I got them … And not as expensive as I first thought.
Coming in at 63.40 GBP, $102.21 CAD.
With a little ingenuity, and some smart, cyber sleuthing, if you take the time to look in places you might not think will sell a similar product, you usually come up a winner.
European websites are not strange places. And you can get some seriously good products shopping over seas. The German, Netherlands, and the U.K. Market are great places to shop.
I start locally. With an image. Sports players Sport top end clothing, shoes, etc … For every player on the field, the court, or the mat, there is a style. Top dollar athletes usually sport their endorsements and so you know, that product is made in bulk somewhere. You just have to know where to look for it.
And sometimes you find that if you go to a specific athletic website, you will get redirected to the site that covers where you live, (i.e. The U.S., North America, Canada, or Europe) and with that they only allow you to shop regionally, and not across borders. I have found ways around that border.
There are specific points of sale over seas, who usually carry, name brand clothing items and specialty sports wear of teams from overseas.
This recent GET, is coming from a U.K. sales point. Because, as I have said earlier, I could not find these trainers on local or regional sites, (i.e. Ebay, Nike or Google). But they did appear on European Ebay sites. With a little further research, I found the seller I just bought from (Fossartist.co.uk). Their prices were cheaper than going with EBAY UK.
The major sticking point with shopping overseas is the Exchange rate.
Before you shop, you should double check just how much you are going to spend. In the recent past, when I bought from the Euro Zone, The exchange rate between the Euro and the Canadian Dollar was quite high. Buying German, Euro, is buying at a pretty penny.
Though the quality of German made clothing is exceptional.
This was another successful get of a European made product, not found on local regional NIKE sales points in the U.S. or Canada.
Thank You Mario for the style.
I wanna be like Mario …
