    Piperlime is a bit of a joke. I think Gap should focus on getting their core business back on track before they “go” after Zappos. That is a big hill to climb especially when it is so different than what they know. Just my 2 cents

  2. Lauren says:

    Brian, your two cents are always welcome. I actually agree with you. I posted a while back that Gap was having serious problems (totally missed the fall trends) and I do think they need to fix those other brands. However, as a shoe fiend…I don’t mind this site at all! The more choices we have, the better.

    Beware of Piperslime! I ordered one pair of shoes and three times I got the wrong size. Eventually they ran out of stock on the item I ordered and I never got my shoes! Once is an accident, twice a mistake, but three times is a pattern. Their excuse? …”It happens.”
