Shoebuy.com, the footwear division of Wal-Mart’s Jet.com business, has purchased the domain Shoes.com.

The domain became available in January when Shoes.com, a Canadian-based company, announced it was shutting down operations. The company indicated it was working with its secured lenders to determine the process to liquidate assets. ShoeBuy did not purchase other assets of the company.

ShoeBuy said it plans to maximize Shoes.com “as the gold standard of category websites.” Visitors to Shoebuy.com are already taken to the new domain.
