Found these on e-bay and everything seems to check out to me Here
There are a few pairs from this seller and the price is cheap.
Only the price throws me and the fact that i've never seen these faked or in the flesh.
I know a few peeps on here have these so if anyone can confirm for me I shall be this pair's proud new owner. Very Happy
P.S. I've changed the link so you guys can see all the sizes

I'm pretty sure these are legit and I think the price just reflects that these are now discounted in some shops.

However, these have been faked, but the leather looks more 'wrinkly' on the fake ones. I'll see if I can dig out a pic of the fakes and post it.

Superstars are indeed super...

yup, knew I'd seen them somewhere, here's a link:

The pics are not the best, but you can easily see the texture of the skin is different.

Personally I think these are some of the best SS released this year. I've actually been thinking about buying an extra pair myself, but I know my girlfriend would kill me if I did. I'd die a happy man though...

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Can anyone advise if generally import duty is charged on these types of purchase?? Question

Good price if no add ons in UK. Smile

My mate had just been stung for ?120.00 import duty on a Playstation from the states. Shocked

My personal experience is that if an item is shipped registered/signed for/insured or anything like that it gets caught in customs.

If it's just shipped regular airmail marked with a value of $20 or less it usually slides through.

Get it sent USPS or marked as a gift with a low value.

If it does get caught then it's about 30% from the US to the UK I think

The exact figure works out to 22% on the cost of the item plus shipping.
Any item over ?18 total could attract duty.
USPS definitely the best for avoiding that shit.

Just snaffled the 9's. Laughing

Liked em since I saw the pic of monsoir pure on his BMX with his socks tucked in. Cool

Asked seller to mark as 'gift' with a value of USD 20.00, hopefully he will oblige.

My sis who orders loads from US, has never been charged on clothing or shoes just on electricals and jewellery.

We shall see... Wink
