As Black Friday disappears in the rear-view mirror and Cyber Monday is only hours away, now is an appropriate time to take a look at Christmas shopping the age of the Internet, smart phones, tablets, and yes even CrossFit Shoes.
For someone who has never really enjoyed the experience of shopping, the advent of digital stores was the best Christmas present anyone could ever ask for. From the moment I step into retail stores I begin to feel a tightening in my back, right between my shoulder blades, and I quickly begin looking for an exit.
Now with shops like Amazon.com, Overstock.com, and any number of traditional retailer’s online sites, I no longer have to leave the comfort of my home to do any shopping at all. Well, with the exception of grocery shopping, but I actually enjoy that.
And with very few exceptions this is exactly how I operate. One of those exceptions would have to be clothes and shoes. I do prefer to be able to try clothing on before I purchase it. And if I go through all the trouble of trying it on, I’ll generally buy it at the same brick and mortar store.
The same goes with shoes. I was recently looking for a good CrossFit shoe as I’ve worn out my old pair of cross trainers. Generally speaking, the best prices are to be found online. But I really don’t enjoy the hassle of having to return something if I don’t guess correctly on the size. So I went down to my local Dick’s Sporting Goods to try them on first. They had a wide variety of Crossfit sneakers for men, so I was able to find a pair I liked.
In this particular instance my trip was very rewarding as the shoes were actually less expensive in the stores than they were online. This is a very rare occurrence, but one of which I am more than happy to take advantage. You can find all sorts of deals on CrossFit equipment at efficientgains.com.
