    Where do you guys shop for shoes? Everyone recommends Eastbay, but they never have my size for anything that's decent. Same with Foot Locker and Champs.

    I went to the Nike outlet in Sparks, NV a couple of weeks ago at opening and they didn't have one size 14 in the store. Not one! I have better luck finding shoes at Ross and Marshall's.

    Eastbay/Foot Locker/Champs are all technically the same company (I think). If I don't pick up anything from those stores or the SNKRS app, I usually go to Finish Line. StockX is my last resort, and only if I'm really desperate.

    Finish Line... Several years ago, I went to that store in the local mall and asked an employee if they had a Jordan shoe in a 14. He started laughing. The little bastard didn't say, "Let me check the back" or we may have these online or anything. He just laughed. I gave him an evil glare, turned my back and walked out. I should have choke slammed his punk ass. Never went back after that.

    Sheikh sometimes has my size, but I heard people say that they sometimes sell KO's. Not sure if there's any truth to that, but I've heard that a few times and the question has been asked a bunch online.

    Eastbay used to be the only place I'd get shoes. I wear size 15 btw. But I rarely use them at all now. Since they changed their website, I absolutely hate shopping on there, it's super annoying to navigate imo. Basically nike.com and the SNKR app are my go to these days.
