    Charlotte convention center at Independence Blvd and Briarcreek road. It ends Sunday night though so hurry!

    Also it has been going on since THursday morning so alot of goodies might be gone. That being said they put out more stuff each night but as you would expect, first come first serve

    Of course not, the guy on the phone said "we have 4 left in size 9".

    And I was like: "Put them all in the box and send that **** out RIGHT NOW."

    I called many Nike factory/outlet before finding one that had ANY V9 in my size.

    I posted in the other thread that in-season shoes are just too expensive. The lack of 6months warranty/guarantee, and the way I wear my shoes just isn't cost-effective for me to spend $130 a pair.

    So I've gotten into the habit of hunting down out-of-season colorways. It just so happened the "Purple Flame Pack" being my favorite and they had them in stock.

    My friend went to Vegas a long time ago and told me that they're selling the flame vapors and the 2k12s. But he forgot where he found it at. So, I guess I went to the wrong Nike store to find the flame vapors

    They had some K-Swiss Monfils Big Shots at Ross in Orlando for $30. I bought a pair but haven't used them yet. I didn't hear great things about them, but for $30 I'll take the gamble.

    If you get them cheap, I dont see why not take a gamble on shipping money and try it out, they should do it though.

    Absolutely you can. You have to remember that Marshall's etc. are retail resell so the shoes were bought and paid for the first time around by whoever the supplier was for Marshall's at the time they purchased them. You cost has no bearing on your ability to receive the warranty. Just hold on to that receipt!

    Yes, just pay for the shipping.

    And yes on the style + color # code too.

    You rocked it! Good for you...I love those stores for the bargains. Here's my glitch...I must teach Summers in white only. With sweat, lotion and deodorant markings it's impossible to keep things crisply white! I know its also impossible to find cool modern clothing in white at good prices. But keep your eyes peeled...you have a good eye for style and bargains.

    Just go to the General Pro Player forums, get sucked into some nonsense discussion, and your post count will jump in no time. :)

    Not apparel, but also nice find in Guam. Went there 2 years ago and bought 6 packs of Babolat VS Gut at $29 each at a sporting shop in the mall.

    Not a sale, just mad hunting skills across the country for the remaining stock of out-of-season shoes.

    I've been successful since the release of Vapor 8's. :)

    With the way I burn through shoes, and my stubbornness to remain with the Vapor line, it's far more economical for me to buy the out-of-seasons shoes.

    I find Marshall's the best and most consistent. There's a Super Marshalls about 1.5 hours from me and that's even better.

    TJ Maxx and Ross can be great, but those stores in my city are terrible. They're small and they've cut way back on mens clothing. But, again, there's a bigger city within 1.5 hours with plenty of better TJ Maxx and Ross stores.

    That's a pretty good find. I have never seen Vapor 9s to go for that low. Maybe only in size 15 or something!

    Got this shirt from The Bay (Germany) equivalent to around $48 (!). Not really sure, but someone said this will be Federer's shirt for the 2013 US Open.

    I slide on hard court, does that mean I'm destined to win Roland Garros eventually? :)

    I can dream at least, right?

    Yeah I'm waiting on Macy's to stock the Spring 2013 line, then wait for it to go on one of those 50-75% off sale :)

    That's how I got my Nike US Open 2012 night polo :)

    Here, Macy's carries Izod tennis apparel (well it's not actually 'tennis' it's golf but whatever).

    They always get marked on clearence for $17.99.

    I actually got an extra 15% off at the cashier, so it came out to be $12.xx

    It's not an RF shirt. However, minus the RF logo, it looks and feels like my US Open 2012 night polo, which I also got from Macy's for 70% off earlier. Finally, for $12, I'm not complaining. :)

    I may have seen this polo on some European sites, I can't remember.

    Honestly, as far as I'm concerned, it's identical to the US Open 2012 night polo. But in white and no RF logo (even better, I hate wearing his logo, no offense to hardcore Federer fans)

    And it came out to be $12, can't pass up on a discount like that son.
