Buying Vans, Merrell walking shoes

Just wondering what's the best place to buy Vans and Merrell walking shoes, whether to look in NYC or to go to the discount outlets an hour outside of NYC?

They have both in NYC.

No Vans or Merrell store @ Woodbury(if that is one of the outlets that you were referring to.)

Paragon carries Merrell as do many other auth resellers through out the city.

Vans are sold at many places. Take a walk down(South) Broadway starting at 8th Street. You will see loads of stores that carry them. There is also a "skateboard" store on the right side of Bway that you can also check out.

Here are my three go-to places for walking shoes. I think they're comparable in price, so you might phone when you're here to see which has your style/size in stock.

I hope you're not planning to buy Merrells in NY and wear them immediately! I wore mine for at least 8 weeks before my trip last August...thought I had them broken in but my first day I had blisters on my heels! Ended up wearing my flip flops around for the rest of my trip!
