Decisions! Decisions! Decide!
Which Shoes Should I Buy? By: Adam Derry
Hmmmm……. Should I buy the store brand pop or the coke product? Should I buy the designer shirt or the discount shirt? There are many decisions that we are faced with every day. I had to make a decision on what type of shoes to buy for my birthday. In order to choose the right kind, I followed a decision making process.
DEFINE THE DECISION
First, I made a trip to the mall to spend my birthday money. I had $200 to spend. The store I chose to shop for shoes was Footlocker. I found two brands of shoes that I really liked. Lebron’s was one pair that I thought was really cool and Wade’s was the other pair that caught my attention. I had my choices narrowed down.
RESOURCES AND ALTERNATIVES
Fourth, I considered the pricing of both pair of shoes. The Lebron’s cost $180.00 and the Wade’s were $160.00. I tried on both brands of shoes to see which one felt better. The Lebron’s were very comfortable. The leather seemed to be of a good quality. I also liked the color and design of the Lebron’s shoes. When I tried on the Wade’s shoes, I wasn’t as impressed. They weren’t as comfortable on my feet and the leather didn’t seem to be as nice as the leather on the Lebron’s shoes. However, I did like the design and color of the Wade’s equally as well. I guess it was time for me to make a decision.
