Check out my new shoes!!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 


I was at our local mall and walked past my favourite shoe store - it's a huge place and always has anything I need for a good price. Turns out they're going out of business () so were having a huge sale.

These are Skechers brand, and I thought the mark down price on them was $39.99, and boots were 60% off, so about $15. I realised when I got to the register the mark down price was $69.99, and was about to walk away, but got her to double check, and she keyed in the number and said they're $9.99, and with 60% off they're $4.33.

Well there was no way I was walking away from $4 Skechers boots!

I should add they were the only black boots left, and they were my size! I'm guessing everyone else left them because the price said $69.99.

What a fabulous bargain! They were marked at that price so that everybody else would leave them for you

They're great, I love 'em. I'm jealous, I have a pair something like that, but the uppers are not as tall, and I paid like $50 for them

Now I just have to learn how to walk down the stairs in them without holding onto the railing with one hand, and the wall with the other...

We need a video!!!

Excellent buy. I can't wear heels that high, but I think for $4.00 I would have bought them anyway!

What an amazing price! Holy cow, you can't even buy used ones at the thrift store for that price!!
Well done.

Well I'm glad you guys like them. I just had afternooon tea with a "friend" (who has been getting on my nerves lately), and I told her how excited I was about them, and she pulled a face, and said "yeah, I noticed you were doing that weird Californian boots and 3/4 pants thing, what's with that". It's not a look I would normally do, but I wanted to wear my new boots, so I figured since it's supposedly fashionable, I would give it a go. Even if I didn't care for a particular fashion, if someone was excited about a new purchase, I would never say something like that, especially with such a sneer. Sigh.

I would never say anything either. She was being hurtful. I think your boots are beautiful. If they feel good wear them, with what ever you want

It was rude of her to say that.
They have boots real cheap here also because Show Pavillion is going out of business.
Everything is already picked over though.

I see two options here. 1) don't put your boots on until you get down the stairs or 2) learn to only hold on with one hand... one hand is smartly cautious... 2 screams "I'm going to fall on my arse"

She's just jealous! Probably because she didn't get any cool new shoes at a steal and because you make the "californian" style look good! BTW, that's not just a california trend... I happen to enjoy wearing that look and Im in the midwest.

$4!?!? Geesh, great find!!

They are cute!

I'm so jealous! I've been boot shopping for 2 weeks now with no luck I need boots that are low (no heel) slip on and are fashionable. All the ones I find are $100+

Oh good luck with that! I'm on a never-ending quest to find comfortable boots that have a low heel, don't look completely ugly, and are slip on or zip up. Yep, I'll get back to you when I find a pair for under $100 too!
post #28 of 28
For $4, you should have bought those boots regardless of size...they don't make ebay for nothing! Those are great boots, and congrats on the deal of the century!

That girl was just being a Debbie Downer. Enjoy your boots, and wear them with whatever you like!
