Footlocker Complaint - If the shoe fits...wear it?
FARMINGTON, NEW MEXICO -- I wrote this review if for no other reason than to give you a laugh. This is a true story, you just can't make this kind of stuff up. I was shopping at Footlocker with my wife, and I found a pair of shoes that I liked. A clerk came and asked if I needed anything. I said that these look like something I'd like to try on. He politely asked what size of shoe I wear. I said size-13. We sat and waited for a few minutes, and then he emerged from behind the Wizard of Oz curtain. I swear on my life the following was actually said. He was holding a pair of shoes and said, "We don't have 13's, but will these 9's do"? What? Really? C'mon now! I looked at him and without laughing said, "Are kidding me"? He answered, "No sir, this is all I have them in". LMAO on the inside!! 12's or even 14's I could understand, but a 9? C'mon! What did he expect me to say? "Well, yeah, I guess if that's all you got then I guess I'll have to take them". Does it not dawn on him, that a man with a size-13 cannot even begin to attempt to put on a 9. What good would they have done me. Cut off the front and let my toes dangle out? In hindsight, I should've grabbed them and said, "Sure, let's give them a try". And then proceed to struggle trying them on, and say, "Nope, I guess size-9 just won't fit! That was 4-yrs ago, and I still laugh til' my sides hurt. COMMON SENSE PEOPLE!
