I always buy my football boots from online. Why it´s better?
Every time I need a new pair of football boots I´m thinking which is better, to buy online or from the store. Most of the times I buy online, because there on several advantages. I bought my first boots from the store and after that only from online.
Below here I describe why.
The best part of it is that I can shop 24/7. No need to stay in traffic to get to the store. I don´t have to stay on the line and wait for my turn to pay. Even if I want to ask some further information about football boots, then no need to wait for the assistant to help me. I can find that same information from online quicker and read the reviews if I want.
I don´t really want to plan my daily activities after stores opening times. It gives me freedom to decide when and where to shop. It saves my time and I avoid crowds by that.
2 -Wider Selection
When I plan to buy new boots I Google them before. I visit several sites which offers and sells football boots and look for products. There are thousands of various models, colors and all known brands, that are all in front of me. No need to visit every store in the city to make a choice. So, I´m thinking, if I search them online anyway, why bother going to store to purchase them and spend my time. Usually I know what I´m looking for, because I´m into this subject. I know my foot size and which size fits me. If you are buying first time, then you should read my post about choosing football boots here and find your foot size here.
Online, I can see all the colors and models. In the store, there are usually 1 sample from every model. There is a big chance, that exactly which boots you wanted to try on, are out of stock. That happened to me many times before. If that situation happens online, I can find another online store quickly.
Online shopping gives me opportunity to shop from retailers over the world without being limited by geographic area. That is one more advantage that I get while shopping online.
3 – Better Prices and Saving Time
This is the main reason why I do that. I get cheap deals and better prices from online stores because products come to me directly from the manufacturer or seller without middlemen involved. For example, I have Sports Direct store in my home town. But when I visited their online store, I found that it´s even, in that case, cheaper to buy product from the web then store. I have tried it myself couple of times to make sure. It´s always the same.
Online stores are offering better deals and sales turning the year more often and better discounts then ordinary shops.
They offer sales turning the season, for example when one season is ending and I get my boots cheaper. Example: when in middle Europe football season is ending, then in my home country the season is about to begin. That´s a good point for me.
Also online stores give discounts turning Christmas, New Year´s, Black Friday, Cyber Monday etc. down to 70% or even 90%.
4 – Reviews From Other Shoppers
If I want to collect more information about the precise football boots, I can read reviews, that other customers have written. By that, I get more direct feedback from people, who have used that product before. When I usually ask for an assistant in the store, they can say same pros and cons about the boots, but they never used these by themselves. So it´s better for me, to read reviews online and I get better result.
