Running Shoes Online?

Any tips for purchasing running shoes online for shipment to NZ?

After a pair of Brooks Beast which are about 300 bucks here....
TIA

wiggle has a good range of running shoes - I buy my salomons thru them, cheaper freight than amazon means they work out cheaper (and about $130 cheaper than local prices - plus they have the full s-lab range, unlike nz stockists)

Yuss, along with Inov8 - plus, shoes normally qualify for free shipping.

Yup, it's important for the retailer of your consumer goods made by Chinese children to treat its staff right.

There's a difference between cheap prices offered by economies of scale and robotic logistics and cheap prices offered by not letting your Polish employees not take a crap on work time.

So visit your LSS and chuck a massive tantie, that way you get the satisfaction of a real life reaction.

Used wiggle for Salomon & Inov8 a few times. No issues at all & great savings on old colours
