Why didn't you just say... "we don't make that in girl"

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I went to a shoe search engine and typed in EXACTLY what I wanted. Waterproof hiking boots that are in a sneaker style. What pops up? A shiny pink metallic flat with a bow.

It seems that the search engine couldn't give me what I wanted so it attempted to distract me with something totally different.

I got a pair of North Face hiking shoes in a sneaker style which I'm pretty sure were waterproof (I'm sure that's why I bought them...) from REI on special. They're REALLY comfy.

Imagine if you got lost. All you would have to do is reflect your metallic flats against the sun and the rescue team will find you!

You could even practice S.O.S. at home before you go out.

I've always worn men's boots. Luckily my size can sometimes be found in store (men US 7).

I like how you said "So it attempted to distract me with something else" Too funny!!!

You know, sometimes I think that's really what they are doing. If they can't find it they show you something else, instead of tell you, and hope you will want to buy those or think of something else to look for.

There was a comedian on tv the other day and he made me laugh so hard. He said " Google, at least let her type in 3 letters before you jump to conclusions!" It was about an x-rate topic and his girlfriend was using his computer, but it goes for anything. I thought it was a kill!

The better option really, they're usually wider too. Unfortunately, the ones I always want end up not going any smaller than 7.5. I've also noticed in some brands, particularly boots, that the mens and womens are often the exact same shoe with a different label slapped on it.

Try bigger online shoe stores, like shoebuy or zappos. You can easily narrow down shoe style by brand and type.

I think zappos is worth paying a few dollars more too, you can have your shoes the very next day.
