A pre-order makes sense when I find that absolutely-in-love (over-the-fence, World Series kind of stuff) shoe that I know is a rare or coveted style only carried at a few retailers.I’m a very gotta-have-it-now express shipping kind of shoe buyer so when I know a style won’t be on my feet until February, March or April I usually wait.
Pre-ordering is a good way to snag your favorite next season shoe – especially if your size is always sold out or you take a half size like me!I receive emails daily from readers trying to find their must-have shoe when unfortunately their size sold out.
I added a few styles from new Pre-Fall 2014 collections which are currently available for a limited time at the pre-order hub, Moda Operandi. My favorite pre-order potentials for spring are featured below.
