Mystery Shopping Score: Under Armour Slides

Kim wearing UA Slides

Once in a while I'll do a mystery shopping gig where I review certain stores.  Usually I pick ones that I can benefit from, like free oil changes for my car, but when I saw the opportunity to shop for shoes AND get paid for it, I immediately signed up.  Now I can't divulge the store that I shopped at, as then it wouldn't be a mystery, but I can show off the shoes that I bought.  Obviously it wasn't a shoe store, just a store with a shoe department. And my budget wasn't that big, thus I was a … [Read more...]

Wayne’s Shoe Collection: Part 2 (Slides)

D&G Denim Slides

This is a second post in a series that showcases the formerly shoe-obsessed Wayne's shoe collection. Commentary by Wayne himself: All these bought at Neiman Marcus in Atlanta back in 2000 (when I was last getting paid on the 1st and the 15th) and rarely worn since. A pair of D&G denim patchwork slides: One pair of D&G brown patchwork leather slides: And a Bonus: Back in 2000 (when I really had spending money), I bought a pair of Hermes wooden slides for $350; I thought I'd … [Read more...]

Kim’s Shoe Review: Lindsay Phillips Jordi Flip Flops Snaps Shoes

Even though I claim to not be a flip-flop fan, I find myself wearing the toe separators more and more often. And when I had the chance to test out the cool looking Lindsay Phillips Snap Shoes in my favorite color (pink) with bling, I wasn't going to decline the offer! Lindsay Phillips Jordi Flops only come in whole shoe sizes, so since I'm a 7 1/2, I tested out both a size 7 (in the pink) and a size 8 (in the yellow).   I felt the size 7 fit better. In fact, the size 8 felt the exact same … [Read more...]

Shoe Review: Oakley Treaty Slides

Oakley is my favorite brand of sunglasses, probably because my great-grandfather's name was Oakley (I'm now wishing I would have named my son Oakley, but anyhoo...). Did you know that Oakley also makes footwear, too? Mind you, they are just flip-flops and not designer sandals or pumps, but it was news to me! Pictured above is the Oakley Treaty Slide for women in the color Chocolate, available from Shoe Buy for $35 with free shipping. Endless.com also carries the same style (and same price), … [Read more...]

Slide into some Nike slides

I was shopping at ShopKo last week, and just couldn't resist these Nike  Slides that were on sale for $14.99.   They only come in full sizes, and since I'm a size 7 1/2, I first opted for the size 8, but that was too big/loose.   The size 7 fits perfectly. I've been  wanting a new pair of athletic slides to replace my Adidas slides that I ruined while painting. Now today I see these exact same Nike Benassi Women's Slides are on sale for only $9.99 from Sports Authority! Regularly $18.99.   … [Read more...]
