    Hi my fellow mac users,
    I was wondering if anyone shops online, because I find it so convenient. Well i'm looking for these air max 95 all black, i've looked on ebay they never seem to have my size. They just don't make shoes like them anymore. I need you guys to leave me some legit websites that sell preferably nike air max 95 or 97.

    Thank You!

    Edit: Sorry, the Dick's Sporting Goods doesn't sell that particular model. I've also had good luck with EastBay.

    Dude wouldnt you rather actually hit a shop and try no a pair? See if they fit perfectly and walk about? From personal experience just cos the shoe says size 9 doesnt mean its gonna agree with your foot.

    Agreed. I've been anything from a 10 to a 12 depending on the shoe. Formal shoes are the worst offenders here, whereas trainers are much more reliable. Also the width of the shoe is important. Sometimes a shoe could be your size but end up too narrow or wide.

    I'd definately check it out in an actual store first. Once you've checked it out you can always then buy it online if it's cheaper.

    what size do you need? We have a few of the 95s in all black at the store I work at. Air Max 95 can be a tough one to find. We also have some Air Max 97s black & silver. Although I do not find them comfortable at all. We have a fair amount of sizes in the 97s.

    Also, if you like the Air Max 95, you could also look at some of the Nike Tailwinds. They have a similiar feel, and the Air Max Solas is very nice as well.

    Also, Zappos doesnt seem to carry any Nike Products.

    zappos has free shipping, but they also have free return. you print out a return thing from the site, stick iton the box you got the shoes in, and return it... easy. so if you can't find them in a store, and zappos has em, you can pretty easily test them out that way....

    zappos also has a 365 day return policy... and the frequently upgrade your shipping! I ordered a pair of Ugg boots w/ the free standard 4-5 business day shipping (still pretty quick I think) and was pleasantly surprised by a free upgrade to 2 day shipping! :D

    I love shoes. Have a bit of an obsession with them. I don't own too many pairs of shoes, but I definitely have more than 5 pairs (excluding my 3-4 pairs of sandals/Birks and thongs).

    I was looking for size 10.5 US. Anyways what store do you work at. I feel the same way about the air max 97's. I live in Canada, I don't know if that would be a problem.

    I want to thank you and everybody else that helped me.

    I work for Finishline. I think the 95s we have are smaller 7,8 and one pair of 12's. If the online place is reputable, I would order from them. $69.99 is not bad. Just make sure they are not fakes. A very big problem that not many people know about.

    Well having a real sample to compare it to is the best method. Also knowing which colors were produced, and carefully inspecting each part of the shoe, looking for variations, or incorrect colors. There are websites you can check out as well. www.niketalk.com is a good one.

    Nike just released a the History of Air collection, in which, they released the original Air Max '95 colorway, Black/gray/green. Not my favorite color, and at 139.99 its pretty pricey, but if you want the shoe... you should be able to find most of the shoes online right now.

    I like RoadRunner sports. They have a great return policy (you can wear them for 30 days and return them if you don't like them) and great customer service.

    Zappos is awesome, their shipping is nuts, I got next day delivery once for free!

    Also they have a great selection including Macbeth, which is all I wear except my running shoes, or sketchers boots.

    I just have to throw in another good word for zappos.com. I ordered a pair of shoes on a Monday night at about 10:00PM and selected the standard free ground shipping. I checked my email the next day at about noon to get the tracking number for my package, and it had already been delivered to my doorstep! Zappos upgraded me to free overnight shipping and it took me about 12 hours to get the shoes after I placed my order. Talk about service!

    Zappos.

    Swapped size problems in under a week.

    Check out the shoe locally, make sure you know the model/coloring. If you like it. Buy it from Zappos knowing itll fit.
