STEALin'

As a sneakerhead who's always trying to keep it in control and remind herself, that no one needs to own that many pairs of shoes I always enjoy steals for different reasons.

1. You know you haven't overpayed.
2. It's always cool to save that extra coin.
3. My guilty conciensce isn't as loud as Eminem in that song.
4. It always feels like an accomplishment when you get a steal. You know what I'm talking about....Come on...you know what I talk about 😏
So there are many ways to go with that bargain flow.

1. Clearance Hustle
Going to clearance stores can literally be a hassle. You drive out somewhere for many minutes, are ready to spend some money and then suddenly, oh snap, nothing that's worth actually spending it on. Only old, trash sneakers no one wants in sizes no one can wear. Hold on, what if that's actually your size? You are either very small or tall? Well then go to that clearance store and find a lot of dope stuff.

2. Have Patience
There's a thing about patience - I don't have any. Seriously. No. Patience. At. All. Ask any person who I've ever texted with in my life and took more than 5 to answer. Wait... Yeah, they are gone. Out of my circle. I can't with y'all. I JUST CAN'T!
I have the patience of a 3 years old at a grocery store. A cranky one. Who's standing in the candy section... Except for when it comes to shoes. I have I'm between a size 8 and 8.5 which are the sizes who are too big for women and too small for man and often go on clearance. 6 out of 10 times the store still has a last pair of something. And it's probably a size 8 or 8.5 and we all know stores want to get rid of last pairs and cut the prize on those. So patience is key. They don't want us to win. They don't want us to buy cheap kicks. Sorry... I got carried away. WE THE BEST MUSIC... Sorry... had to.

Nike Air Trainer Max '94 PRM QS EA Sports - 60 € instead of 160 (on eBay for 250)

3. Be Nice
This might be underrated as heck, but be nice to the employes. If they see that you are a nice customer they will want to satisfy you and have you coming back. So treat others how you want to be treaten. Golden rule and ish... you know...dropping gems today. Grab a pen and a sheet and take notes, youngster.

4. Be Loyal To a Store
This one kinda has to do with number 3. If you always go to the same store ( that doesn't go through 7 employes a week ) you might be treated differently after a few times visiting. Have a chat, say hi and come back if you like the store and you'll build an almost friendly relationship which will lead to having a plug and maybe someone informing you about heat buried somewhere. Or they'll go an find something for you. Plus you get to know new people that you actually like and are sneakerheads as well.  WIN!
