I get pitches to write about new websites allllll the time. The problem is most of them are just new versions of something that has already been done.
Not MyShoes.com. This site rocks and is a serious threat to my budget. Here’s why.
MyShoes.com lets you customize your search for shoes and pairs results with coupons from PromotionalCode.com. So you not only find shoes you like, but you get a good deal.
There are six ways to customize your shoe search, including by heel size, color, brand, style, features, and price range. I’m considering buying a new pair of black boots, seeing how my round-toe flat black boots are going out of style and my cowboy boots are great for certain occasions but not as versatile as I would like. I’m looking for a classic, pointy toe black leather knee or calf boot with a low heel.
MyShoe search results included a pair of rsvp boots with a wrinkled leg for $67, Aerosole synthetic leather boots for $70, an Anne Klein pair for $90, and a Vince Camuto boot with a chunky heel for $110. Great options among the 97 results!
There are drawbacks to the site, however. You can’t exclude certain features. For instance, when I searched for boots I got a lot of results for shorty boots, which I am not interested in. I hadn’t checked the shorty boot feature, but since they fall under boots they appeared in my results.
The site just launched in November, so there are a few kinks. If you sort the results or change how many results you see per page, for example, the site does not save these settings if you click on a particular boot then return to all the search results. That’s annoying.
The site compares shoe prices at Zappos, ShoeBuy.com, Pipperlime, Nordstrom’s, Macy’s, Heels.com but only lists the top few prices. I wish I could see all the results so I would know the range in prices the shoe is selling for. Other than that, I found MyShoes to be easy to use. Maybe a little too easy.
