Buying Shoes Online - The Benefits

read ( words)

I love to buy shoes but I hate to shop for them.

Driving and walking from store to store can be exhausting. In fact, most neighborhood shoe stores carry limited styles, fashions and sizes, so I often come home tired, discouraged and empty handed.

So it's no wonder that the internet has become my choice for shoe shopping. Try finding a size 10, double narrow pink pump with a 2 inch heel at your local shoe store. You may have to shop around awhile.

On the other hand, a few keystrokes on your computer will find your desired item and find you the best price. And, of course, it so much easier to let my fingers do the shopping than my poor tired feet.

Shoes may not be something you would consider buying online as most people like to 'try on' their shoes, and yes, that's a big benefit to shopping in stores, but online shoe stores have worked hard to make your shoe shopping experience as easy and pleasant as possible.

Here's some of the benefits:

Free Shipping and Free Returns
Your shoes are delivered free and if you don't like them, they take them back free. This is a big incentive that many online shoe stores offer. You get your shoes in 3-5 days, try them on at home. If you don't like them or they don't fit, you send them back free of charge. They even supply the labels.

Better Pricing
Prices are often better online as well. What I find the most appealing is that the internet provides a forum for shopping around. If you find a pair of shoes you like, make a note of the brand and style and shop around at other online stores. In the time it takes to drive to your local shoe store you can shop for a wardrobe of shoes and have them delivered to your door in just a few days.

110% price protection
Many online shoes stores offer price protection which means if you find a shoe for a lower price on another web site or in a shoe store, they will refund you 110% of the difference between the lower price and our price. Definitely something to look for when you shop.

You have 365 days to return your shoes
No hurry, if you can 't get out to return your shoes right away, you have a whole year to send them back.

Not all online shoe stores offer these exceptional shoe buying benefits, however more and more of them are jumping on board.

So, if you're like me and you love to buy new shoes, but hate the walking, check out shopping for them online. It could be one of the best shoe buying experiences you'll ever have.
