NIKE WMNS AIR TROUPE MID ASTER PINK/BLACK ??? ????? ?? ????? ??? 324922-601 (http://abcgaga.com/products-d9126.html)

These shoes! It's a 2008-2010 (I'm not sure) model! And of course I can't find it anywhere! After HOURS of searching I found it at this website but I don't understand anything (google translator doesn't help much. it can't translate the clickable buttons) and I need to know if it's reliable etc. :( I really really want these!

It seems to be a Japan- (or Asia-)only model, and it's sold out everywhere (or almost everywhere).

You could try asking for help on Japanese expats sites (expats usually know their English very well).


I've found another model that looks similar and that one seems to be still available:
Nike Wmns Air Feather High Vivid Pink (407904-601) - www.90q.info (http://www.90q.info/Nike-Others/Nike-Wmns-Air-Feather-High-Vivid-Pink--407904-601--2306.html)

What's that supposed to mean? I'm not Swedish anyway. I'm Greek living in Sweden since September 2010 and studying here. I'm making about 150 euros a month (working on Saturdays) and the rest is coming from my parents in Greece. So I can't say I have money...

What is expats?

And thanks for trying but I want the specific model I posted. Nike Air Troupe. If I had money I'd buy it in almost every color. lol

O, you're still very young (and Greek).

It's very expensive to import something from Japan. The international shipping costs from Japan are high, AND you will most likely have to pay custom duties / import taxes.

What are expats? Google is your best friend :)

23 in May. Doesn't sound "very young" unless you're 80 or something. :lol:

You know how to crush someone's dreams, don't you? Alright people! Let's start a fundraiser! Pay me some money!

Funny thing. I'm a mod in another forum and every time someone asks something I just reply by posting google's link! :lol: Boomerang!
I guess I'm an expat!

Yeah, you're 'sort of an expat', except that you're student and don't work in the foreign country :)

In a few months when you window shop (=just looking, not buying) on the internet again, you will find another pair of shoes that looks like a must-buy-item. It's a never ending process.

Expat is something like "expatriot".....somebody who comes from the other country.....

Yeah but you see this isn't something that will go away as the time goes by. I'm talking about these specific shoes. I already have this model in another color. First time I saw it, Alcazar were wearing it. Again, I was too late looking for it. I was looking for it last year actually. Trying to identify the model by videos and photos was the most difficult thing but I found it. And after a while I got really lucky coz someone was selling them on ebay and they were my size! So I bought them. And I have to say that these are the lightest and more comfortable shoes I've ever worn.

When I first found out about the model I had seen those pink ones as well. So I was looking for either the pink ones or the ones I got now. And I got 'em. As I said, if I had money I'd buy lots of them. I love this model and it's not even that beautiful! :lol:

OK, so it's not just because they look great and you want them in a particular colour. You also need these because of their fit. Hmm yes, could be problematic if your feet are very choosy :lol:

I know the problem because for example last year I was looking for an Adidas model of 2010 in the color black, but it was sold out almost everywhere. Some shops only had the women's version in back. Even though I didn't find them, I've survived :p

Unfortunately we currently do not have any active Japanese members, maybe this post will encourage some of them to register :D

It's not my feet that are choosy. I have a thing with shoes! I'm not that picky with jeans (oh well how different can they be? :p) or tops but with shoes... It's actually the first thing I check on someone! :lol:

And I could survive if I couldn't find them anywhere. I would probably keep looking every now and then though. Just as I did now! But unlike you, I found them! ;)
