The familiar website for exchange of books and more recently electronic goods now boasts a rather well-stocked collection of shoes. It seems like Amazon has realised that since women and the minders of ‘home economics’ increasingly turn to the Internet for their shopping needs, it may be a very cunning idea to introduce luxury products, such as top brand shoes alongside vacuum cleaners and the latest novels. Of course, bidding is not enabled, and most items are horrifically overpriced, ranging from £12 for a pair of sandals to £140 for a pair of UGG boots. It is, however, nice to see older businesses adapt to new needs and new consumerist capabilities.
PS If you are a big fan of good footwear, like me, then check out Schuh’s eBay store. But mind that negative balance on your credit card!
