Whenever you are on the lookout for a new pair, there are a lot of things to consider. Too much actually, that it's gonna drive you crazy, to the point that you're already losing the main point of buying... having fun! To help you out, we've got some pointers to guide you in getting the pair you want!
Know the shoe- First of all, if you are really in love with a certain pair, do find out the possibilities. Is it a one of one, 500 in the world? Is it a GR and just hoarded? Is it a website exclusive? These factors can narrow down your decision on how your battle plan can be.
Research and know about every nook and cranny of the shoe- Legit checks? Yes! We've seen hundreds of overexcited people who end up getting fakes. These are the targets of fake sellers. If ordering online, ask for tagged pictures and make sure that the photos sent are truly the sender's.
Find a safe meet up place- Yes, definitely safety is required! Meetups can be done at the mall, coffee shop or in front of your house!
When shipping, go the extra mile. Avoid shady sellers by doing background checks and go for safe payment methods such as bank transfer or Paypal. These payment terms allow you to have extra leverage if ever the transaction goes sour.
Make sure it's your size. Don't get carried away by steal deals. Make sure it's the perfect fit, just because it's a 9 means you will fit in it. Sizes vary so take note!
If it’s too good to be true, walk away. Someone selling below retail for a grail you like? Get out! When deals seem like it was off a dream sequence, stay out! Better safe than sorry!
