Retail Sales Points:

One of my favorite past times is shopping. Because that’s what you do when your Keto Diet drops your weight over 35 pounds down, and I need to look GOOD !

I’ve often wrote towards specific sales points as being the most optimum locations to shop, because of security, availability of product, and sellers who are honest.

I’ve shopped online with sites located on the web, where those sites were fronts for counterfeiters located in Shanghai China. That happened to me twice, with a loss of over $300.00 CAD that I had to recoup from the R.C.M.P. (Royal Canadian Mounted Police)

I won’t shop on a site that is not reputable, or shop from a site that I have not shopped at before. Listed above are sites I would recommend shopping at, given what you are looking for, the list is varied and popular.

I usually troll my Tumblr and Instagram or Pinterest for product. I then take that photo and plug it into Google search. That search usually takes me to a site where the product is sold.

Proviso … Google does not moderate the sites that are online. They do not secure a site in the sense that not every site online is a secure, reputable, product seller. Buyer Beware.

But if I am on the hunt for something particular, I’ve learned from experience, if it ain’t available on a platform, and I cannot find it on a reputable site, I won’t buy from a site that looks too slick or too good to be true.

Odd sneakers or one-off styles you might see on an athlete, let’s say on Tumblr or Pinterest, that is probably a one off, even if a slick site has them in stock in the colorway and style you really want. Buyer Beware …

Athletes get shoes and sneakers made, one-off all the time, by Name Brand shoe sales like Adidas and Nike and Mizuno and others.

And some purveyors of shoes, take these images and load them into a slick site and attempt to scam you into buying them, knowing that they really do not exist for mass consumption by the public.

Sites in China and in Asia, the counterfeiters hide behind slick-looking websites with reputable locators like (CO.UK / or CO.AU/ or a North American/CANADIAN DOT COM)

Their sites might look slick with lots of product, but from my experience, I got the same knock off product twice, from TWO sites online, that came from the SAME counterfeit address in Shanghai, China.

If you’ve never bought from a site before, it behooves you to check your sources and see if there are comments or complaints on the site, and if you are not sure, then your first choice is a local selling platform like AMAZON or EBAY or a reputable CO.UK CO.AU.

If you are buying from a platform like EBAY – you can select selling locations. You just need to be aware of the local currency conversion for your location.

Amazon does not always specify where the seller is but they give you a price. Once you make your purchase you find out where that product is coming from.

I’ve bought reputable items from South Korea before, on Amazon Global.

Stay Away from anything sold in China. Because you never know if the product you are buying on a site is the real item or a counterfeit.

The Canadian RCMP is actively seeking legal action on many counterfeit sites in China and Shanghai. I found that out after getting burned by Shanghai gangsters.

Be a savvy shopper. Know your websites. Scrutinize those websites if they seem too good to be true. Because if it looks slick and the products sold look to be the same styles High End athletes wear on the pitch … You might be scammed …

Just be careful with your money …
