Shoe Review: b.o.c. by Born Lesa Clog

I found some black Born shoes on clearance in my size even for under $25 at Gordman's - Woot! They are not the Born Toby or Born Haddon that I originally pined for, but for a fraction of the regular price, I will settle with these b.o.c. by Born Lesa Clogs. Also available from DSW for $54.95 (regularly $80) in Brown and/or Red Patent. When I was trying them on at Gordman's, another customer warned me that they are horrible on ice and did not recommend them at all saying she owns a pair and … [Read more...]

Kim covets Born Toby & Born Haddon

I love my black Born shoes, but I want a new "updated" pair of casual black shoes. I was hoping my Uggleboo Swedish Clogs would take their place, but I have yet to get them to fit my foot right. So I now really, really, really want these Born Toby shoes... They retail for $95 (at ShoeMall, Planet Shoes and/or Zappos), so I've been keeping my eye out for them for less.

This day was no different as I scored these boc by Born Jamie Loafers for only $20 from Gordman's, after mark-downs and using a 20% off Gordmans printable coupon.   Considering these retail for $80 (currently $49.95 from DSW.com), how could I resist?! As you can see by my … [Read more...]

Earth Spirit Leather Sandals

I was proud of myself that I went to Sioux City shopping and did not buy one pair of shoes. Oh, I had some hot black heels in my cart at Gordman's, but thought do I really want to spend that much for a pair of shoes that I will probably never wear? Even though they perfectly match a little black velvet dress hanging in my closet that I will probably never wear either. But I resisted. Then I decided to run into Wal-mart to pick up a few things. Always have to make a sweep through the shoe … [Read more...]
