  • Taobao Shoes Fail


    It seems like I can never learn from my mistakes. I kept on buying shoes from Taobao coz they look so good on the models and in the pictures, the shoes' quality aren't so bad~


    I have been deceived by the pictures on Taobao before. I have told myself to never buy shoes on Taobao ever again. However, when I see the prices, which is just around $5-10USD, I would think, "what the hell, it's not that expensive. If the quality is bad or that it doesn't fit, then just let it be."

    So, once again, I bought a couple pairs of shoes. One for Cho and one for me. Cho got the yellow pair and I got the orange pair. There are several other colors for this particular pair of shoes. I wanted to get them in black, but knowing I already have many black shoes, I decided I'll try something new. A BIG mistake. The orange itself looks bad. And the size is all wrong. It's too big! The shoes are too wide. I don't think anyone would have enough meat on their feet to fill the shoes.

    The color, the over size problem and my dark skin color makes this look hooker-ish on me. Not only have I wasted the money on these shoes, now I have to find a space to put them in.

    On the bright side, the yellow ones are ok looking. Not good but acceptable. However, it's probably too big for Cho. If I can fit it, then it'll probably be too big for her.

      1. I agree! sometimes taobao is the best place to shop and you are blown away by how cheap some things are and how nice they look when you get them. but sometimes it is a total miss and it is not wearable or usable at all.

    3. I love the style of those shoes! I could never pull of yellow, being pretty pale. I'm always afraid to buy shoes online because my feet are admittedly...pretty big. At least they weren't super expensive!

      1. We have the same problem with big feet as well.... but the nice thing about taobao is that they can custom make your size :) and it wouldn't be a lot more expensive, maybe something like $2usd.

        So if you live in Asia or have friends who do, ordering shoes through this website is sometimes a good thing :)

      2. My feet are gigantic (compared to other hong kong-ers here). So, I can't find sheos my size!!! If i do find shoes my size, I have to pay a fortune and those shoes that fit are plain and boring. It's so unfair! Why can't people with big feet have pretty shoes at reasonable price?

      1. I agree,

        But then again on the bright side, it was cheap and that means even if it falls apart very quickly it won't be too too sad :p
        and it would be time for new shoes again :)

      1. I totally understand what you mean about the language!
        I can't read Chinese either,
        I get my sister to read it for me.
        But maybe get a friend to read it, I found that google translate didn't translate that website well enough :p
