Now that I live in Florida and I'm super near the water, my obsession has only grown. I'm pleased to announce that after eight years, over the holiday weekend, that obsession became a reality. I was on Sperry's website innocently browsing (remember the old bank account lock down? Yea, it's still kinda in effect) and found a few pairs I liked. Namely these:
|Sperry Top-Sider Bluefish-2 Eye Boat Shoes in Linen Mesh|
|Sperry Top-Sider Bluefish-2 Eye Boat Shoe in Grey Nubuck/Tattersall|
I like to save a buck when I can so I headed over to Ebates and found that Sperry is NOT one of their retailers. GASP! The search did pull up a few retailers who carried Sperry so off I went on their websites. The first website was a bust and had only a few pairs of Sperry's period and I hated all the colors. The next website, Shoebuy.com had my shoes in Linen Mesh. I actually preferred the Grey Nubuck color because I love the Tattersall print so I decided to mull it over for a day or two. My answer came a day later when Ebates had their Double Cash Back promo for the holiday and Shoebuy.com shot up to 15%! After some further searching, I found a 10% off coupon for them too and I discovered they have free shipping. Looks like Linen Mesh it is. After it was all said and done with, the shoes were only $71 and if I really want to justify it, if I subtract my cashback of about $11, they were really only $60. Yea. Life is good. Now in hindsight, I think the mesh sides will be good for me...I get hot really easily sothe built in A/C will be a major plus.
They aren't here yet but I can't wait!
