Yes, but only after being to the shop to try on the shoes, found the right size and noted the style. The specials were on-line, but not in the shop.
Except for that one-ff instance, buying clothing/shoes on-line has never worked for me - nothing fits, the fabric is horrible, usually buttons don't do up, and if in a shop, I would not have considered purchase. The returns have cost a small fortune to send, after having carted them to a Post Office (few & far between), then I've had to fight for refunds. Sometimes the company demands getting Authorisation numbers and sending by Registered Mail - only to declare they bever received the returns. So no refunds, out of pocket for large mail costs and no items either. Buy local - it's safer & usually cheaper.
I have bought shoes online 4 times. 3 pairs fit perfectly, the fourth didn't. It's a gamble so I wouldn't do it if the cost more than $5-$10, unless it's a brand I know well like Doc Martens (I bought a pair that were exactly the same as my old ones).
I would never buy shoes online. I have tiny feet and I would definitely want to try them on first. Oh wait. I lie. I did buy a pair of crocs thongs online, and whilst they did fit, they aren't very comfortable. I doubt I would have bought them had I been able to try them on first.
No, I don't buy footwear online. I like to see and feel the quality and try on, I have wide feet so fashion shoes are a bad fit on me and low cut shoes are uncomfortable. I enjoy looking around anyway and I mostly buy sale items. I wear my shoes for many years so don't mind getting good well made and good quality.
First time = disaster & had to return them. That was trouble as the store gave me big hassles. Second time, I had already tried on the shoes in store then waited til they were on SALE on their website to buy them. That worked out to my gleeful benefit. But I will not do it again, too much hassle.
No, I never have bought shoes online, but our youngest daughter, has a few times, & they've mostly fitted. She bought 1 pr, & wore them so much that when they started to wear out, after having them repaired a few times, she bought an identical pair, but new of cause! They're blue flats not 1 you'd see usually, & they went really well with her retro look & the dresses she wears.
