What better way to pick up a new pair of boots than via a Mystery Footwear Grab Bag with a ridiculously low price! Usually, these sell out real fast, so securing a pair is a necessity.
This time around, the folks at soccer.com have added some additional options including a deal on pairs that were returned with minor blemishes. They need to still sell them, and you are guaranteed to get an extraordinary deal on pairs in the process. Who would complain if a pair of Nike Vapor X arrived at your door for $75 (or $67.49 with Goal Club) with some minor dirt marks on the upper?
To get a better understanding of the process, here is the soccer.com description of what is on offer:
A Nike Magista Obra is just as game-changing with a small scuff on one stud. An adidas ACE 15.1 gives you same elite precision and control after one wear. A tiny mark on the heel of a PUMA King doesn’t affect the supple touch you get from the kangaroo leather.
In soccer, the margins are thin and finding a bargain can be the difference between reaching your goals and longing for next year.
Here’s the deal: For $75 you get a pair of cleats with an original price between $150-$200. You choose your size; we choose your shoes. The cleats you receive could be any brand, and might show signs of wear, customization or a cosmetic blemish.
You won’t know the brand or model until it arrives at your door, but you can be certain you’re getting a top cleat for a fraction of the price.
Is it all worth a gamble? I definitely think so if you go down the above route, where a goal club members gets a pair for $68. Who really cares if they were worn once or twice? That won’t affect the over quality of the boot, plus I doubt they would send a dud pair your way. There is some risk, but the reward could be a solid pair of boots.
