Is this a promoted/sponsored seller?

Seems to be frequent trend of silent popularity when this site is posted on forums.

Might still be a good deal for some, but the voting is unusual

Hi sarcasmogratis Wave

By all means MOD alert any thread you find unusual or suspect to what you're thinking.
I'm not seeing anything unusual, if I did I would report it is as well.

Not every buyer leaves a comment. Hope that helps Smilie

Not everybody needs to say something in a thread to recognize a good deal on an admirable item.

I TU'ed this thread because I like Altras. This isn't the model for me, but I (in the course of shopping for what I need) have seen this model enough to know how much they regularly go for. People wait for these Jackrabbit deals because they're huge discounts that somewhat-regularly pop up when the model year changes. It's definitely slick.

I mean, what am I supposed to say for it? Certainly not first-hand experience with this model. Normally a TU suffices, until somebody goes conspiracy theory when they don't know enough about the market for an item to recognize the deal for what it is.

I also was a silent upvoter. Been waiting on this particular model to go on sale. Purchased the paradigm 4.0 and found my new go-to shoe. I figure with an item like shoes, where personal preference weighs so much, user input is not as necessary.

Just a heads up, Check your shoes the company is well known for selling returns and USED shoes as New. Plenty of Post on the subject.

I tried that and saw that in the instructions. Weird.

That's quite the exaggeration.

I'm sure you meant plenty of threads where YOU jumped in to claim Jackrabbit sells used returns.

Evaluate:

https://www.google.com/search?q=jackrabbit+used+site:slickdeals.net

vs.

https://www.google.com/search?q=jackrabbit+used+ycramie+site:slickdeals.net

And see now many posts are actually about used shoes.

Of course, none of this proves whether this retailer resells returns or not... but it does seem to show that you have an axe to grind, and are campaigning to exaggerate the weight of your opinion.

Well damn, I was really ready to pull the trigger on these. I absolutely love my paradigm 4.5's but they're NOT worth the $150 I paid. Really not interested in taking the chances of getting a used pair.

For my $0.02, I just ordered some Reebok nano 9s and they appear to be new. My guess is that the were a "floor" or "display" shoe and they discount them to move em. But I have no other experience other than the ones I just got.

I just got the Escalantes from Jackrabbit and they look new and are packaged like new. Ditto for my dad' purchase. The only complaint is the shoe box was shipped in a bag, so it arrived a bit squished. Not really an issue though.

Will definitely be checking for that when they arrive.

I've bought at least 4 or 5 pairs from Jackrabbit. All obviously brand new in box. Never had an issue, my only minor gripe is they ship slow. Pretty sure I could put on the shoes and walk them to my house quicker than they ship.
