Last week Running Warehouse was having a clearance sale on all of their old shoe models to make room for the new ones, and I took advantage of that sale plus our group code to order a new pair of my model of shoes - and in a shocking pink!!! Now, generally I leave the super-bright colors to my faster compatriots and go for the more muted colors - no need to draw attention to MY slow-moving feet, LOL! But, I'm a pink kind of person and getting a color different from my existing pair would make them much easier to tell apart at a glance, so I clicked "add to cart" and completed my order.
The shoes arrived Friday afternoon and I excitedly pulled them out of the box and took this picture:
Then I tried them on - hmmm - feel a little snug...obviously I need to adjust the laces a bit (like I always do with a new pair - in fact, I usually replace the laces with Yankz! altogether). So I worked my way down the laces, loosening as I went - and then I grabbed the tongue to pull it back up - and a number caught my eye...7. Seven! Not 7.5!?!?! Checked the other shoe - yup, also a 7. Checked the box - 7. Checked the receipt - said 7 there too.
Bummer. Obviously I got a little click-happy when ordering and selected 7 instead of 7.5. Good news is that RW does free returns and exchanges, so they're on their way back to the warehouse as we speak. Unfortunately this means I probably won't get the replacement pair in the correct size in time to feel comfortable wearing them at Big Sur next weekend, but oh well - probably don't want to draw that kind of attention to my feet yet anyway.
