So, husband has extremely wide feet. Size 10 EEEE. He's not the easiest person to buy shoes for. When we were in the Pac NW we'd always go to the Nordstrom Rack, because they had a good selection of wide shoes at reasonable prices. Both his work shoes and his tenny's have been pretty worn down, so last weekend we found the Rack here, and did find some work shoes for him. But their selection of tennis shoes was pretty small and we didn't find anything. So, next day, I got online and found essentially the same sneakers as he has, same size, color, and style, at Sears for $43. Then I dug around a bit and and found a "free Shipping" coupon and a "15% off" coupon, and ended up getting them delivered to the house for $37 and change. They came yesterday. He tried them on, said they looked and felt great, got out of his work duds and put on his old tenny's. Ugh! So, I asked him about it and got the answer that I knew that I would. "They're too nice to ruin, I'm saving them." OK, this is the man who didn't blink an eye (although I about had apoplexy) when he bought himself 4 polo shirts that cost $150 last weekend at Nordstrom. I think he's wearing them. If I had bought them they'd sit on a hanger until I made him put them on. What is this with the "I don't want to ruin them" thing? They're shoes! The general idea is that you're going to walk on them and get them scuffed up. They were $37 for crying out loud! Am I the only one who has this problem with her husband? I'd wear new shoes out of the store, for crying out loud!
