Several years ago I started seeing backless tennis shoes show up on the shelves at stores. Almost every time I saw them on the shelf, I would comment to hubby something akin to “Running shoes need backs. Slippers don’t need to look like running shoes. Why would anyone wear those?” I thought it was the dumbest fashion trend and was certain it would disappear quickly. I was wrong. Not only did they not go away, I received a pair as a gift. The sorry part is that (shhh) I really love them. When I get out of bed, I throw on sweatpants, a sweatshirt and those shoes.
Every day. The insoles are ready to be replaced since I’ve worn them so much.
I’ve been watching for them to go on sale so I can get a new pair. Not to replace the ones I have… I can get a little more life out of those. The ones I own are white and my current favorite pants are black. The style of shoes that I really hated in the beginning, I’m now seeking in another color.
Lucky me, I found them! Check it out!
Get this – I found them on Home Shopping Network for $49.95. I’ve never shopped on Home Shopping Network before. Whenever I’ve thought of Home Shopping Network, I’ve pictured a middle-of-the-night TV channel with the countdown clock, quantity sold and “hurry before they are gone.” I’ve never surfed their website until a few days ago and found a lot of great items at very affordable prices. Normally, when I shop online, I head straight to Amazon but I discovered that Home Shopping Network had many items at better prices than that! Factor in a special promo (coupon for $20 off a $40 purchase) and it is an even better deal. As an example, the pair of shoes I found cost $51.87 on Amazon but only $49.95 on Home Shopping Network. I found the exact same item, exact same color and both have free shipping. An apples to apples comparison and Home Shopping Network is a better deal.
Did I mention that’s BEFORE the coupon for $20 off $40 purchase? Oh yeah. I did already. It was worth mentioning again though.
They have a lot of cool stuff ranging from kitchen, home and fitness to beauty and jewelry. Remember me raving about Lego Friends last week? As of right now, there are several available on Home Shopping Network – along with a variety of other Lego products and other toys. Not everything shows up in the listed categories on the home page so if there’s something in particular you’re shopping for (IE Lego Friends), type it into the search field. I typed in “Toys” and was surprised by all that showed up. With the new customer promotion, it’s a great deal.
