Fake shoes at Footlocker?

We were out at the Avenues yesterday. It was so freaking hot. Anyways, we stopped by Footlocker looking for shoes for the kids. They had a lot of shoes for 10 KD or less. Not bad huh? Well upon looking closer at the Puma shoes I saw glue and the leather looked plastic. I know there are fake shoes everywhere here but at Footlocker?

I noticed the same thing with some Nike shoes I bought on sale too. I could see glue on the shoes and they didn't feel real. No problem as the Indian mover guy stole those shoes anyways :P Has anyone else noticed this with some of the shoes on sale? Would Footlocker actually sell fake products? I wouldn't be shocked if they did.

The saleswoman bugged the hell out of me. I wasn't sure what size I wanted so I was in my own little shopping world until she insisted on helping me. What size are you looking for? The size is written on the box. I know, I know, I know!!!!!!!! When I need help I will ask you! Then she was hovering around me as I touched a box she would fix it. Hello!!!!! Personal Space!!!!! I guess they are used to people who don't know much and just point to things.

I'm American and I know what I'm doing! When I need help I'll ask!

  3. What is with these shop assistants? Why do they persist in following you round the store,right on your heels, then rearranging and tidying everything that you look at? It is soooo rude, not too mention extremely aggravating. Let me look at things in my own way, and, IF I require assistance, I will ask you. Also, what's with the clearing of plates/glasses as soon as you take the last bite/sip? Get some proper retail training guys, please!!

  4. Write something bad about America. Everyone has an opinion big deal. I don't take offense to it. I'm mean? Thanks, I do my best to bother people, it's fun getting under people's skin and having them react.

  5. uggh, I know what you mean about the people following you around. I'm generally a nice person, but I finally told one lady that if she wanted me to buy something she needed to back off. She didn't, I left the store. So now if someone follows me around like a puppy dog, I immediately leave and buy my stuff somewhere else. I agree, "I'm American and I know what I'm doing! When I need help I'll ask!" jeeze!

  6. Its sad that product in Kuwait is fake and companies don't get prosecuted for it, so they don't feel there is a risk for it.

    Luckily I don't buy shoes except once every blue moon!

  7. I wonder if they buy fakes or just settle for inferior products (what are they called?) I hate when sales people do that, too and will also leave if they hover and annoy me too much! I really hate when they hold clothes up to you....grrr, go away! "You're mean!" Bahahaha! They should teach sales people to recognize what people need instead of hovering like a pest over everyone, so many stores have missed out on a sale because of this!

  9. Guys, Footlocker merchandise is 100% real. They're priced like this because they sign exclusivity deals with the companies so they can sell them at low prices. There's a sale on now, go check out their stock. And the employees are nice and kind now.

  11. Not if the host doesn't know what's going on. I was pointing out the quality of the shoes, glue all over and that's why I was wondering if they were fake.

    1. I was going to reply about the "fake at footlocker" subject, but the last paragraph made me not want to; however, I will relpay to your idiocy.

      It's great being proud of who you are and where you come from, but it is not when you think you are better than everyone else. "I guess they are used to people who don't know much and just point to things," this not an opinion or an observation, this bluntly being disrespectful to the people who welcomed you in their country.

      You said you like to get under people's skin. It's easy to do so when you are being disrespectful and ignorant. For example, you have kids, so don't call yourself "California "girl" " in the "about me section," you should say a fat old California Women. You're a women you have a small brain so you are dumb. I didn't even disrespect the US or the people of the US, so I can go on and on. Just like I said, it's easy.

      I'm not saying Kuwait is perfect or Kuwaity people are, but don't be ignorant and don't bite the hand that feeds you.

    2. "California Women. You're a women you have a small brain so you are dumb." Your spelling sucks, learn English before you try to write a big paragraph that's above your comprehension. YAWN!

    3. Nice!! "Your spelling sucks." What a comeback. I'm trilingual and English is my third language. I thin one word out of a paragraph great.
      How many do you speak? My assumption is 1.
      This is my last reply because I noticed that you are too immature to talk to. I said what I had to say in the 1st reply. Bye

    4. If you said what you had to say in the first reply why do you continue to spam my blog. I think it's time to start deleting useless arguments.

  12. Try to shop online, I think you can choose the best design of your shoes when you find it online. Like me, I always buy a secondhand shoes on this website http://www.boex.tv/ because they are selling a good quality secondhand shoes.
