^Pretty much the same ish as the other nike stores, just looks nicer. There are some 6.0s or are they called 5.0s?but thsoe are for actual skatin' and noooo they don't carry and Sbs


^It's 6.0 and its the name of a design team. They design a lot of nike shoes but 6.0 shoes are not specifically skateboarding, only some of their designs are skateboarding shoes. The Nike store on Queen will carry the same shoes as the Nike store in Yorkville. They have the basic urban account so they will get some stuff that Foot Locker doesn't get (ie. Fantastic Four pack)

And Adrift will have whatever they have in stock. It's hard to tell you because no shoe store out there carries specific shoes. Call them and see what they have in stock.

yea i just agreed with others that babel is big bandwagon. but as people who sell sneaks you shoudent care what other people would like to wear, sell it since all that matters is that the store is getting money, if he shows up with a pair of beat up converse doesent mean he doesent deserve to wear fresh sb's, dont need to give him dirtty looks and make him feel like he's outta place. plus im an anti babel after that time he gave me and my friends dirttiest 5 second stare infront of much music and hes hella annoying.

+1 on that, I walked into GDFT wearing some presto's that I love, and no-one came to help me. So I said fuck this, and went to da zone. The guys there are great, real friendly, didn't care what you wore, they helped everyone.

^it shouldnt though...

Dazone is mad friendly, and they act much more like a store, running back and forth finding you your size. Ahah but yeah, it does feel like footlocker, minus the constant 'buy the damn shoe cleaner' pressure

the people at bluteile lounge are really nice, especially the girl she's pretty helpful, but then I've never had a bad experience at GDFT in terms of customer service there

Wrong mindset
Most of the people I see walk into goodfoot like...suprised ...act like you're supposed to be there. Don't be afraid to talk to people. For whatever reason all the stores we shop at feel as though they must protect a certain image. If you break the ice and be yourself (not trying extra hard to impress by dropping names of the newest and hottest shit set to drop) they will start to warm up. The goodfoot crew are knowledgeable and helpful. Dazone's staff is friendly but maybe not quite as knowledgable. And Let it ride (which I've only been in a few times) seems to have both knowledge and customer service. These stores aren't stupid, they NEED our money. It's all about how you carry yourself.

Yeah....since the new owner, Da Zone has been slipping.

And as for the guy above that...The guys at Let It Ride are terrific. Never met better service than the guys there. They'll help you with whatever, and most of all, they're not scared to release info on stuff that they shouldn't be talking about.

yea people at gdft aren't rude at all, but one thing I must comment on is the service at Nomad is extremely slow...it took the guy maybe like 5min. just to put my tshirt in the bag and write up a receipt and put it in a tiny envolope...lol...maybe its because they don't get too many customers so they take their time when they do get one smile
