|Keen Bern Baby Bern boots purchased at|
REI in Bend.
Fast forward two months and I am still dreaming about the Keen Bern Baby Bern boots in oak--that's the color. I had looked at other boots, weighed the pros and cons and still wanted the boots! How could I not?!!! They are gorgeous AND practical! It would have been more practical to get the boots in black but the oak color "had me at hello"!
In searching online where to purchase my new boots (a trip to the mall in Medford was out of the question), I found that REI carried them. We decided to go to Bend so called REI in Bend to find out if they had the Keen Bern Baby Bern boots in size 8 1/2. They did! I was ecstatic!!! I asked the salesperson to put them on "hold" for me. So off we went to Bend. When I got to the store and told the shoe salesman who I was he went to get the boots. He opened the box and there they were. I asked to try them on one more time so he unzipped a boot and handed it to me. As I was putting it on he said, "Oh no, the zipper's broken!" regarding the second boot. My heart sank:( I asked, a bit timidly, "Do you have another pair of size 8 1/2?" He went off to check and came back with another pair--Yay! The salesman went to help another customer and I proceeded to try BOTH boots on. Got them on and looked down to admire my beautiful new boots and again my heart sank--each boot was a different shade of brown...very different. Sooo, I frantically looked in the boxes and realized I had one boot on from each box. When I got both boots from one box on, they matched and looked perfect! The next day I wore them as we walked around downtown Bend as it snowed big fluffy flakes!
