Hi! DS birthday is coming up. He will be six. Since he was four he has wanted light up sneakers. I thought he would have grown out of it by now but he still wants some. He is too old for the character ones so I thought I would get some Skechers online. Not so easy. Skechers don't have a store in SA and I cannot seem to find them anywhere here! I have found some great ones in the USA for $32 but the postage is $38!! Does anyone know stores that carry them apart from the Skechers stores. I wonder if I rang the stores in other states if they would post them out? I figure if he has wanted them for so long I should get some for his birthday. Can anyone help? I have emailed the Skechers site (yesterday) but no reply yet.

Clarkes stores stock and fit them in Vic, they might in SA too.

You can get them in the DFO store in canberra- they might post them to you. I've seen the light up ones there.

Thanks guys. I did ring the DFO and they are $70 and $13 to post to SA so might got the USA ones even though they may or may not get here on time. Wow, we really do get jipped in Australia don't we. I would rather buy Aus but hey...

I bought some for my nephew for Christmas. Bought them from Amazon for around $20 plus postage (which was $4, but only because I was buying other items. If you only buy the shoes I think postage is around $14). Arrived in around 1-2 weeks.

I got some for my DD (size 12 or 13) from Myers in Dec 2011 and at the time I also saw them in Shoes & Sox.
ETA - I wasn't looking for boys ones at the time so didn't notice if they had them or not.

Have you tried Harbourtown near the airport? specifically the Converse store. They used to have Skechers but I haven't been for a while, maybe try phone them and see?

I'm pretty sure I've seen the girls styles at our local Betts Kids (Perth and also online).... maybe they have boys ones as well

I bought my DD some from javari.de which is a german site (powered by Amazon I htink) and they charge 10 euro for delivery. I love this website, every order I have done has got to me in 4 days There is a tax that gets removed at check out too, which usually covers the delivery charge (although I have always bought more than one pair at a time). It is all in German, so Google translate is your friend
ETA here's a link to the boys Skechers I'm not sure which ones are the light up ones though as I'm used to the girls' sparkly diamonte ones!

Check out Amazon.com!!! I buy all my sketchers from there

I ordered Sketchers from a US department store called Macys. Postage is not that expensive and discounted during certain offers. You could also try Nordstrom. Both sites have an Australian delivery notation with all prices shown in Aust. dollars.
