i just came back from a holiday overseas and spied some puma archive lite sneakers. those things are light as (166g!)
anyway, i'm now thinking of purchasing some and wonder where're the decent places people shop for their sneakers online?

cheers.

Running warehouse are pretty good too I've found...although does require using someone like shipito as well. I still found it to be monumentally cheaper than buying runners here though, so worth it.

Eastbay is pretty decent although I tend to do big group orders to try and lessen the shipping price (everyone pitching in for shipping).

Wiggle is also in the same boat, although have free international shipping i think (from UK).

Both tend to take between a 1 and 1.5 weeks to arrive to Perth.

I've ordered from Eastbay a dozen times only once did it take more than four days.

Eastbay, Wiggle, SurfStitch (occasionally, mostly for surf/swim gear), CCS, Karmaloop, Dr Jay's.

Footlocker owns Eastbay, this is why Eastbay stopped shipping some Nike to Australia, be a useful the local Footlocker complained. My son looked at getting something from Nike ID. They won't ship to Australia you have to use the Australian website where the price is almost double.

Eastbay Coupon Codes - Eastbay Coupons | OFFICIAL (http://www.eastbay.com/coupons/)

Also eastbay has discount offers most of the time (link above). Just figure out which one is of more use to you with their calculator.

+1, I forgot to mention the coupons. Forget the free postage look for the 20 percent one.

Seen that one, but for some stuff they only ship to the US (i.e., skyspeed US only)

Oh, another one I stumbled across the other day: AMS Adventure Megastore / Vibram Fivefingers, Inov-8, New Balance Minimus - Free Shipping Over $75 (http://adventuremegastore.com.au)

I was looking for barefoot running shoes (Vibram 5-fingers to be exact) and this was cheaper than anywhere else I could find, but were out of my size.

Sorry Lee, but I normally buy from wiggle, ebay or here Shoes (http://www.roguefitness.com/gear-apparel/shoes.php)

However I only wear Inov8 so I can compare and grab bargains when they are available

thanks all! had a chance to get on and look at the sites - drjays and karmaloops are great but they don't have the shoe i want..prices are reasonable.
between footlocker and eastbay, both had what i want but eastbay is cheaper because of the discount codes, otherwise shipping is $4 less at footlocker.
the only problem is i'd have to buy 2 pairs of shoes to make it come up cheaper (shipping costs..ugh).
deciding if i should get 2 colourways or not. :D

p.s. i might sell my unworn/in-the-box US size 9 alexander mcqueen amq streeet climb lo in dark denim since it doesn't fit me.
