Sole searching at Browns

After much complaining about my misadventures in shoe shopping, I actually found two fabulous pairs at great prices at Browns. Well I actually found three pairs but with a bit of a hassle, I was able to return the first pair at another store within 20 minutes after I bought them.

Back to Browns. So I bought a pair of sandals at another store out of fear I wouldn't find a pair of comfortable black sandals. I really wanted a pair with just the right combo of fashion, fit and function. I ended up settling for fit and function. But I didn't stop there.

I ventured over to Browns. They are having an amazing sale - up to 70% off with 25% off the purchase of any and every additional sale item! They are also the only store with racks of shoes in all sizes, so I had lots to choose from. At first, nothing I tried fit properly.

Then I discovered a great pair of Camper sandals on another rack and they were almost half price. They were with shoes in a different size but since I had nothing to lose, I went ahead and tried it on. It fit! Talk about a Cinderella moment. ; ) I looked at the bottom and saw it actually was my regular size but had been misplaced. And with an additional 25% off any other sale items, I thought I'd better find another pair.

I found a cool pair of Puma leather walking shoes at 70% off. Add another 25% off and those babies originally priced at $180 were mine for a mere $38 plus tax. Score!

Good news you can use:
This sale is online too and includes free shipping for a limited time.
I found they still have lots of designer brands in stock at good prices (sometimes lower than some of their competitors).
As for their return policy: 15 days full-refund for unworn shoes w/bill; after that they will give you an exchange or credit.

    Hi, I was just wondering if the extra 25% off was an in-store promotion only.


  2. I think it was and in-store promotion but they still have free shipping online. The online and in-store promos probably amount to almost the same savings. Let us know what you find.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Thanks for getting back to me. I'm going to go to the nearest Browns (which isn't even a real Browns - it's the ones in the Bay) and see what they have there. If all else fails, I'll order online. Thanks for the heads up on the sale!
