I ordered some new bowling shoes about a week and a half ago. They look like this:
They're actually pretty stylish. They almost look like semi-trendy sneakers. Problem is, they shipped UPS Ground from Portland, Maine to San Diego and took about a week to get here. When I got 'em, it took me about 4 days before I tried them on... I of course assumed they'd fit because I bought the same size shoe I wear at the bowling alley. Not even close. So, I had to send them back. UPS Ground. To Maine. When they get them, they'll process the exchange for free, which is nice -- and then send the bigger size to me... via UPS Ground. Sigh. At least the shipping all three ways was free, and I got a good deal on the shoes. I'm shooting for bowling on August 7th if anyone's interested.
