I think Marc is echoing what others in the thread have said, which is, since you are unhappy with the selection of your local stores, order a few pairs from an online retailer with a good return policy (like REI or Zappos). Keep the pair that fits the best and send the rest back for a refund.

Most online places make you eat the shipping to return in my experience... So to really try a selection of shoes that's a lot of money I just don't have.

But you did make me wonder if REI can do ship to store for me to try on some of their online selection without having to ship back... Hmmm...

You can order online from REI and return to your store (no return shipping necessary) http://www.rei.com/help/return-policy.html

Wow that is great to know. This should probably do the trick. Cool

A link that I also included with the link to the REI Evolv selection, had the OP bothered to check.....
What's more, if you have your order shipped to an REI store for in-person pick-up, you don't have to pay for that shipping, either.

The down side of all this, of course, is if someone doesn't have the $600-$700 to order 5 pairs of shoes at one time and to tie up most of that money until the refund process is complete.

That's true. If there isn't a dire need for shoes ASAP you can take your time with the process, though.

My bad not seeing that. thanks for the help. Your "tone" and approach just kinda put me on the defense a bit. No worries. Every time I get on a forum anywhere there's just trolls going after everybody! Kinda ruins the preconceptions

you have to have a super small or big foot for any of those to work. They dont even put in closeout until they have cleared most of the common sizes.
