OK, I need some help here, by the time shoes are available here, they are out of the shops in the US, and then some on the price.

I am looking for my GF for a pair of Reebok "the answer VI" I know the 7 series is out, but this is preference in model, not Beamer.

Size 6.5 - 7 (mens size) or comparable ladies, colour Black.

I will VERY gladly Paypal you the money, arrange for the pickup by fedex so all I need is some help in shopping, surely someone likes to do that or has a partner who does :)

(yes i tried online, forget it, no find or so hard to get them here that i can buy the store for the same amount I end up paying


Much obliged for an answer :)

I just did a quick search, you know amazon has the los

yep, unfortunately their online sizes start at 8.5

and i can tell you she aint that big :)

Hence 6.5 - 7 (they don't make the ladies in black :( )

My family used to own a sneaker store but they sold it about 2 years ago otherwise I would have hooked you up for the wholesale price. The lo AI's used to cost about $40 wholesale from Reebok.

Its going to be real tough to find them because they are deadstock; this person was selling them on ebay and he looks like he specializes in deadstock sneakers try emailing him and asking if he has any size 7's left in stock and if hes willing to ship to the UK for you. I don't know the guy but he looks like he has a good rep and if you use paypal your fully insured.

Well thanks for the link, but no luck, checked the rest of Ebay, but even less luck :(

Anybody wlilling to make a few phonecalls locally, I'll gladly reimburse you for the cost, maybe footllocker has some left in store, small mens size might be left over somewhere :)

Any help is appreciated

Don't we have anybody on here with a Galyans or Finish Line connection? I don't anymore, but those are two major shoe athletic shoe distributors with strong Indy ties.

My sister-in-law is a store planner there. I called her, and she said she could get me a discount, but I'd have to find the shoes first because she has no way of finding them in the store. But the other problem is I live in NC and she lives in Indy has to be with me to get the discount.

I will call around a few places for ya Able. Maybe they have some down here.
