    Default looking for a specific pair of Nikes

    I know there are alot of sneaker heads on here, so I figured I'd ask. I've been to every big box store and also Lexington Ave to see if they have this shoe, but I can only find it online and some stores in Vancouver.

    if anyone knows where I can find the Air Max Zero "Ultramarine" locally, it would be greatly appreciated.

    you can try less17 on 17th ave. They have a few air max zero's in stock, but not sure if ultramarine colorway is available.

    Ultramarine is already available on the Nike site. No need to nikeid it. My guess is he doesn't want to wait.

    One quick suggestion is footlocker website, if they have it there you can search to see if it's in stock locally (hint: it never is haha).

    Locally will be difficult...

    As was suggested with Foot Locker, if they have stock across Canada they can send it to your store of choice no charge...

    But Livestock out of Vancouver will be your best bet unfortunately...

    Ya footlocker is a no go, but livestock has them, but they're who I was talking about in Van. I'll check out less17 and f not, I'll bite the bullet with livestock.

    Thumbs up

    I'm no sneakerhead or whatever, but I've got to ask, what's the uniqueness or reason it's so special. I did a google image search and i don't get it...?

    Hey
    they're not for everyone, but it's the first time they've released this type of colorway for the AMZ and I like it better than any of the other ones, so there's that.

    they're not overly special, but they're only limited to certain places (obviously), which makes them a bit more special than the rest.

    You can't find these locally. Unless someone sells their pair to The Ave, you won't see them here. Most stores in Calgary, including Foot Locker don't have Quickstrike/Tier One accounts (or good ones anyways) because the accounts are expensive to hold and the market is too small for anything other than Jordans. Mostly because the Calgary scene is mostly comprised of Hypebeasts, kids or people who don't know anything about the footwear culture.

    Ultramarine/Infrared has been a staple colorway in Nike footwear since the Air 180 in the 90s. Popular for vintage Nike heads. The Zero pays homage to one of the original colorways that made Nike running popular. It's also a Quickstrike colorway, meaning only available for stores who pay for those accounts, is fairly limited in full size runs and no specific drop date.

    Damn you Cory, you got me looking at NikeId. Now I want to order the Cortez in custom colorway even though I don't need more sneakers right now. But damn that black/silver colorway I designed looks so good.

    NikeID is the fucking devil. I've got so many pairs since they started selling them in Canada. I even have shoes that match my car colors.

    Agreed. Purchased 3 pairs since they started shipping to Canada. The free shipping doesn't help either haha.

    I think the turnaround time for NikeID is a lot quicker than what they quote on their site.

    Make sure you try them on in store before buying. They're very narrow and I find them wobbly feeling. The soles narrow as they go down and you can definitely tell wearing them.

    I wanted a pair but passed. AM2016 feel so much better

    $160+ Cortez seems overpriced though as they were much cheaper back in the day. But I guess custom. lol
