Get In And Get Out At Footaction

At this point, you’re probably well aware of my love for in-store pickup and how often I try to save time from doing my physical shopping inside a store. You can read all about the various partners and companies I use to help me save time shopping. Today I’d like to feature a new company that I recently discovered has in-store pickup that could help make your shoe buying experience take less than a weekend afternoon or weekday evening. I can understand the reluctancy to purchase a pair of shoes online if they don’t have a great return policy with accompanying free return shipping. What if you could reserve those shoes with in-store pickup instead? Would you be more likely to purchase them through an online retailer? That’s exactly what Footaction offers with their in-store pickup that we’ll be discussing today.

The Classic Converse Alternative: PF Flyers

For me, there’s never be a debate over what a classic style sneaker should look like despite the differing opinions you may receive if you pose that question. A classic styled sneaker is not likely going to have much comfort or support, classic shoes didn’t have air bubbles or pockets after all, but these sneakers weren’t designed for hiking, instead they were made for making a style statement. It’s about coordinating your overall outfit while being as functional as possible. Over the years, I’ve been seeing more and more weddings that even leverage the classic style sneaker as their footwear of choice. I don’t necessarily understand, or agree, with the style statement, but I do agree that you can’t always roll around with dress shoes on your feet. I’ve owned several different brands and styles over the years, but there’s one in particular that embodies the classic sneaker look more than any other brand in my opinion. Maybe it’s just the region I’ve grown up in, but in the debate between Converse or PF Flyers I choose to go with what I perceive to be the alternative: PF Flyers.
