Boot Drama

I'm beginning to think the fates are working against me.
I walked into DSW today brandishing my shiny gift card and tingling with the excitement of a boot purchase. I tried on several pairs. They hurt my feet. Other ones that I liked weren't in my size. I have to say, the selection of boots was really picked over. The sales guy said to me that "boot season" was over. Over? I see people wearing boots all year round. What the heck is he talking about? He did suggest that I look online as the selection is better.
I'm a little leery of buying shoes online. I have to try them on before I buy them. What if they don't fit right or hurt my feet.
Has anyone bought shoes online?
Did you have a good experience?

I wouldn't buy shoes or boots on-line cause I'm like you, I need to try them on first. Have you tried Carson's? I know they can be pricy but I have always found a good selection and they are all on sale, especially with the extra coupon out of the paper. Oh, another place you could try is Marshall's in Valpo.

Marshall's had those great Ugg boots you liked and they were only $29....I know that defeats the purpose of the DSW gift card, but hey, you have a birthday coming, so I'd go try them on with your mother in tow, she'll buy em I bet.
:) I know her, she's swell like that.

I think as long as you can return them why not give it a shot.
