After not being able to make it down to the States over the long weekend, I was able to run down this morning before my first appointment of the day. This was my first time using the services of Hagen’s of Blaine so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Let me say this – Hagen’s rocks! What a great little service! They receive packages for you for $2 plus $1 for a phone call to let you know it’s in. They’ll hold it for 10 days, afterwhich there is another $2 charge. And, if you pay cash it’s even cheaper.
Anyhow, being a Nexus holder, I zipped across the border in no time at all. I got to Hagen’s and minutes later I had my shoes and was on my way home again. The guy at the border didn’t even ask the value of my goods coming home. He asked why I was down to which I replied that I was picking up an online purchase. He asked if I got it, I said yes, and he let me go. Very easy.
For the rest of the day I was busy with appointments, and my poor new shoes had to hang out in the car and wait for me. Finally I made it home and just tried them on – ahhhhh, they feel so good! I love getting new shoes and here they are…
I was a little concerned the colors might be a bit yucky since they were listed as ‘Red/Gunmetal/Grey’ but I picked these ones because the other option ‘Blue/White’ was really, really blue and just too bright for me. I was really pleased when I got them out of the box because the ‘Red’ is actually more like a hot pink color and I think they look great. I think I’ll try and take them for a spin later this evening and see how they feel.
I can’t thank the Runner’s Lounge and Onlineshoes.com enough. What a treat – with the gift certificate prize these shoes only cost me $11.63. Now that’s a deal!
