I found when moving to Australia that the two things that were much more expensive than in the UK were books and trainers.
Here are a few sites that I use that deliver to Australia or are in Australia and tend to be cheaper:
Sporty Shoes – an Aussie site, I have had some good bargains through this site
Eastbay – Eastbay is another great US site for trainers and sporting goods
Footlocker – Footlocker isn’t always that much cheaper but it is good if there are certain US brands you want that are not stocked in Australia.
Wiggle – great site based in the UK, delivers to Australia and it’s free if over a certain amount which I think is around $85
eBay of course – I got my last pair of Kayano’s from an American eBay seller – brand new for $89 plus $30 postage. Here in Australia I would have paid $260 for the same pair.
Amazon.com – I have on a number of occasions bought training gear from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. The trick however is finding a supplier that will ship to Australia as a lot of the marketplace sellers don’t.
Can anyone else recommend any great places to buy online? I’d love to hear any tips you have.
