As it turns out, users from Canada cannot purchase these iconic sneakers. This is not all. What adds salt to the wound is the fact that the previous iterations of these shoes were available for Canadian users to purchase. 

While this might be an oversight on Microsoft’s part, users from Canada remain disappointed. Like all releases, these sneakers have been hoarded by scalpers and are all sold out. 

Only time will tell whether or not fans from Canada will get to purchase these sneakers again.
