    I have been looking for the perfect walking shoe. I found it at New Balance, but the price online was $104. So, I checked out my local New Balance store and the price was $94. So, I did a little research online and found my shoe at the everyday low price of $79 on ShoeBuy.com which made me pretty happy, but not joyous. They offer free shipping and no sales tax. They have a great return policy too. The first purchase gets you a 10% discount, which is not bad, but they emailed me with a code for a flat $10 off my next purchase before I even bought anything. So, I figured that was a pretty good deal....better than the 10% would be. So, I made the purchase tonight. When I checked out, they added the extra 10% off on top of the $10 flat discount from the code. So, I got my $104 shoes for only $62.50! I am so happy.....my feet are going to be so happy. Those 925 New Balance shoes make it almost feel like you are getting a foot massage with every step. I will have them just in time for breaking in well before our December trip. Oh, and I almost forgot another great part.....I got 4 MyPoints points for every dollar! So, I am a little bit closer to my next gas card for the trip. :Pinkbounc I love a good deal. Maggie

    Ok, as with any new online purchasing experience, I get a little freaked, but as promised here on day 5, they shipped the shoes. I have a tracking number. I can't wait to get my feet into those wonderful new shoes! :banana: Time to warm up the feet for some Disney touring. Maggie

    I have had great experiences with shoebuy.com. I love the free shipping AND especially love the free return shipping if the shoes don't work out. Having a narrow foot, makes buying shoes difficult, but shoebuy.com and zappos.com have a nice selection of narrow styles. :earsgirl:

    I have been very happy with my shoebuy.com purchases. My problem is wide feet. Most stores that carry very wide shoes are very spendy. I love the fact I don't have to pay for shipping and I can return them if they aren't right for me.

    I have a 9 4E foot. Needless to say, I have a dickens of a time finding a good fitting shoe. I went to the local New Balance store to try on the shoes that I ended up purchasing from ShoeBuy.com and they feel like a foot massage with every step. I think it's about as comfortable as being barefoot.....and I have never said that about a shoe. The New Balance 925 is my new favorite shoe.

    I tracked the package and it's stilling all of 20 miles from my home at the UPS distribution center. I want to drive over there and rummage through the warehouse for them soooooo badly right now. I can wait.....really.....
