The Spoils: Zappos.com

When I walked into my podiatry appointment last Monday, my doctor gave me the WTF face, because he noticed that I was wearing this 4" wedge on my left foot. Even as I put the shoe on that morning, I knew that it was probably not the brightest idea. Sometimes vanity gets the better of me, which is surprising, I know. You've seen the way that I show my face in public.

Anyway, he very delicately suggested that I invest in more practical shoes while I'm on crutches, and since he was right to suggest as much, I thought back to the most comfortable shoes that I've worn in my life. In high school, I had these bright-ass Saucony sneakers that I remember wearing with blue jeans skirts and the like.

Just as I was about to add them to my cart, I recalled that I always felt that the sole was a little thicker than I would prefer. Thankfully, Zappos also carries the Jazz Low Pro, which has a thinner sole. So, I added the green/navy babies to my cart and checked out!

If you don't know, GUESS WHAT. Zappos offers FREE SHIPPING on all purchases (and returns!), which is amazing. Honestly. AMAZING. That, in and of itself, is a huge selling point. But do you know what Zappos did after I placed my order? They emailed me to let me know that they were upgrading the shipping method on my order - sweet! Totally unexpected and absolutely appreciated, because I'm an instant gratification type of girl.

To my surprise, I had my beloved shoes the NEXT DAY, because Zappos had overnighted my order. Did I already say that they are amazing? Amazing, people. Don't believe me? Ask Kate. Preach it, girl!

Cute shoes! I've never ordered from Zappos. I promise will try them after I end my relationship with the crap that is ShoeDazzle.
