Posted by ShoeSizeConverter on Sunday, January 29, 2012, In : New Shoes 
Is this a giant leap forward for shoe lovers? I think not. News out today that Halle Berry will be launching her own line of shoes. Now, make no mistake, I have nothing against Halle Berry, especially when she is wearing a catsuit, but is she really bringing anything to the table with this new shoe initiative.

Is Online Shopping Still Safe?

Posted by Shoesizeconverters on Tuesday, January 24, 2012, In : Online Shopping 
We have all seen the record online sales over the Holiday season in 2012. Records are broken each and every year, whilst the rise of smart phones and tablets pushes the boundaries of online shopping further and deeper.

However, we must be careful not to ignore the darker side of the online shoe shopping experience. Fraud. Hacking. Worms. Spyware. Despite the best defences, attacks can and still do happen. This was no more evident than the Recent Zappos attack which compromised the credit card ...
