I have and I've mostly been OK, but I'd rather go to a store and try them on. It's a pain (to me) to have to return something in the mail even if the shipper has provided a return label. I still have to get a box (or bag) and go to the post office. I'd rather go and get something and be sure of it and be done with it.

I have mostly felt that way, but the difference in costs is starting to motivate me to buy more one line. Thanks

Hey pat! I just recently tried for the very first time and actually bought a pair of navy blue mid calf leather boots from JC Penny online! And thank God they fit perfectly! I love them so much I bought another pair in the exact boot, same color because finding a navy blue boot is next to impossible and they were so damn comfortable I couldn't resist! They were $59.99 with free shipping so I was in heaven! Now I can wear them over pants, and with boot cut jeans and still have a spare if I mess up one pair! I know it sounds crazy, but if you know how many stores I went to just to find navy blue boots you'd understand! I took a big chance buying them online, but it just happened to work out! And I just bought two sweaters online again from JC Penney, got them today, again free shipping (FEDEX) and they fit too! I am so happy!

I actually just bought shoes online for my dad for Christmas. They just arrived the other day. I bought them from a company that I know he's ordered pants from before. I have never bought shoes online for myself though. I need to try them on in person.

okay i order my stuff from amiclubwear and I love it. The shoes are already cheap and I can wear them with no issues and return them if I dotn like them. The shipping is really fast bc I live in ga and they're located in fl. I hate traffic and I am picky about who I give my card number to and I call the numbers for customer support to see if they will answer the phone and my questions with great details. I am a great discount shopper and anyone can look good for cheap! lol

I have ordered shoes online and done fine...but my trick is to stay with brands I know are sized right for my feet, ones I've worn before and liked.

I try to avoid buying certain things online. For example.. dresses, as i can fit into a size 8-10 dress where as normally i wear a size 12 t-shirt etc. Shoes for example... they have to be fairly comfortable the first time i wear them.. baring in mind that some shoes need wearing in, So shoes i DON'T buy online. Though i would consider certain types of shoes i already wear etc. Like Van's. Because sometimes you can only get designs that you like online compared to in-store.

Hi, Pat! I've often bought shoes on line, and I've never been disappointed. Once, they sent the wrong size, so I returned them with their return sticker, so there was no charge for that, and they immediately sent the right size and a coupon for $10 off the next order to apologizxe! Good luck with yours!

My last pair of shoes (Geox trainers) I bought online without having tried them before as they don't seem to be available in shops near me. I knew whatshoe size I was so didn't think there would be a problem. I don't regret it for a moment as they are the best trainers I have ever bought.

I have bought trainers online. I am quite fussy when it comes to footwear I will only wear Nike as they are the most comfortable and look the nicest! I will buy them online from the place I find them cheapest as I need to be frugal! I still am wearing a pair from 2 and a half years ago so I do make them last! They can normally be returned easily and most companies pay for the postage to be sent back to them!
