Life of Colleen: Cydwoq meanderings

I still need to buy my Cydwoqs. mumbles...
It's not the price that bothers me. I hardly ever buy shoes. The idea of purchasing a pair of shoes that will last year after year after year, pleases my cheapskate heart no end.
What cheeses me is finding places to try them on. There are stores around here that carry them...I tried Rabat of Berkeley and they had only Carry and the Command ankle boot. I didn't dare try on Command, because I knew I would want it, and it's probably not the most practical color (grey-green)--in this matter I insist on being annoyingly practical--I want dark shoes, don't wish to fret over every little scuff. Their Carry was nice--black, with a green "tear"--but (fortunately?) they didn't have it in my size.
It's not that I didn't like Carry; it looked great on me...I just want to be able to try on more options. Having choices is extremely important to consumers, as it is in life in general.
There is Bulo Shoes in the City. It's a hassle for me getting there...I don't live in the City anymore, don't miss it either...yet...what if they have tons of Cydwoqs? hmmm?
