Shoe Saga Continued

Filed Under Blog, Burning Man, Fashion

I went to Experience Shoes in downtown Seattle today to pick up a pair of Doc Martens. I found some perfect mid-height 10-hole boots in black. I had to try on several pair to find the right size - size 5, since they’re sized differently than other shoes. They don’t have many in stock. After trying some on and saying “Sweet, these are pretty much what I’m looking for!” the guy went to the back room to grab some that were boxed up for me, I bought the shoes, and was thrilled that it was so easy.

I was wrong.

When I got home, I put my boots on to go break them in, walk around some, that kind of thing. And they fit REALLY loosely. I was totally puzzled - I’d just tried some identical boots on! And I looked at the box. I looked at the shoes. And I realized… They gave me the wrong box. They gave me a size 6. Well, damn it! Now I have to go BACK tomorrow, hope they still have a size 5 in stock, and trade them in. Assuming they will LET me trade them in.

Christ. Is it too much to ask that things be easy once in a while?

*sigh*
