Online Shoe Stores

Buying Online

It’s difficult to believe that in a world where most people actually like to try their shoes on before buying them, online shoe stores have become so popular.
The reasons why ‘s more than obvious, the wide variety (sizes, colors, styles), the price,
the opportunity to save yourself a trip to a “real” store and to make your purchase from
the comfort of your house.

However, sometimes it’s difficult to find a good online shoe store that offers a decent service and reasonable prices, that is why in this post we’ll list and analyze online shoes stores.

Why People buy Online?

Why are people buying shoes online? It’s easy, variety, price and convenience.

Some online stores offer the largest selection of shoes anywhere with 250 top brands of the most styles per brand, the broadest range of materials, colors, sizes, and widths, and with the most up to date fashions. Find shoes in sizes ranging from a women’s size 2 to a size 17 or a men’s size 1 to a size 20, with width’s running from extra narrow to extra wide.

In addition, you can find online discounts that provide savings of up to 65% off plus free shipping with live customer service and free returns. But if you still you don’t feel so sure about online shoes stores on some websites you can see what other customers think by checking out customer’s reviews and ratings on the thousands of shoes and accessories.

There are great savings every day online and with these great savings, you won’t be hit with any additional sales charges or fees with free shipping and free return shipping anywhere in the United States and you will receive your order within three to ten business days. Some sites offer first time customers an additional 10% off their purchase and the opportunity to save more on future purchases. Whether you’re a first time buyer or not you can review other customer’s ratings from the thousands of products across the website. Find out if a shoe runs a little wide or narrow from others who have bought the same item.

The choice is simple, with the advantages of purchasing without any sales tax, and enjoying great sales and discounts from your own home, secure purchasing, live customer service, and free shipping, you can see why everyone is shopping online.

Online Shoe Stores

1) Bakershoes.com

Sorry guys, this store its only for us women 🙂
I came across this store a week ago, and I really like it…
Bakers Shoes carries a lot of hot brand names, sort of stylish shoe variety, it also offers some really nice handbags.
The prices are reasonable, no free shipping ($6.95 standard shipping plus $2 for any additional item), the customer service is not a real help there’s only a toll free number for returns, so you have to assist yourself in this page, no live chat, however this it is an attractive site to visit.

2)  BuyAndWalk.com
This site it’s still a toddler giving the first steps compared with some of the giants online shoe stores.
I think they’ve been around for over a year now, and they have made some changes like changing the page
resolution from 800×600 to 1280×124, and adding some features to  accomplish an easier shopping experience.

I’m a regular customer from this site since I buy most of my Converse shoes from here (trust me I do buy a looooot of shoes), since they have a lot of Converse styles to pick from and I get special discount for being a regular.
This site offers free shipping, free shipping return and no sales tax, you can order online or by phone.
The customer service is really good, the people there are sincerely willing to help both by phone or by live chat.
The site is quite easy to use as well as the return and exchange process, great prices, not a huge selection of brands but if what your looking for are sneakers both for women, children and men I strongly recommend you this site.

3) DSW.com

This site has been around since Spring 2008 when it was it launched, I actually haven’t had the opportunity to buy shoes but I’ll try it as soon as I can.
The site its OK, not really sure about the black background thought, I know that it’s to add a sophisticated touch but it makes me feel unease while I navigate the site.
A large variety of brands and styles are available for women and men, prices are OK, no free shipping ( $7.95 standard shipping 7-10 business days), no free shipping return ( the shipping return fee will be deducted from your refund), returns and exchanges may take up to 14 days.
Overall it’s a good site but despite the variety of shoes there are better sites that offer free shipping & free shipping return, not one of my favorites but it has some very nice shoes.

4) Ebay.com

I’m sure everyone have at least visited ebay.com at least once, but I have to admit that having so much brands and styles sometimes makes it to difficult to find what you want, that is why I prefer small online shoe stores.
The site is really nice and cozy, its easy to navigate, it provides Live chat but its quite slow (I had to wait like 5 minutes for a customer service representative), free shipping depends on the seller since ebay its not involved with the shipping and returns.
Overall its a recommendable site.

5)  Endless.com

In case you’ve been living under ground Endless.com belongs to Amazon.com, so its different to visit a site
knowing that was created by a giant as Amazon.com.  Hands down to Endless.com, it offers free overnight shipping, free return, 365 day return and 100% price guaranteed.
Wide selection of brands and styles, from dress shoes to athletic shoes, products available for women, men and kids.
Prices are reasonable, depending on the kind of shoe your interested in. It’s an attractive site, and has a lot of features that are quite helpful, such as search by color, price, size and more.
If am not mistaken Endless.com has been around since 2006 but despite its short years of existence it has the backup of one of my favorite sites.
In the end this site its highly recommendable.

6) OnlineShoes.com
Here’s another online store that has a lot of brands and styles to choose from, available for women, kids and men.
Its a friendly and easy to navigate site, with the toll free number right above in case you need help (not like some other that practically hide the phone number!), it offers free shipping, free 90 days return.
Prices are…OK, but some shoes cost for example 20 dollars more than other sites.
Overall its an interesting site to visit.

7) ShoeBuy.com

Shoebuy.com offers free shipping, free shipping return no sales taxes and 100% price guaranteed.
There is a wide selection of brands (over 650) and styles, for women men and kids.
The site is quite easy to use, unlike other sites they manage to distribute the 650 brands to make the navigation easier; toll free number.
Overall, its a good site but sometimes I find the prices a little bit to expensive.
