Spring is FINALLY here. Now we just have to shake off the bitter cold and start getting warmer temperatures. I’m so ready to wear capris and sandals. I’m tired of having to cover myself up from my head down to my toes.
My kids are already making their lists of what they need for the warmer weather – short sleeve shirts, shorts and new shoes. Our son legitimately needs new shoes. Our daughter on the other hand doesn’t “need” new shoes – she WANTS new shoes. She loves shoes. I know many women who are the same way. I am not a “shoe person”, per say, but I do enjoy getting new shoes and wearing new styles.
When you have a family it can be a chore to bounce around to the different shoe stores trying to get the right pair of shoes for each family member. Especially when you have people in your family who are fans of particular brands and designers. What you need is one store where you can find all the popular brands, and brands you might not have heard of before. That way you can do all your shoe shopping in one place at one time.
Since I am a fan of shopping online (I don’t like going to the mall) I can appreciate sites like Shoebuy.com. Shoebuy.com has it all – from icy pastels to chic, neutral pumps to cutout sandals and colorful loafers.
Shoebuy.com provides over 1 million products from 1,250 well-known manufacturers including Franco Sarto, New Balance, Patagonia, PUMA, Rockport, Sperry Top-Sider, Stride Rite, Stuart Weitzman, and Timberland. You’re bound to find the perfect style and size to fit your lifestyle.
I had the opportunity to do a little shopping on Shoebuy.com. Since I needed new shoes for an upcoming press trip, and I wanted to replace my worn out sneakers with something more appropriate for spring time, I was more than happy to do a review.
There are so many shoes to choose from that it’s hard to narrow it down. Every kind of shoe you can image can be found on Shoebuy.com, not to mention the vast variety of colors, patterns and styles. It’s as if I died and went to “shoe heaven”. LOL!
In addition to the impressive number of shoes that are available, Shoebuy.com also has just about every imaginable shoe size. In women’s for example you can find shoes from size 4 to size 15. Wow! I didn’t even know that there were women’s shoes in size 15. Men’s sizes run from size 5 to size 18. Different widths are also available for most shoes – from extra narrow to extra wide and everything in between (for men’s and women’s shoes).
Shoebuy.com makes it easy to find what you are looking for. You can search for shoes by style, size, width and even color. That means if you are a women’s size 8, regular width, and you need purple shoes to match a dress you can search specifically for that size, width and color.
By the way they have many dressy shoes in size 8, regular width and in purple.
I wasn’t 100% sure what I was looking for so I just scrolled around the various sections. I knew I wanted something casual and something that would work well in the spring, summer and maybe even fall.
I am fond of the brand Aerosoles so I did a search on Shoebuy.com for Aerosoles women’s shoes in my size and width. In the casual, slip on shoe section alone I found 90 shoes to choose from in my size, width and brand.
I chose a pair of Aerosoles 4 Give slip on sandals in “bone” color (Aerosoles have unique shoe names). I had a similar pair of shoes years ago and found them to be very comfortable. I don’t like my toes to be seen (I’m embarrassed by my toes) so shoes like this allow my feet to get some fresh air during the warm weather months while still covering up my toes.
I had money left over on a gift card so I chose to get a second pair – one I could wear now since it’s not yet warm enough for sandals. I wanted something in a neutral color that would go well with dress pants, jeans, capris or shorts.
I went with Aerosoles Solitaire in linen fabric. These are simple and easy shoes that slip on and slip off.
These shoes are available in a variety of colors and patterns. I opted for linen because I felt like it would match just about anything I wear since it’s a neutral color.
I love that Shoebuy.com offers so many options. It makes it easy to find the perfect shoe. Below are examples of the other Aerosoles Solitaire shoes that are available. Same shoe. Same size. Same width.
Shoebuy.com also has shoes for children. My kids wear adults sizes now. I wish I knew of Shoebuy.com when they were little. It would have saved me a lot of running around to buy new shoes. They outgrew their shoes so quickly, especially my son. As soon as I bought him a pair he would out grow them a month or two later. I didn’t have time to drop everything to go shoe shopping at the mall.
My son especially loved certain shoes. With Shoebuy.com I could have purchased his favorite shoes in larger sizes as he grew. That way he had his favorite shoes that fit him perfectly at all times.
In addition to shoes, Shoebuy.com also carries clothing, bags, belts, eyewear, jewelry, wallets and so much more. They ship rather quickly too. I was impressed by how quickly my shoes arrived, especially for FREE shipping. They also don’t charge sales tax which saves money too. In addition they have FREE returns and they offer a 100% price guarantee.
