It’s been a while since I’ve written about an online shopping experience, right? (Remember my adventures with Asos?) It’s not like I haven’t been doing any less shopping these last few months, but it’s mostly been vintage cameras & the likes.
Recently India has had an ecommerce boom of sorts… seriously. There are fashion related webstores everywhere you look & I don’t have the patience (or resources!) to try them all.
I had obviously noticed Jabong via their funny TV commercial. They stock all kinds of stuff- apparel & accessories for men & women as well as things for the home.
I finally tried shopping with them a few days ago. I decided to buy shoes, because I was having a bit of a shoe drought. They have a very large inventory, I was browsing their shoe section when there it was- Keds. They had Keds! I swear I could hear the angels singing at that moment.
You see, I have wanted Keds for a very long time. But they aren’t available in India. I even considered sending my mom to look for them on her trip overseas, but I already sent her to a few stores to look for a bag I wanted.
So of course all I had to check was whether Jabong had it in my size, & they did!

Jabong promises to get you your stuff in 2-5 working days. And these fantastic Lavender Keds were with me in two days. I ordered Sunday early morning (& by that I mean like 3AM) & on Monday they were here. That’s one working day! Color me impressed.
What’s more, it was delivered by their own courier company, & the guy who delivers it waits for you to inspect it/try it on. If it doesn’t fit, he takes it right back with him. Though I pre-paid with a debit card, they also have cash on delivery. I was so happy with their service I may or may not have ordered two more pairs of shoes & a kurta. In my defense, my mom’s birthday is coming up & one of those was a gift for her! All the shoes were sent in shoe boxes, wrapped in thick plastic. The kurta was shipped in larger than a shoe box, so it was quite pristine. Once I had a minor doubt with my order, so called their hotline, the guy I talked to was quite efficient & helpful.
I may not be the easiest person to please, but Jabong has passed the test with flying colors! I will definitely keep scanning their collections for more stuff to buy.
Oh & the keds? I’d love to wear/style them right away but monsoons have kind of started now & I’m not going to ruin these babies in the rain.

I was provided with a discount voucher that paid in part for these shoes. All opinions are mine & I paid fully for all three subsequent purchases.
