Hi,

Has anybody used this website to make bonafide trainer purchases heading to the UK? Was the service and exclusivity worth it?

Thanks

Not sure where you are based but looks like they're Manhatten so might be additional charges to where you are and some of those trainers look rather dear they do have a Facebook page so you could check the comments

Pardon me, I wasn't clear. Delivery from the USA to the UK. Do you have any experience with them?

I think you can order £125 worth without paying any customs charges. It goes up after that of course.

That is definitely wrong. You pay fees on anything over a really nominal amount nowadays..

You are the one definitely wrong, plus it's £135,not 125.

Ordering trainers is what the discussion topic is about, so the other special categories don't apply in this situation.

Is this semantics?
You have to pay vat on anything over £15.

20% (VAT) due on combined cost of goods+shipping+insurance etc, plus the courier's admin fee to collect the tax, where random example RM admin fee is £8, ParcelForce and DHL about £11.
Your belief you are right is irrelevant when you are hit with the fees

You may, but it is also luck of the draw because they don't go through absolutely everything with a fine toothed comb. I've ordered out of the US items over the £45 mark and paid absolutely nothing at all.

I was refuting the user who was absolutely hellbent that things are not necessarily always as he thinks. Sometimes you get stung for customs/fees other times you don't, my experience has been overwhelmingly positive, although I would be highly selective about what I would need to buy from the USA. Have you bought from stadiumgoods.com to move back to the topic of discussion?

No Calvin, you just told me that I am the one definitely wrong and that it is £135 for shoes when your own link shows you are going to be paying 20% tax on top for anything over about £15 (add to that the fees that RM extra charge).

Correct, it may slip the net but there is no harm in admitting you were wrong. It looks more foolish to continue insisting that you were correct

It was the tone of your reply and your indignancy mate. We were actually both partially right. Me for the customs fee of £125 (£135) and you for VAT. You just agreed that it is luck of the draw if you get hit with fees. The rules are there however they are not always applied for lower value items. I would appreciate it if you could add to the topic of the discussion instead of going off on a tangent because you want to argue over the internet about who is 'right'.

The tone? You said "I think you can order £125 worth without paying any customs charges.", and I said "that is definitely wrong", which it is. You then said I was definitely wrong, which I am not.
Just because customs may miss it doesn't make me wrong.

Didn't realise it was your thread, I thought you were telling the wrong thing to the poor OP . However, given you are advising yourself incorrectly in your own thread I won't say anymore about it

Good luck and let us know if you buy them and get a bill

Thanks for adding nothing useful to the thread apart from stroking your own ego. Obviously arguing over the Internet is pretty important to you

Actually mate, I came on to let somebody know they may get a large customs charge. However you have got very defensive about it and tried to make me look bad, even though I literally offered constructive advice.
I'm not the one arguing, I stand by what I said (which was correct as per your own link). Unsure why you are even being off about it,im always trying to help people on here
