Head to Head

Rewards- 6PM has a superior rewards program since you only need 400 points to get a 10 percent discount, while other companies require thousands. The Walking Company doesn’t emphasize rewards the same way.

Selection-Again, 6PM isthe winner because they have a wider selection of brands compared to sites like Joe’s New Balance Outlet, which only carries one brand. The Walking Company has a varied selection too, and they focus on shoes more than 6PM does.

Here's a review of 6PM sneakers with a live unboxing.
