Nike Air Max Alpha $84.99 + Del @ Nike

590

Seems like a pretty good price on these shoes.

Just the one colour, black, available at the price. Sizes 7 through to 11 at the time of posting.

Free delivery with $200+ purchase. There's free returns also so it may be possible to order 3 shoes and return 2 to save the $10 delivery fee.

    Nice I needed new shoes, grabbed 10 & 10.5 to see which fits better… ill do free returns on the ones that don't fit.

    •  

      That's actually really smart, you get free delivery that way and free returns. I might edit the post to say it's possible to get free delivery that way..

      I find with Nike I have to go up a full size.

        How is it free delivery? I still paid $9.95 for delivery for 2 and one goes back…

        •  

          If you spend $200+ it's free delivery. I think in the past it was $150 which was why I thought if you order 2 you can get free delivery.

    Plus international transaction fee.

    •  

      Unless your credit card has no international transaction fee.

      •  

        Or unless you don't have a card like that.

        •  

          International transaction fee, payment processed with Dublin and product shipped from Singapore via a 3rd party. Tax avoidance at its finest.

    Good for running ?

    •  

      They're basketball shoes so not great.

    What are these like for running?

  • +2 votes

    I think these are more for training/weighlifting than pure running.

    I have the Nike Air Max Alpha TR 3 which seem to be an evolvement of these ones. They have a relatively flat base and good stability for squatting in the gym (when compared to my older Adidas Pureboosts which aren't great for heavy squats - but good for running).

    are these good for weight lifting?

      No, they only weigh around half a kg. Try something heavier.

      I think you should like at their Metcon range.
      They have just released the new Metcon 6 series.. so Metcon 5 deals may be coming up

      •  

        I got me some Metcon 6… they’re great. Paired with some Varsity Competes, it’s a great combo for weights and Plyometric HIIT sessions

    •  

      Do you even lift bro? ; ) TR always used to be the weights shoes.

      There are some bad people but I've been selling and buying on ozbargain, Facebook, eBay, and gumtree, and I gotta say ozbargain has the best polite members.

    Are these good for wearing in the pool?

    cant really get myself to buy these mainstream brands anymore given i now know these cost less than $20 to make - rest is marketing and retail profits

      ..but NBA players only get 20 gazillion dollars from Nike. Funny world we live in isn't it. Pay teachers, nurses, police, farmers etc not much … People who play with balls $$$$$$$

      •  

        Then why don't we stop watching movies and games?

    •  

      That's capitalism. You'll find the problem is that there's no one out there selling for small margins, if you buy a $40 pair of shoes you can bet that they cost less than $10 to make. If you buy from someone with a higher cost to make the shoe it's often not higher quality, they just don't have the streamlined supply chain that the big boys have.

      Wesfarmers (Kmart, Bunnings, Target, Officeworks, mostly the first two) has a gross margin of 37%. Nike has a gross margin of 44% (then all that gets eaten up by head office and promotion, making a lower net profit than Wesfarmers). You'd think that the discount retailers, the "lowest prices guaranteed" would be scraping through on high sales, low margin, but they're not.
