Good Morning Folks!
I have a problem: just ordered from Amazon.com and had what I thought was the perfect boots for a beloved family member to help her get through the cold winters here in Korea. After researching many tens of hours reading through dozens of shoes online based on what I believe would make the perfect boots for given the unique conditions here in Korea, I chose ECCO's "Women's Chase II Gore-Tex Slouch Boot". I selected these boots because they have a high-end fashionable look, are gore-tex water resistant, and most importantly they are incredibly comfortable to wear-- ECCOs are renowned for their comfort and I can personally attest to this fact (I own more than 10 pairs). Unfortunately, I found out that this particular model is not available in Korea and I subsequently made the somewhat risky decision to buy a pair from Amazon.com ten days ago. The shipper only had the FedEx option available and therefore I ended up going beyond my budget for global shipping. What happened next? Well, Murphy's Law was in full effect and the problem that I actually worried about came true--it was too big. The size specs for the boots I ordered are: EU 41 | US 10~10.5 M . Sadly, these wonderful and perfect boots for Korea turned out to be too small and they are a bit too big for me to wear myself. Why not just return it? I found out that I would have to pay around 60,000KRW for return int'l shipping and I am in no mood to spend any more on this well intentioned fiasco. Perhaps the universe set up this entire thing so that another deserving and wonderful woman in Korea could enjoy these boots instead but at a very good discount. They go for $169.77 retail on Amazon the last time I checked, without the shipping cost. This is my first time selling on Craigslist but I somehow imagined selling these brand new boots for 150,000 KRW (or best offer) to a lovely person who have perhaps been dreaming-thinking about owning a great pair of winter boots to help make living in Korea a tad more pleasant.
Thanks for reading! Jen
