I bought from Tip Top for years: I like the range of shoes they carry and some of their salesmen (yes, always men) are quite good. But, based on my recent experience, I will never buy there again. I bought three pair of shoes for about $900+ and subsequently decided to return one pair. It was within a month but outside their "five day" return policy so I could only get a store credit. I think this is outrageous...and frankly, stupid. Why anger a customer that pays $900 at a time for shoes simply so you can hold on to their cash? I prefer to use stores that are more customer oriented and show it with reasonable return policies.

Tip Top is the best for affordable and comfortable all-season shoes. The Manager, Harold, and the Salesman, Frank, were kind, helpful, and beyond professional when I had to make two returns due to errors I had made during my purchases. These guys and their lovely, sympathetic female cashiers made my experience such a pleasant one. These very kind, attentive people and this store deserve a strong A++. A rare find.
