A Review On Sneaker Stores

What Store Do You Buy Your Sneakers From?

Everywhere I look, I find another store selling sneakers.  So what I did was visit these stores to see what brands, styles, colors, and most of all price.   Each store, depending on how big they were, had displays of sneakers, either just on low shelves and in boxes, or just thrown on the top of the shelf.  So now when you need a size and width, you have to go through all the boxes on the shelves and find the brand, style and size you want.

When you open some of the boxes, not only is the wrong brand in it but the color is purple instead of white or black.  This is why I say you are better off buying sneakers online.  At least you have a choice of sneaker you are looking to put on your feet.  It is the only place you will find all of the brands, styles, sizes you would want to wear.

Now there are a lot of stores online to look through also.  They could be from all over the world nowadays.  The major stores would be your best bet to buy something from.  I am sure youhave bought things online before, so buying sneakers online shouldn’t be to hard.  Make sure you buy them from your area, not from a country you would have to pay an arm and a leg to return if you had to.  Just remember these ratings are my personal opinion.  Some of the major stores would be:

Kohl’s is a department store that has everything.  They carry men’s, women’s, children’s and toddlers clothes.  Also besides sneakers, they have jewelry, bedding and even toys from 0 to 14 year old children.  This is only to name a couple of things, their stores could not hold everything they sell online.  Their prices on things, I would rate them about a 3.5 out of 5 star.

Target is another department store that could be found all over the place.  They also carry a tremendous amount of women’s clothes, home goods, and outdoor furniture.  The best bet is also online, because the stores are not big enough to fit all the products in each store. The prices in Target would be about the same as Kohl’s, about a 3.5 out of 5 star.

Walmart happens to be one of the giants in the industry.  You name it, they have it.  Sneakers, sporting goods, house wears to men, women and children’s clothes.  Anything you could think of for the bedroom, plus they now sell food in their stores, like a supermarket.  They feel that you only have to shop in one place for everything.  I don’t think you could get the food online yet. Walmart’s prices are a little lower then the two stores above for things, but the food could be a little higher. My rating would be about a 4.0 out of 5 star.

Amazon is just starting to open stores around the country.  They are getting into everything and can ship overnight.  They have started their own shipping instead of using UPS, FedEx, or the Mail System.  They have everything online you could imagine, from soup to nuts, as they say.  From clothes to pharmaceutical pills, all online.  I would give them a 4.5 out of 5 star rating.

Finish Line has been around with their stores for a long time.  Their main business is selling sneakers.  With over 900 stores in 47 states, they have what ever you would be looking for in sneakers.  They also sell men, women and children’s apparel and accessories.  They tell you on their site to “Stay in the Loop” and will give you the updates on the new brands coming out.  On the sneaker end I would rate them 4.0 out of 5 star.

Foot Locker has stores in most of the large malls.  Have all the brands and styles you would want.  They let everyone know  the dates when new sneakers are coming out.  Just go online here and check it out.  Their stores have been around since 1974 and had been taken over by Woolworth’s in 1988.  They are even on the Stock Market. I would rate them at a 4.0 out of 5 stars because they have a lot of stores with great sneakers.

Inkkas sells sneakers online with the star wars ensemble.  They also have hiking and camping boots.  For the girls they have very colorful slip on’s.  At the bottom of their page they always have sneakers for you on clearance. Coming up with Kicks also.  You definitely have to see some of the sneakers they have for sale, very Kool. Giving them a 4.5 out of 5 star rating, only because some of their prices are a little high.  Come see for yourself.

Zappos is an affiliate of Amazon.  This is a online company out of Las Vegas, Nevada.  Everything Zappos sells has free delivery and free returns.  This is a good thing, since people feel they will be paying too much if they have to pay shipping also.  Even with Amazon, most of their things you have to pay for shipping unless you have Prime with them.  I would give Zappos a 4.9 out of 5 stars since shipping is free.

Payless Shoe stores are also in most of the malls.  Their online store has all kinds of sneakers, pocketbooks, socks, sales and discounts on their clearance sandals for the summer.  Sunglasses, tights and Christian Siriano shoes and handbags.  Some nice pumps or maybe a pair of kitten heels, as they call them.  Great sales and discounts.  Giving them a 4.8 out of 5 star rating.

Online Shoes is exactly what it says, they sell sneakers online. With the Online Shoes there is no shipping charges and free returns.  Sometimes they have 60 to 70% off on different times of the year.  They also have clothing for men and women, with sneakers, boots and sandals for boys and girls.  This could be the place for you.  Their website is very easy to deal with.  I would give them a 4.9 out of 5 star rating.

Steve Madden had sneakers, shoes, boots and accessories for women and men in the United States and Canada.  They mostly advertise the knee high boot for women.  They look awesome, you definitely need to check their website out.  Having Jewelry, Hats and Scarfs, Socks and Tights, Sunglasses and Handbags.  They even carry phone cases and tech. A rating of 4.8 out of 5 star rating is really underestimating them.

Gucci is more on the high end of the spectrum.  Everyone would love to have a pair of sneakers or an accessory from Gucci.  When I looked up some of the prices, WOW.  There is no way to get a Gucci bag, sneakers or accessories without the exorbitant price.  If you can afford these things, it would be awesome. You might be able to get a used item in EBAY.  I would definitely give Gucci a 5 out of 5 star rating.  Be careful, there are a lot of phony’s out there.
