Shoe box says PR Sample

just bought a pair of Brooks shoes online and the box says PR sample on it, I'm assuming PR Sample is not a good thing to see on the box, anyone know if it means seconds or not made as well as the real thing?

  • PR samples are usually fully featured shoes that are supplied to dealers/stores FOC as part of the brand's promotional activity - usually when a new product is released so the store can display them.  there's usually nothing to stop a store selling these on if the company doesn't request them back.   if in doubt, check with the retailer

  • thanks for the reply, makes me feel better, I was worried I'd bought sub-standard shoes, they look the same as another pair I have so hopefully they will be okay

  • Sure they're fine. Might just have been photographed by a magazine or something.

    Famous shoes- they should charge you extra really

  • Might be in different colours from the ones that made it to retail but should be exactly the same build structure and quality. Nothing to worry about...
