I ordered 3 pairs from Zappos the other day. This is out of the 5 pairs I originally had in my cart.
I really, really wanted to like the top ones most of all.
First I tried on the ASICS. I found that the toe box was super tight and there was more pressure than I find comfortable across the top of my foot. Sad, they’re very pretty and the cheapest of all 5 pairs.
Next I tried both Rykas on at the same time. Sadly, my narrow heels slipped a ton in both styles. Womp womp. Back to square one (and apologies to our office mailroom guy who keeps bringing/retrieving shoe boxes for me.) If you do NOT have weirdly narrow heels or constant issues with heel slippage, these may work for you!
Also, a note of appreciation for Zappos being the shit. I’m also buying/returning winter boots (one style, but two different sizes/colors) and I confused one of my return orders. Livechat assistance sorted it all out for me AND fixed it so I could exchange for what I want instead of returning/re-buying. A+ customer service.
Next up (maybe after I finish my current round of returns): these terrifyingly bright/amazing ASICS.
