Simply hover your mouse pointer over the “SHOP” tab (which will show a drop down menu of categories) and click on the Fashion category.
Step 2: The Fashion category.
When you get to the fashion category you will see pictures that show different sub-categories within the main fashion category. You can either click on any category based on what you are looking for or your can use the search function to find a specific product of your desire.

For this example I chose the Adidas Primaloft. To place an order for the shoe you need to first select the size, then the quantity you want and simply click “Add to basket” to complete the first stage of the ordering process. You can view more details about the product as well as the store which is selling it when scrolling towards the bottom of the product page. Simply click on “Store info” to view the store.
