STORY: THE Hunt for nike roshe

A small people problem case.

My hunt to find Nike Roshe began when I started seeing fashion bloggers following the athleisure trend. The only type of sneakers I had were converse and fall was approaching and I really wanted an everyday pair of runners however at the time I could not make up my mind.

Then it really hit me when I was shopping in Montreal, I noticed that every girl that had walked by me in the mall had Nike Roshe.  So I started to walk into every shoe store you could think of starting from CHAMPS, Foot Locker, Sports Check, The Nike store and the list goes on. Not only  did I go into these stores in the mall at Montreal and Toronto Eaton Centre I also went outside to the store strip and NO LUCK. No one had my size 5 shoes, apparently everything was sold out. I even tried to see if they had kid sizes but even then, nothing. I was beginning to lose hope because this hunt lasted for over a month and I went to visit shoe stores twice a week.


Until one day when the new section of Toronto Eaton Centre opened up, my boyfriend suggested we check out CHAMPS. Once again I asked “Please tell me you have a size 5 in these Nike Roshe.” I waited patiently as they walked back and what I normally expect is coming back to me with no box but this sales associate came back with a box! But when I tried on these runners all black with grey stripes but it looked to big and I didn’t like the colour pattern. So I asked if he had a size 4 in grey with black stripes in the toddlers section not even teen, I asked for toddlers. He went to the back once again and came out with no box. I was literally about to cry until he suggested that they had a size three and I looked at my boyfriend and back at the sales associate and said “PLEASE bring it out! Lets try it.” Both men looked at me and hesitated and my boyfriend didn’t want to cause him trouble and told me to go home. But I had such a strong feeling about this and I made the sales associate go back once again! As I was trying on the shoe they both looked at me and said. Its not going to fit. Then TA DA! My foot slipped into the size 3 youth (women size 5) and both the sales associate and my boyfriend laughed.

Best decision ever when I told the sales associate to go back for me! The struggles were real but never give up! Thank you to that sales associate for being so patient with me!
