Where did you see this? I got no plans tomorrow
always best to call the outlet just to see what they got left but yeah this is my go to place for cheap shoes.
Picked these Vans up while I was in Texas. Been a while since I've actually had a pair of Vans. They're pretty comfy
I just saw this video on the new Vans and I kinda wanted a pair but even at its price I still rather get some decent Adidas.
Honestly ever since New Balance became Trump shoes, Adidas have been my go to for sneakers. Some Vans are pretty cool, but nothing else really does it for me. Also I hate the trend of sneakers having ridiculously blown out soles.
Tried the outlets on Sunday but nothing struck my fancy, so I ordered a pair of Sambas
Got a pair of those new Comfy whatever Vans slip-ons and it’s the first time in my life I can wear them without wanting to die.
ComfyCush. They've actually been selling some shoes with better-cushioned insoles for a little while now, but this is the first time they've marketed them as obviously. Before you had to find certain Pro or Lite models. I have a pair, and they're wonderful. I'm glad to see Vans keep going with the idea, unlike Converse who discontinued the Chuck II.
Finally got some good weather so I’m breaking out the big guns...
I’m about to relace mine, been having the orange and blue mix-match
this better not be an april fools joke
Bought my first pair of Jordan's and I adore them
Love that colourway.
Seriously tempted to get a pair of these.
Guys..... I am so stoked
When I'm not broke like I am right now, I'm going to get myself a new pair of old skool Vans. These orange ones are pretty rad & I'm leaning towards them.
Anyone ever bought anything of StockX? Good/bad?
StockX has been good in my experience (bought 5 or 6 pairs in the past year). Some shoes (specifically foams) I have read are harder to verify and some people have ended up getting fakes but that seems very, very rare. Most common issue I have seen is that some people receive pairs that aren't completely DS.
DS? Also do they only sell unworn pairs?
DS means Deadstock. They are supposed to only sell unworn pairs in original boxes. Basically sellers send their shoes to a StockX warehouse, someone inspects them (eye test), they put a StockX tag on it and verify, then ship it out to you.
I bought a pair of Jordan XIV's and 3 pairs of Prestos and Presto Mids (haven't been into sneakers for 5 or 6 years until last year). I personally haven't had any issues, shipping was always up to date, shoes came in perfect condition in the original boxes.
I had a good experience with GOAT (bought 1 pair of flyknit Prestos) until somehow, someone hacked my account on there and purchased a pair of shoes without me knowing (didn't even use the same mailing address or name on the account that I had) and then had to deal with getting a refund from GOAT that took forever due to their less than stellar customer service.
I have purchased a couple pairs from StockX and have never had issues. My only beef, and its 100% just me, is that I hate waiting for stuff and it takes a little longer with StockX.
Sweet, cheers for that. Although I should imagine that, if they take a while to deliver to the states, I’ll have an even longer wait in the UK!
Ya, I believe they have a warehouse in the UK or at least in Europe. But at least in my experience, tracking numbers and shipping information was kept up to date and I never felt like I was in the dark about where my sneakers were.
Never had a pair of NMDs before and tried a pair on today after being in love with these for the past few days.
Ordered them tonight, I’m real excited to get them.
Thinking about getting my first ever pair of Jordans. Anything a newbie should know? Any good recommendations?
The Jordan 1 Retro Gym Red’s dropping this Saturday at 10AM on SNKRS app are really fresh imo, might be a difficult cop though depending on your size. I actually went ahead and bought them already on GOAT (resell app) for FOMO but it might be easier than I’m thinking it’ll be. You really can’t go wrong with Jordan 1’s though.
Also I just un-DS’d my black Fear Of God Raid’s and good lord these are comfy as all hell. I’m so close to pulling the trigger on the light bone color way.
