> The reason I was asking is my wife will be eith me and she will shoot me if I try on every pair in the shop :-)
Wow, that is the reverse of what happens in my household. My wife buying shoes means an all day endeavor and she tries on dozens, and dozens of shoes. Only difference is that when I buy shoes, it is usually just one pair; for her it is several pairs. Of course we are not talking hiking shoes for my wife. If I am shopping for shoes, then she starts shopping and buying -- very painful.
I avoid shoe shopping with my wife at all costs.
