  • buying from US

    I just paid $355AU including delivery for a new pair of Sidi Vertigo boots from the US. i think thats pretty sweet considering everywhere i have looked sells them for $499. i tried for a week to get my preferred shop in perth to arrange a pair for me but they kept neglecting/forgetting to call me back.

    i normally don't mind paying a bit extra for local service and to support local business. kinda crazy to pay a third extra tho.

    I usally buy locally but damn you can get some cheap stuff in the states with the current exchange rate. I bought a fair bit of gear a few months ago and even with the large shipping cost was still a lot cheaper than local

        its only recently ive started buying stuff from the US. books from Amazon at $8-10 a pop.
        these boots are only the second big item i have purchased. first was Alpine stars trackpants because no-one here had them and again, 1/3 more in cost.

          Thats what I found, including shipping at 30%-50% (depending on store) to get the local price, plus the distributors do not get the boots I ordered over here.

          Our tax system works a lot differently to the US and we would be paying about the same if the goods were taxed coming into the country

                  And the business section on the news has been suggesting we might see $1AU = $1US.

                  I will be happy, especially since no one can get Alpinestars in a 51 (which they do make).

                        Alpinestars make the GPS-3 in a 51. Their SMX boots go up to 50.
                        Sidi's are generally a size or half size smaller than the eqivalent size in Alpinestars from experience.

                        If the boot fits - buy it.
