Cheap shoe alert! (Read 633 times)

    Also the Hoka Mach, if you're one of the 2 or 3 other people on earth besides me for whom that shoe is perfect. It's 79 on RW tight now. (I got it for 67 with a secret discount code that I can't share but I'd say try all the codes you know about.)

    It's a setup

      +1. These things seem to defy physics. Also seem to be an above average snow shoe with the wider platform and tall stack. Totally worth it @79 and super bargain @ anything less.

            Do you recommend? I’ve wanted to try Hokas for a while. I’ve been a loyal ghost runner for a long time but need to try something different.

             

            Update: Not available to my local Ross. I did however buy some Cliftons today (not at Ross).

                  Ross Dress For Less also have been getting a few Men's Nike Zoom Fly fly-knit, $45. NOT the 4%, just the regular ZoomFly with React foam and a full carbon plate. Sparse, I only saw a few sizes.

                      Nike Zoom Fly FK, SP, standard, and that one with numbers for a name that is suspiciously like an athleisure shoe

                      SF Bay Area Ross stores

                      $45-55

                      Several sizes and colors

                       

                      Playing around with them, the standard and FK (flyknit) are really stiff, and have "full length carbon plate" written on them. I don't think these shoes are for ME, but they're intriguing because of the weight and cushion. If they get down to $30 I might try a pair.

                        Google maps says I have one nearby so I’ll will head there this weekend. I can’t imagine too many people buying fly knits in winter.

                          It's always a sale at UnderArmour Outlet...I mean Ross...

                            It's always a sale at UnderArmour Outlet...I mean Ross...

                             

                            I'm jealous. I haven't been to the Ross near me in forever because it was just junk. Marshalls & TJ Maxx have a much better selection. Maybe I need to give them another chance, if any Ross should have Under Armour, it should be one 10 miles from the UA HQ.

                             

                            One store I found by accident this fall was Sierra. It used to be the Sierra Trading Post and they had great deals back in the 1990s.

                              At the Ross around me, 60-70% of the athletic shoes are Under Armour. I assume UA makes stuff just to sell to Ross/Marshalls/etc.

                              There are 5 Ross in a 5 mile stretch near me, next to stores I shop at weekly so I pop in and check the running shoes often. Lots of great deals over the years keeps me coming back, even when I have a 2-3 month drought.

                                Sierra and TJMAXX (and Home Goods) are all one company. Those stores are all frequently full of great finds.
