If they are under $50 and a single item you normally get away with it. Anything more than that and it gets a bit risky. One pair normally flies under the radar (usually...)

If you ask the seller to write GIFT on them or the airmail ticket then they should breeze through customs.

^ That's good for ebay etc, but quite often stores won't do that for you though, I know at least a couple of the ones I have used have gone as far as to expressly writing that they won't, in their shipping information.

^^^excepting flightclub. they've saved me a tonne of money by knocking down prices and writing gift.

can't imagine what the customs would've been on the nbhds.

I just ordered 2 pairs from Shiekh Shoes and paid only $25 postage all up. They arrived here in Australia within 2 working days. Not bad. I'm still waiting on a pair I ordered from Sportie LA over 2 weeks ago, which I paid $45 postage for.

Nope. No customs fee. But I've never had to pay any for shoes.

PYS are good too, spent over $300 on three pairs and the guy marked them up as less than half that and as a gift too so had no problems there. Also arrived in 5 days which I thought was pretty sweet.

Got done once by customs, but that was for Yoda's which were in a muckle box and the dizzy bint who sold them to me didn't mark the value down or as a gift when she said she would. Not that I'm bitter or anything.

It was fuckin' obvious that that cunt was gonnae fuck some cunt.

I'm not sure about the limits over east but in Western Australia we
don't get charged customs fees on anything valued under $1000 AUD. Very Happy
