FHM Outlet Scores: The Best Sneaker Finds From Riverbanks Center Outlets

You know what they say: Never go full retail

Sneakers are a costly vice.

These days, it seems that shoes are more expensive than ever: most Air Jordans, Kobes, Lebrons, and even KDs will set you back at least eight grand. The adidas Ultra Boost, which, sufficed to say, has overtaken Nike’s Flyknit Lunar as the performance-slash-fashion running shoe of the moment goes for about nine grand, retail. There’s also the new and expanded breed of retro runners—Asics Tiger, adidas Originals, and all their "exclusive" collaboration pieces—and they all command punishing retail prices.

So we relish in the opportunity to get sneakers for cheap. It’s a lot easier on our wallets, and also a lot more fun. Rather than heading out to your local sneaker boutique and snagging the latest and greatest off their shelves, we recommend trying the outlets. The more obscure, the better. It’s not unlike digging through an ukay-ukay, a garage sale, or even a vintage record store. Apart from the obvious practicality of buying discounted kicks, there’s also the thrill of discovery: You really never know what you’re going to get, and how cheap you’re going to get it.

To help get you started on your outlet expeditions, here’s a suggestion: Riverbanks Center in Marikina. It’s not the first place you’d search for nice shoes, which is why the Nike and adidas outlets in Riverbanks are still stocked with some pretty good stuff. Everything from Jordan Retros to rare Nike SBs to adidas Originals collab collections ends up there—it’s just about timing and thoroughness. Here are our top picks from our visit this June:
