I saw these babies in Aldo:
But they were 74.95 euros, reduced from over 100 euros (to be honest I didn't even clock the original price, over three figures loses my interest)
So what? You say.
Well, a quick google search showed them on sale in Canada on the Aldo site for 29.95 Canadian dollars (reduced from 110 Canadian dollars)
This, my friends is (checks www.xe.com) a starting price of 84 euros reduced to 22 euros.
Are we idiots? Why are we paying three times the price for the same damn shoes?
I really want them though, they remind me of the covetable Isabel Marant Bobby's that have been gracing feet of fashionistas for the last few seasons:
Still weird, I know, but they look amazing in a I-didn't-even-try way, with skinny black jeans and any damn top you like. These Bobby's cost hundreds (over 400 euro), but it's a moot point, because they're sold out forever.
So Aldo (not telling you where!) have my size, think they may be the last ones in the shop. Will I be a schmuck and pay the 75 euros for them, reasoning that they're way cheaper than Bobby's, and I might have considered them if I hadn't checked the Canadian price.
Do I leave them, to become the "ones that got away" and think of them constantly?
Would I even wear them, as they have a heel and I'm usually "slinging" a baby where'er I go, and heels are not an option these days?
But they're springy, and weird, and I just like them.
I'll sleep on it, maybe I'll have an epiphany overnight.
