Slightly deflated but not completely defeated she made the purchase online from ALDO's website. She waited and waited for two days until her beloved shoes arrived via UPS Ground. To her total shock and complete dismay the shoes were incredibly small and uncomfortable. Her size was indeed printed on the bottom of the shoe and to her knowledge her feet had not grown over night.
For our heroine this was a sad sad day indeed. To add insult to injury she must pay for return shipping to the tune of $11 as ALDO will not accept an in store refund due to her paying for the shoes via Paypal.
Goodbye lovely shoes. It was nice knowing ya!
Moral of the store is that ALDO sucks and that Italian Sizing is not consistent. Just because you are a 40 in one designer does not mean that you are a 40 in every designer.
