This Thankful Thursday, I am thankful for internet shopping!
I have been in search for cleated/track soled chelsea boots for oh so long. I almost found a pair however the sole just wasn’t right, so I gave up looking in stores and took to searching online.
Fast forward to another week of searching later I finally came across the website that I now feel has been missing all my life! – Shoebou.com
According to their website, ShoeBou are quoted saying
“Shoebou is one of the UK’s fastest growing online retailers of women’s fashion shoes at affordable prices. Shoebou provide a wide selection of catwalk inspired and trend led shoes, heels, flats, sandals, wedges and boots with ranges constantly updated. We also recognise that the key to our success will be a happy and satisfied customer. That is why great customer service is at the heart of all that we do at Shoebou.

As such we aim to offer, great choice, amazing value and outstanding customer service to make that line a reality for as many of our customers as we can.”
That’s some pretty big talk for a newbie in the online retailing industry! I was definitely curious to see what they had to offer. Also considering they were the only place on the whole world wide web to have the exact shoes that I wanted, I had given myself no choice but to give them a go.
Now, as much as I hate to admit it, I will come right out and say I have ridiculously wide feet. It’s a royal pain and it makes shopping online for shoes a million times more difficult than it is for the average person.
I decided to use twitter and see if ShoeBou would be able to help me with my query of whether these boots ran slightly on the large side. I was delighted to find that they responded to me really quickly. The team at Shoebou reassured me that if they didn’t fit, they offered free returns. Satisfied with their answer, I typed in all my details on the website and hoped for the best.
The very next day(!) I received my parcel of happiness in a box. The packaging was slightly damaged but at this speed of delivery, who really cares. The shoes were intact and that’s what matter. The shoes fit perfectly and I cannot wait to wear them this weekend! I would definitely consider using them again; I mean, if the shoe fits…!
Have you ever used shoebou.com? What do you think of my shoes? What’s on your wishlist? Do you have wide feet like me?
