Shoe shopping is one of those things I dread. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a girl, I love shoes! I just don’t like it when I have to find a pair. Any other day of the week I can find 10 pairs I’d love to own but not when I’m actually looking.
Saturday, I spent 2+ hours searching for the perfect tennis shoe. (This was at least my 3rd search!) I assure you - it doesn’t exist. 20 pairs later, a splitting headache, and a tired husband, I decided that the pair I had bought at the first store was the best of all that I had tried.
You may wonder why we continued the search; basically, the cost. Have you looked at tennies lately? They are so expensive. It had been at least 2 years since I had bought a pair and it was painful to shell out the money for these.
I did some consumer research and asked several people what brand, type, etc. they like best. It helped some, but really, every foot is so different. The salesman in one store was just plain fed up with me. He kept offering (no forcing) a variety of shoes and every single pair I rejected. He finally walked away, shaking his head in disgust, I’m sure.
Hopefully, these will last another couple of years. I’m not interested in buying another pair any time soon!
