Buying shoes online seems crazy, but both shoebuy.com and nordstrom.com have the great idea that you can exchange shoes for free if you don’t have the right size.
Nordstroms is even better in that you can take the shoes in and return them in a real store. Also, the nordstrom.com site has a much bigger inventory than going to a retail store. We got Alex his favorite pair of shoes that we couldn’t find at the store.
If you know exactly the brand that you want, then you can use “shoebuy.com”:http://shoebuy.com. Make sure to use the coupons at Shoebuy Promotion Codes as they regularly have 10-20% off if you use these codes. Otherwise it is normally list price.
