For a while there, I was wearing work shoes that I was NOT proud of.
Work shoes are kind of a pain for me to have to get. I don’t want to pay a lot for shoes because, well, they’re shoes, and I don’t want to pay a little for shoes because I have to look nice because if you’re going to charge people thousands of dollars to talk you’d better have a pair of nice-looking shoes.
(That’s what they teach you in law school.)
Anyway, I bought this pair of black shoes recently at some crummy store and almost instantly regretted it. They were kind of ill-fitting and then the sole cracked so if it was wet my feet would get wet and they looked shabby and I was embarrassed to be seen in them. Not so embarrassed that I didn’t charge people thousands of dollars, but still…
And, I need more than one pair of work shoes because apparently if your outfit is predominantly brown you have to wear brown shoes and if it’s mostly blue or black you wear black shoes and if it’s gray and you have a green shirt on, well, then everyone’s going to talk.
You get the point. Right now, I’ve got just the one pair of work shoes, but I may have found a solution, because Famous Footwear is having their back-to-school sale. And that’s the kind of thing I need: Buy-one-get-one pairs of shoes, 15% off on all shoes (20% if I join their Rewards club and get points for every purchase and qualify for up to $100 a year in discounts and stuff) and if they don’t have the exact shoes I want, I can get them delivered to me at home.
Even better: Famous Footwear’s so easy to shop at that in 20 minutes I can get three pairs of shoes, so I don’t lose billable hours. OR BETTER: I can shop at www.famous.com, and have the shoes delivered to the store near me and save even MORE time.
So goodbye bad shoes that don’t fit and look terrible, and hello shoes that match whatever outfit I’m wearing, even the one with the red shirt!
Oh, and they’ll give me a coupon to help me save money: BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon So there’s that, too!
