Now on sale!

I love Amazon, and they often have great deals. Then I was looking for shoes (I'm a problematic shoe shopper, so the easier the better) and ran across the classic Chucks:

List price $39.99? No way, pay only our amazing reduced Amazon price of... $39.99! Nothing's more enticing than zero dollars in savings.

On the subject of Chuck Taylors, I was at Famous Footwear today and briefly looked at them, as I haven't owned any since probably the third grade (my first pair having been an awesome paint-spatter pair, complete with glow-in-the-dark paint, in kindergarten; the second and last having been the classic black hi-tops). They started at a men's four (obviously to cater to women, since nothing else in the men's section is below a 6), but didn't stock anything above a 9. As someone wearing a men's fifteen, that was just a tiny bit smaller than what I'd need.

Back on the topic of shoe prices, I'm convinced "sales" on shoes are all a sham. Every time I go to Famous Footwear or anywhere else that isn't An Expensive One-Brand Shoe Store, everything is mysteriously "on sale" for $50 or less despite price tags in the $60 - $90 range. Hmm. Coincidence? I think not.
