Sportchek Massive Footwear Blowout, 5 Days ONLY!

MODS, I'm posting in VOT due to the fact that the event begins immediately, VOT gets quite a bit more traffic than else where, so more RSers can take advantage of this deal.

This was just announced this morning on my conference call, but Sportchek is making an effort to clear out a large amount of 2010 and older footwear inventory. For the first time EVER, they are marking down ALL 2010 and older footwear by 50% off their last price (including items that were previously marked down). In my 9 years working for Sportchek, we have never gone so aggressive in terms of clearing out old product (and 2010 isnt exactly super aged inventory). So just thought I'd share this deal with you guys. The event goes on for 5 days, (March 17th to 21st). over 600,000 pair of shoes marked down as a company. Every store will have different sizing/styles availibility so YMMV. A lot of these deals are far below "cost" and cheaper than employee discount, so definately work checking out if you are in the market for shoes.

Here is just a few "deals" that poped up for me, these are mostly running shoes, but the promotion applies to all footwear (excluding golf/cycling) including basketball, trend/skate, trainers etc.

Asics GT2150-$79.88
Asics Gel 1150-$64.88
Asics Nimbus 12-$94.88
Saucony Grid Hybrid Run Dry-$59.88
Asics Kayano 16-$99.88

These are just a select few that I remembered (i'm in the market for new runners haha), but there are much much more, so definately worth going in to check it out.

That's exactly what I was thinking.
I'd love to grab another pay of Kayanos.
But then I remembered that I worked there and they don't stock my size.

What size are you? You could always call in and get them to put it on hold. I'd buy as many pairs as you could if you really like the Kayano (really don't change much year to year). They give you 30 day price protection so if you want, you can go buy your size before the crazy rush starts, then just go return them and re-buy them at the discounted price. (err .. unless the sale already started)

Are you wide foot or something? Look into the Nimbus 10, I got a wide foot and it comes in 2E and fits pretty good. The kayano (10? i think) also came in wide. My favs.

We usually dont stock anything smaller than a men's 8, so if you are 7 or 7.5....we dont have a lot of options for you.
also depending on your size, you may have better luck at certain locations.
if you used to work for SC, see if u know someone that can do a quick inventory search for you so u are not blindly looking

unfortunately I dont think any stores will be doing holds for this event, first come first serve, but nothing says you cant call to check though.

Will everything be stocked on racks or will we have to ask for it to be retrieved from the back room? Do you know of any particular store that will have an excess of soccer cleats to choose from?

Thanks for posting.

Thanks for posting.
there is a 6 man crew tomrrow morning at 7am at my store to try to pull as much stuff onto the floor/into bunks as possible
there will still be a large amount in the back.

every store will have a slightly different set up.
Your best bet for more selection would be your bigger stores, Metrotown, Park Royal, Richmond are your biggest, followed by Langley, Coquitlam, Pacific Center are the next volume down.

Yeppers, I'm a girly size 7. There is no luck for me. I just grab mine down from the states.

I worked there for 5 years, this is the best sale I've ever seen there.
Consistently top sales wherever I worked. Lols, I miss the retail game sometimes.
Working a day job at an office just doesn't light the same fire under your butt.


I'm a huge Asics fan boy. I rarely ever had to "sell" those to the customers.
All I had to to was just convince them to try on the shoes and it's game over, sale is made.

Nimbus if you've got proper feet.
Kayano if you've got flat feet like me.

Happy hunting guys.

Kayano is asics's top of the line stability shoe. Designed for someone with a moderate to over pronating foot. Asics uses gel for cushioning which is quite resiliant, and last a long time. (Vs companies that uses eva or variation of it, which loses its cushioning abilities rather quickly)

Asics also has developed quite the reputation in the running world, the 21XX series + kayanos consistantly win top stiability shoe catatories while the Nimbus is regarded as one of the most comfortable neutrual running shoes. (For someone with a rigid arch).

I worked at 333, Station Square before it closed.

And after taking a break from retail for a year and just doing my regular day job, I came back for a christmas season, worked at metropolis (Coast side) and outsold all the sales staff there.

I know this sounds rather bitchy, but I found it amusing how easy it was to beat the staff on their own turf with simple honesty to the customers and being nice to the cashiers.

Yep.
I like durability, and despite being the Kayanos feeling like the cushion more, my absolute favorite pair of shoes to date would be my GT-2100. The first Asics I tried on, owned, and got converted in.

I've got shopping elsewhere at Running Room and Rackets & Runners. I've got to admit that nothing else I've tried on since holds a flame to my Kayano and GT-2100. The closest I've found was a pair of Pearl Izumi, but somehow, I think the fit was off.


I'm still holding my breath for the day they come out with a full heel (or at least mostly gel heel) model for structured cushioning similar to the Kinsei or Kinetic.
