Like I said… I am not really for shopping and going around the mall to buy clothes, shoes and accessories. It is not a pleasant pastime for me, and I would only do it if I absolutely have to.
BUT… I love shoes. As with most other things I wear, the shoes I pick out are usually flamboyant or at least 5 inches high. I have at least 3 suede shoes (black peep-toe booties with 5 inches heels, I have blue suede mary-janes with little cut-outs, and my favorite red 5-inch suede pumps with needle heels —- sigh… ), I have different forms and styles of black shoes, at least 2 other red shoes, bejeweled sandals and one with a gold accent, a couple of nudes, black chucks with hot pink details, an Onitsuka something (I forgot the model), strappy white sling backs, and I some others that I am sure I have forgotten to mention.
When I found out about “She Likes Shoes” I was of course properly intrigued. The first ever shoe-subscription website, SLS aims to capture the discerning and shoe-loving female public.
Yes, that’s right… you subscribe to get shoes delivered to your doorstep. Can I hear anyone say “Awesome.”??? Damn right. For a minimum of P499, you can be a registered subscriber and start receiving a new pair every 30 days!
So this is how it works:
- To view the shoe closet, just fill out our sign up form at their website – www.shelikesshoes.com.
- Don’t worry, signing up does not mean you are already subscribing.
- To buy shoes from the shoe closet, you must first subscribe!
- To subscribe, click on SUBSCRIBE NOW. Just choose how long you want to subscribe (3, 6 or 12 months) and how you want to pay for it (Paypal or Pesopay).
- You will automatically be charged a flat rate of Php 499.00 (discounted STEP) on the 3rd of each month for the duration of your subscription period (3, 6 or 12 months).
- They use the points system, which means that to get the pair of shoes you want, you must have enough points!
- Points are called STEPS.
- All subscribers are entitled to pick 1 pair every month from the shoes under 1 STEP.
- You may BUY MORE STEPS if you wish to get more shoes from the shoe closet aside from the 1 pair that subscribers are entitled to each month.
- Buying STEPS is easy, just click BUY MORE STEPS and then select how many you want to buy.
- 1 STEP is equal to Php 500.00.
- Only those who are already subscribed for 3, 6 or 12 months can get shoes from the shoe closet.
Pretty sweet right? So I tried it out, sent my order on the 4th, and had these two lovely pairs delivered to my office on the 22nd (regular deliveries of shoes are done between the 21st and 27th of the month):
And other fun fact is that I noticed that the shoe designs all have names of female characters from either Shakespeare or superhero comic books… love love love!
So yes, I am hooked and shall be continuing my subscription for quite a while…
Now how to fit them all in my closet…
