Ordering Women's Shoes on Amazon

by BrendaReeves

If you're looking for a new pair of shoes, you've come to the right place. You have every style at your disposal on Amazon.

It's time to kick off those winter boots and put on those dancing shoes. Nothing makes a woman feel more sexy or more comfortable than a beautiful pair of shoes. Women's shoes come in classic unadorned styles to flashy rhinestone studded to metallic shines, elevator high heels and canvas on the go. The well dressed woman owns a pair for every occasion. A girl can never own too many shoes, as the saying goes.

Ordering Shoes on the Internet

There's a Science to It.

If you're anything like me, traipsing around a shopping mall isn't your favorite sport. It also depends on your age. As a teenager and young woman, looking at all the clothes in every shop at the mall rated up there with a day at the beach.

Fast forward and trying on dozens of clothes is pure agony for me. I'd rather buy things off the rack and return them. Better yet, I'd rather shop online and let the post office return them. When shopping for shoes on the Internet, keep a few things in mind:

  • You might experience trouble getting your correct size.
  • You'll get better at it.
  • Read the reviews
  • You might need to return the shoes for various reasons
  • Never pay for return shipping.

Read the Reviews Carefully

Pay Attention to What They Say

I read several reviews on Amazon. While perusing the reviews, here's what I saw quite often:

  • These are the most uncomfortable shoes I've ever worn.
  • They hurt my bunion
  • They're not wide enough for my feet.
  • They hurt the corns on my toes
  • They run large
  • They run small

These comments are followed by a bad review and one or two stars. Ladies, that's unfair. Everybody's feet are different. If you have bunions, corns, or your feet are unusually wide or narrow, certain shoes are not for you. You need a specialty shoe store. You might even need a podiatrist. Ballet flats and five-inch heels aren't made for comfort. They're made to look cute. Many women, myself included, love ballet flats, because they're the closest thing to going barefoot next to flip flops. I hate to wear shoes. Do you think women who wear five-inch heels do so because they're comfortable? No, they wear them because they're beautiful and make them feel beautiful and sexy.

Therefore, pay attention to what the reviews are saying.

 

What To Do When You Want to Return Shoes

Return Them

Maybe the shoes that came in the mail don't fit right; maybe you don't like the way they look on your feet; maybe the shoes are too big or too small, or maybe you decided you shouldn't have spent the money in the first place. Amazon has a full refund policy. The following return policy is pulled directly from their site:

  • Items must be in new condition
  • Items must be returned with all original packaging and accessories
  • Media items (for example, movies, music, video games, and software) must be unopened and still in their plastic wrap
  • Musical instruments, televisions, and consumer electronics must have a UPC or serial number
  • Shoes and clothing must be unworn

You can also exchange the shoes for something different, so you have nothing to loose by shopping at Amazon for shoes.

I've been pretty lucky. I've only had to return one pair, and that's because I didn't heed the reviews. I had to find out for myself.

I don't think I'd ever take the chance of buying a shoe I'm not familiar with on the Internet. But once I know my size, like PeggyHazelwood, I would go for it. Great advice here.

I've been pretty lucky with ordering shoes online. I hate to go shopping. I love the Internet.

I have to try shoes on because I have weird feet. But I recently bought some Keen's and would order another pair online now that I know my size.

I'm not a mall/clothes shopper at all! Unlike most women, shopping is not one of my favorite things to do, so I like ordering online. I've never bought shoes online though. Thanks for another good article!

Thank you Mira. Yes, it is.

Good advice, Brenda! Reading reviews when buying shoes is essential, especially since the size may vary from what it says.
