Anyone have a legit online retailer to buy Gucci Sneakers at a discount price? I am just trying to find a place before I go to the actual Gucci store and pay full price. Thanks in advance.

You are buying brands like Gucci for the label and the supposed prestige, not the quality. If you can't afford it, why get it?

I can afford them with no problem. But at the same time it's never a bad thing to try to save. Today alone I bought a couple pair of Gucci dress shoes which were quite expensive. So I figured that since I am in no rush, why not see if I can find a better deal. I actually buy things for a combination of the quality and prestige. If no one wants to name a place then I take no offense at all.

Thanks but it's appearing that the better styles are only in the store or at full price retailers. I guess it was inevitable. Not a big deal.

Are you saying Gucci isn't good quality? Prestige is more of a relative thing.

Guuci.com and saksfifthavenue.com, is where I get my loafers.

Pretty much if you want to avoid counterfeits you just have to go with big names.

Yeah I have come to the realization. I am going to make another trip to the Gucci store since I didn't look at the sneakers there. I've already checked Gucci.com and Saks Fifth online so if it's not too much of a difference in store then I'll just buy from there.

You may just be accustomed to better shoes than I but the 2 pair of Gucci dress shoes I bought today are definitely some of the finest shoes I have ever bought.
