I absolutely love the look of this classic style shoe. Ordinarily I wear this sneaker style and will usually purchase a name brand like Chuck Taylor or Airwalk, but this time I deviated a little from the norm. I needed a pair of red sneakers for a Halloween costume, and I just couldn't find them anywhere on the Big Island of Hawaii.I tried ordering a pair of Chucks to have them delivered to my local Target store, but that wasn't available to me. I tried shopping at the local Famous Footwear – they had the right color, but not the right size. With a limited amount of time, I desperately turned to Amazon.Shipping to the Big Island can be quite an expense, and though I will definitely wear these shoes as part of my regular wardrobe, I couldn't justify the expense for something I didn't absolutely consider a “necessary” addition to my closet. Halloween costuming aside, I'm still a practical and frugal girl.
That's why I was so happy to find the look and style of a classic Chuck Taylor sneaker, at a dramatically lower price because of its generic manufacturer. Between the price of the shoe and the cost of shipping, I still paid less than if I had purchased these shoes at Payless Shoe Source.
