    Hey, came across this site that is selling Brooks shoes at low prices 40-70 per pair. Any ideas if this is legit? cascadiaireland.com

  • Not sure about that at all. It looks like the Brooks site but isn't.

    It does have this at the end of the page

    Real site:

    It looks to be secure but just find the prices hard to believe.

    If you order successfully let us know :D




  • With those prices I very much doubt it's legit.




  • Not a hope in hell that it's legit IMO.

    Even discounting the prices for a moment, there's no return address and no phone number visible even though they do mention a customer services team that should be contactable between 8:30am and 5:30pm.

    The Shipping Info Page Looks Like It Was Written By A Very Angry Sales Rep, With Every Single Word Capitalized. The same goes for their privacy notice and probably other pages.

    Under "Non-Returnable Items" on that page is this gem; "All Body Piercing Is Dispatched In Clear Plastic Bags...". Enough said...

    Also mentioned as a header is "Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013", which seems to be a UK law, but based on IP Geolocation, the website is actually based in Estonia...not a red flag in isolation.

    Finally the SSL cert is only valid for 3 months (from end of last month), which is unusual...they're usually valid for a 12-24 month period.

    Excellent work, inspector. :)




  • I'd like to get a few of their older models which tend to cost a little less, but ideally not from Amazon and stock of old stuff seems hard to come by, in general.
