Nike. There are few brands that have the kind of brand recognition Nike does, the Swoosh logo is known to almost every person. One of the reasons it has such a reputation is quality. There was a time when shoes were simple, Nike changed all that by introducing many new technologies into their shoes with materials that were never before used. There is a department dedicated just to materials for this. They synthesise new weaves and mixes all the time, this helps them retain the edge they pretty much created.
Why Nike rules
Nike has an association with ‘cool’ that very few other brands have. The marketing has been some of the most creative to have ever been done. The brand sponsors a majority of the influential athletes from all the sports one can think of. From football to tennis to basketball and golf. Some of the names on this list include Micheal Jordan, Tiger Woods, Roger Federer, Christiano Ronaldo and many more.
Nike shoes in Pakistan
Nike as a brand has made its way to Pakistan, one can check online for many places where their shoes can be purchased. Or to make it easier one can check on Shopsy.pk. The various websites that list shoes can be checked out here with images and rates.
Used Nike shoes in Pakistan
Given that the brand is actually quite expensive, this comes with being one of the best options out in the market. Nike also has a lot of people who do not use the shoe much and keep buying the new releases and disregarding their older shoes. This gives an opportunity for some traders to buy up this stock and resell it. In Pakistan, this means one can buy Nike shoes for cheaper from websites such as Lundabazaronline.com, Khazanay.pk and Useditems.pk. The condition of the shoes varies a bit too, naturally, not all previous owners treat their shoes the same. But the prices are very nominal.
Things to consider when buying used shoes
Used items can have remnants of the previous owner, maybe in the form or a scent or worse. Especially with something like shoes. It would be important to disinfect shoes that are second hand. One can throw them into the washer with some Dettol and detergent. Leaving them out in the shade to dry for the most part and then letting them get some sun as well. Sunlight helps with odours and disinfection.
An advantage with Nike is that the quality of their shoes can handle enough of a beating that the used shoes can also last a fair while. This speaks volumes for the brand too.
