So I decide to scroll through the Sub-Reddit group r/sneakermarket which I am a member to see what was for sale and if I could find any good deals.
Admittedly, I was not on there looking for the Sacai Blazers HOWEVER, to my surprise as I continued to look I saw someone selling them in my size for retail and shipping!
My first move though was to look at the sellers profile and Reddit presence to get a sense of security about who I was about to potentially do business with. Being as this was my first time using Reddit as an option to purchase anything I wanted to make sure I did my homework.
After determining the seller seemed to be legit I immediately reached out. The response back from them was almost instantaneous.
We discussed the price for the shoes as well as the cost of shipping, since they were located in California.
To keep it 100, I went to Stockx to do a price comparison including their fees. Buying from Stockx would have cost me an extra $8.00 AND delivery time anywhere from 7-14 days depending on where they were shipping from. Based upon that and the seller's reputation on Reddit I quickly struck a deal.
Fast forward to July 6th to my surprise when I had a package on my door step.
According to the shipping I wasn't supposed to receive the shoes until July 7th but it seems Christmas came early.
