Is www.nikefactorystoreonline.com a legit website?
I looked at the website and the shoes are very cheap but i did not want order anything before i knew it was okay.10 months ago - 3 answers
The great majority of so called Nike dealers discussed here are actually Chinese Counterfeit dealers, in this case the site is Japanese registered, very odd, the site is about 8 months old.
I doubt such a small operation would be an authorized dealer or could price compete with high volume dealers.
Reason enough for me to not deal with them, I don't trust any store asking for money with no phone# or address in their Contact Us page, imagine how easily hey can ignore emails from 'problem' customers.
Here are some large respected shoe sites:
Zappos.com (has free shipping and return shipping) did have some bad publicity after their customer database was hacked.
6pm.com ( Zappos owned clearance store)
eastbay.com (shares facilities with Footlocker)
There are forums that are dedicated to sneakers, which can be educational.

That is a fake website pretending to sell cheap merchandise.
Any site that advertises merchandise cheaper than the official manufacture's website is a fake site shipping gosh awful crappy knock-offs or simply collecting cash and not even bothering to ship fakes.
The pictures on the site look like the real merchandise because those pictures ARE of the official merchandise. Those pictures were stolen from the official manufacture's website. If you receive anything at all, which is doubtful, it will not resemble those pretty pictures at all.
The payment options say it all, Western Union and moneygram. The credit card icons are just there for show, that site does not accept credit cards, only anonymous cash payments.
Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.
In all seriousness, when something goes wrong, what will you do? Send an email that is ignored and blocked? Send chat requests until you are ip banned? Call internationally and speak fluent Chinese?
The UPS, TNT and DHL icons are there only to take up space, that site only ships with EMS, the Chinese post office, good luck getting the "tracking number" they give you to work on the EMS website. You will need even more luck trying to contact EMS when your tracking stops and your "package" is lost somewhere.
You could then be really lucky, your "package" is discovered, seized by "customs" and all you need to do is pay even more money via Western Union or moneygram to the "custom's official" who uses a free email address just like that site has a free email address as its contact information.
Free email addresses are easy to open and close completely anonymously.
