People do not know the struggle I am going through when I try to shop for clothes or basketball shoes. For clothes, if I want them to be long enough, I have to buy 3-xl or sometimes 4-xl. But the problem here is that I am not large, I am just tall. However, finding clothes to wear is not as a big of a problem as finding shoes.
Whenever I walk in to a store, I don’t even bother looking around. I go straight to the front desk and ask “What is your biggest shoe size in the store?” With a confused look they say that they have size 14 maybe size 15. For those who do not know, I wear size 17. That’s 51.5 EU. You can imagine that it is pretty hard to find. And if by any miracle they do have a size 17 shoe in the store… it looks like one that has been sitting on the shelf since 1996.
But at manelsanchez.com it was totally different. When I asked if they have size 17 they said yes. In my mind I thought they maybe had 2 or 3 pairs. When I asked if I can see them, they told me to go choose a model from the shelf and they will bring my size from the back. Now I was the one that was confused.
Can you tell how confused I was? Like I said above, in some stores, I would have only one option. At manselsanchez.com I had more than 10. Different models, different colors, I just did not know what to buy. I ended up buying the Air Jordan 1 Low “Lightweight” for the streets, the Jordan Super Fly 2017 Blake Griffin “North Carolina” because it matches very well with our home jerseys, the Adidas Dame 5 “All Skate” to match the away jerseys, and the Puma Uproar Hybrid Court Core “White Meta” to practice with.
