Got me some new kicks today:
My first time shopping for shoes online, after years of watching over Aprille’s shoulder. I went to a local store (a big box, not a local shopkeeper) and fitted myself for some Adidas. Size in hand, I went online to Zappo’s, and bought exactly the style I wanted (which they did not carry at the store I visited) in the size I needed. Two days, cheap(ish), with a liberal return policy. This is how to buy shoes.
For the interested: Adidas Originals Samba. Which is not to say the original Samba, which has a really long tongue you essentially have to fold over.
