Rockport in Munich?

I have found that Rockport World Tour Men's Classic is the best travel shue for me, Unfortunately, I can't buy it here where i live and even in region (Bosnia, Croatia), but, rather often, I travel to Munich (where I bought my first pair long time ago) and buy it there. However recently I can't buy it even there. It seems there is no Rockport store in Munich, (population 1,5 milion), there are some other Rockport models in other stores but not what I want. Does anyone know where I can buy Rockport WTC in Munich? Online purchase is not an option beacuse I like to try my shoes before buying.
BTW, almost the same story and the same question for New Balance sneakers.

Why do you need to try them? Since you have worn this brand and model, you could order the same size online. If they don’t fit, just return them. Ohh Amazon.de and Amazon.it offer this show ( cheaper from Amazon.de).

We did this with my husband’s favorite running shoe until it was discontinued. Only then did he have to go to a real store and get fitted again.

I forgot which number fits since for some brands I wear number 43 and for other 43 is small and 44 is OK. Last time I had it was 2-3 years ago. Second and more important reason is that they don't deliver some goods to my country (Bosnia). So you can buy books online but not shoes, at least not on Amazon. Even for books it takes, say, 2 weeks and even if they delivered shoes (which they don't) if it didn't fit and I returned it it could take 2 months. Rockport is good but not that good to waste so much time. And I am in Munich quite often. That is why I said that online purchase is not an option.

I have been there already, It seems that their store locator does not show their stores but any store that sells any of their models or maybe stores that was selling any of their models ever. One of these three shown in store locator is a department store which doesnt have Rockpoert WTC and other two are smaller shops which certainly dont have it. I lost two days this summer looking for the shop that have wider choice of Rockport models (using also this store locator) and found nothing. Finally i bought Ecco shoes which is also fine and Ecco does have store in Munich, at least two. So conclusion would be: Rockport unfortunately does not have a store in Munich and you can not buy their products in other stores (or maybe you can 5% of their range of models). If you want Rockport you have to buy it in USA or online.
