Always one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I asked the sales girl why the discount. She told me that they accept shoes larger than a size 10 but sell them at a lower price point because they figure there’s less demand for 11s and 12s.
Allow me to step right up and take advantage.
I’m certain the same logic was at work when Crossroads priced these brand new size 11 Nine West leather boots at $12.50. That’s right, $12.50 (original price around $50).
Of course, this rule works both ways, as I found out when I sold Crossroads a pair of full-length black suede boots and saw them priced below $30.
But since I typically wear my shoes until there’s nothing between my soles and the pavement but a layer of Goo, this policy is yet another reason for me to always buy consignment.
