My answer to this use to be yes, when I was a lot younger and didn't have very much money. Now there is no way I would ever buy shoes there. Not because I am a snob but because they all hurt my feet. That is where bunnions and blisters come from (at least in my case) The materials and the craftsmanship are very cheap. I tried to explain this to a member of my family but they are just stuck on the idea that I am an elitist.
