Nike Cross Training Shoes: Fly Zoom Quick Sister
Believe it or not, I lost my running shoes.Â I am not sure where I misplaced it.Â I must have thrown it to the garbage bin because when I go to the gym, I wrap it in plastic.Â I must have thought it was trash and threw it away @_@.Â Anyway, it almost hindered me from achieving my goal â€“ to finally get a gym membership.Â I mean, how can you go to the gym without shoes?
Vince and I went to Vivere Salon in Robinsonâ€™s Place Ermita and while he was still getting his hair cut, I roamed around looking for shoes.Â I got so excited of finally going to the gym and I bought these shoes even if it is a bit out of my budget.Â I am not entirely sure, but they seem to sell shoes at the department store more cheaper than the one in a boutique.Â I went to one and compared the prices, the boutique was selling it at Php 5,000 ++ while I bought this for only P 4,300.Â It still supposedly is out of my budget but since I donâ€™t want to have any excuse not to go to the gym and since I need a good shoes for training (running and gym) I decided to buy it in a snap!
The shoes are meant for training.Â They shaped the foot sole to have diamond clusters for flexibility and adaptability to whatever activity I am conducting.Â You can also plug in your Nike Plus if you have one and since I donâ€™t have one, I am planning to buy I also have an iPod nano that supports Nike Plus with that application on the net so that definitely is on my to-buy list.
Here are the pictures of my unboxing Oh, donâ€™t mind the bunnyâ€¦ He was just trying to cam-whore with me.Â He was hopping around while I was taking shots of me wearing the shoes so yeahâ€¦ Itâ€™s nice to have some cute bunny as an accessory
So, I was editing these photos when I noticed something:
I was likeâ€¦ waitâ€¦ does that number â€œ5â€ mean itâ€™s a size 5???
I donâ€™t really know how they put those sizes on the boxes and what not but I was pretty sure I was a size 6!Â Â Actually, 5 and a half to be exact, but I usually get the size 6. That explained why the shoes were a little bit uncomfortable.Â I was so FRAZZLED then because I asked the sales clerk a thousand times if they were size 6 because it was a little bit tight on my feet!Â I swear I remembered the sales clerk looking at the box to check and looked at me straight and said â€œyes maam, size 6 po itoâ€ try no nalang ulit ito.
I tried it again, it fit just right like exactly right â€“ no allowance or what not!
So I asked for him to give me a size 7 because I though, if size 6 for Nike is a bit small for me, then I must try the size 7!Â And so I did, but guess what â€“ size 7 was too big for me!!! and so, I asked again â€œSir, are you sure this is a size 6?â€ â€“ â€œYes maam, size 6 po.Â Luluwag pa naman po yan mam.â€
I am really sure I was size 6 and when he said it was, I believed himâ€¦ I mean I did not expect him to lie or what not!Â And so, I paid for it ~_~â€™ yadda yadda yaddaâ€¦
I was so erratic because it was such an inconvenience!Â I had to go back again to the store and have it exchanged!Â And you know how much of a pain in the ass it is here in the Philippines to exchange stuff.Â But still, I know that wearing the wrong size could harm me so I drove all the way againâ€¦
The sales clerk who sold me the shoes wasnâ€™t there.Â Instead, other sales guys from Nike were there.Â They confirmed â€“ it is a size 5! @_@ I told them what happened and they were so apologetic.Â I know it wasnâ€™t their fault so I didnâ€™t give them any attitude.Â I was just happy that I could return it â€“ thank GOODness!Â Turns out, they didnâ€™t have any stock of size 6 anymore!Â I was a bit furious and I said â€œBakit naman magsisinungaling yon sa akin?â€ (Why would he lie about the shoe size?)Â I was a bit pissed because I wanted that design so bad but I canâ€™t wear a size 5 nor a 7â€¦ and they didnâ€™t refund neither.Â I donâ€™t know if you can actually do â€“ well there was a little bit of â€œfraudâ€ there right?Â I was fooled!Â Therefore, the contract of sale is supposedly did not happen â€¦ but I was at fault to because one condition for the contract to be null is that the other party (me) exercised due diligence to make sure the sale was legit.Â I didnâ€™t check for myself what size it was!
(sorry about that, the accountant in me is coming outâ€¦ we studied some law units and contracts are included)
anyway, I had to exchange it with another item.Â I didnâ€™t mind.Â I just want my shoes. I really liked the design of this one, but I like the design of the new shoes I bought too!Â I liked it more because I like the contrast of colors and it had a little bit of platform base (about half an inch) that would make me look taller It was more expensive than this one too *haiz* so I had to make extra payment
