Clifford the Big Red Dog

Clifford The Big Red Dog!

About two weeks ago I was hired as a Certified Pharmacy Technician at a big name pharmacy. Tomorrow I will be doing on the job training. Part of the dress code is to wear solid black shoes.

Ummm, I didn’t own any. So a few days ago, I went to Big 5 in Modesto. I found some shoes that were close to what would be comfortable, but I wasn’t willing to settle. Today, I went to Kohl’s in Riverbank.

As I approached the doors, I could see the new Kohl’s Care’s towers. I was giddy and excited! I loved Clifford the Big Red Dog as a child!!! While I wasn’t planning to do a post about shoe shopping, I knew it was the perfect item to feature on the blog.

For any of my readers who don’t know, Kohl’s Cares for Kids is a program that Kohl’s sells plush toys and beginning readers books for $5.00. 100% of the NET PROFIT (not retail sales price) is donated to kids health and education initiatives nationwide.

As a child, I think Clifford’s Halloween was my favorite story.

Kohl’s is selling  stuffed versions of Clifford, Emily Elizabeth, T-Bone, and Cleo. They also have several books available: Clifford’s ABC’s, Clifford Goes to Kindergarten,  Clifford and the Missing Beach Ball, and Clifford Takes a Trip.

If you have someone who loves Clifford the Big Red Dog and Emily Elizabeth, you need to head over to Kohl’s!

Returning to my shopping mission now, I tried on a few different shoes and I just wasn’t feeling it. I was sitting on the bench and I looked forward.

There was a box out of place. The image on it was solid black. It was my size. Could it really be this easy?

I have the world’s widest foot, so shoes are always a challenge for me. I generally have to wear a men’s 4E. For comparison a women’s medium is a B, a women’s wide is a D, a men’s medium is a D, a men’s wide is a 2E and a MEN’S EXTRA WIDE is a 4E!  Men’s sizes are 1 1/2 sizes smaller then women’s for the same length.

I pulled out the Skechers box. I have never worn Skechers before, but why not. The shoe is called the flex and it is a memory foam shoe. The shoe is mostly mesh. That means not only can my feet breathe, the shoe is more forgiving for the wideness of my foot.

OH MY GOODNESS! These were the bestest feeling shoes I have put on my feet in ages.

That being said, Bart was like really? He found a pair in his size and tired them on. He couldn’t believe how incredible they felt. He ended up getting a pair as well.

When we got up to the check-out counter, Mariah  (I think was her name) helped us. She got Bart to sign up for a Kohl’s card saving another 25% off the already on sale shoes.

Today, Kohl’s was clearly the winner from needing one pair of shoes for one person to getting two pairs for two people. Kohl’s clearly won with the sale prices and new card holder discounts. And finally Kohl’s Cares!
