In Defense of Zappos.com

Look Kanye, Zappos made a product just for you!



I will be the first person to admit that I know nothing about Kanye West. I know he is a rapper/performer and I also know he is mixed up with Kim Kardashian. I couldn’t tell you what he specifically does other than piss people off and walks around with a perpetual scowl on his face. Yet he has gone too far this time by bad mouthing my beloved Zappos.com.


Their product page


I have not hidden my shoe addiction. I browse regularly on Zappos.com for shoes. I love boots and they have an awesome selection. I have purchased so many shoes from Zappos.com that I am a VIP and get free next day shipping. I know…this last piece of information is a little scary. One of the things I like about Zappos is my ability to shop and get a pair of shoes via the internet and if I don’t like them or they don’t fit I can send them back for free. They make it easy to shop.


I have these Frye boots from Zappos.com


Zappos.com also pioneered the demonstration video for all their shoes. They have a short clip whereby someone explains the fit, features and how a particular shoe will wear. They always have lots of pictures and reviews so I know what I’m looking at before I buy. Yes, some of their products are inexpensive but a majority of the offerings are quite exceptional. I bought some Frye boots a few years ago and am still wearing them.


I liked the black so much I bought them in brown from Zappos.com


I would boycott Kanye but I already own nothing associated with him. So I guess I will continue on my merry way and ignore him. I would like to take this opportunity to say that Zappos.com’s CEO Tony Hsieh responded with his own funny and creative comeback. It doesn’t appear as if these guys are letting a few nasty words from a generally nasty guy impair their sense of humor. The perfect way to respond to a bully.

Didn't know that Alexander McQueen made poor quality shoes, but that is what Kanye insinuated
