I need a new pair of bowling shoes; mine are at least twenty years old. Nice and worn in, but it’s time.
I liked the look of the KR Strikeforce Kross. I didn’t need professional shoes with interchangeable soles and ankles for different lane conditions. I didn’t have to spend that much.
Aren’t they pretty?
The first website, bowling.com had free shipping, but wanted to charge $5.95 for packaging. It’s that hard to throw a box into a box and print out a label?
Amazon was just a couple of dollars higher, but no packaging fee. Shipping would have been free if I would subscribe, but my track record for cancelling a free trial of anything always backfires.
Third time is the charm. Bowlingball.com had the same price as bowling.com. Had no packaging fee. Shipping was free if I could wait three to five days. I jumped at the chance.
It pays to do a little bit of searching.
