i ordered two pairs of running shoes. from zappos. they're gorgeous folks with free shipping both ways. it's wonderful because you can try on anything and send it back and it's completely free. and also you can write them and tell them the shoes are cheaper at puma.com and they'll give you 110% of the difference back. lovely.
so i chose two pairs of pumas, neither of which are sold in stores around here. there were some asics that looked good too, but i can try those on and cough up the cash right up front. so we'll see. i heart shopping.
