I am never a picky person when it comes to many things; in fact I’m a rather easy going dude that doesn’t mind sleeping on the hard floor or soft mattress. However, there are certain things in life that I really pay attention to and become utterly picky about. I’ve been wearing my semi-leather casual for quite some time, its durable and retro fashion, but having only one pair of shoe… it won’t last long. So I started browsing online and came across this outdoor CAT shoes on TaoBao.
Caterpillar shoes/boots are one of my top choices, but I always end up getting a pair of Timberlands for some reason, so I thought a little change this time won’t hurt. The prices seem reasonable and legit, anywhere from 500 – 700RMB should be OK and your chance of ending up with a pair of “grade A replica” is reduced. But since I’m tight on budget these days, I decided and went for the “grade C” off brand C.A.T.
The shoes arrived within 3.5 days, transportation in China is quite efficient from city-to-city (NOTE: lets just talk about speed here) despite the fact that China is a mega size country. In general, I’m giving this shoes a C+ for meeting my expectation for the price I paid, and the most important part is… the shoes fit perfectly comfortable, amazing.
– cheap pricing, large amount selection, guilty satisfaction, one more shoes to wear, mimic-real-leather-smell-and-it-smells-good
– noticeable poor quality, incorrect sizing label, off-scale color, might last shorter than my semi-leather casual
