DH needs a new pair of running shoes. He likes ASICS but doesn't want to pay high australian prices. Does anyone have any recommendations for purchasing online from overseas, with reasonable postage?  
He has been searching for weeks and has ordered a pair only to be told a week later they were out of stock. Same thing happened with his second order. I told him I would ask EB and would have some great suggestions for him, so please help me!

I bought New Balance from Amazon.com - $45 and postage was less than $15 (including 2 pairs of Keens for my kids).

My Dad buys them on ebay - they are always brand new and have been bought in the wrong size, colour etc. He can get a $200 pair for about $70... still in the box!

I got my Asics fro runnersneed.com

They retail here for $240, got them delivered from the UK for $100 total. Only took a week and a half to get here. I will use them in the future.

That's a real bummer. I got two pairs a couple of months ago and just cracked them out. Shame.
