OK thanks. But this implies buying shoes online, which is something I don't do. I have too much of a problem with shoes as it is, so I don't buy without wearing first. I might just go for a lower in Johnston and Murphy item due to the cost. I want to wear it for some events that are in the Winter months so I would be leery about some really nice shoe, even with galoshes. Getting formal looking boots would be even another expense I don't want right now.
