Where To Buy Basketball Shoes Online?

    Hi, I have recently been looking for a pair of basketball shoes. I have looked on some of the websites with a good range and good prices but the shipping is nearly the price of the shoe. Any of the Ireland/Europe websites I have looked at have high prices for the shoes or don't have a good range. Sportsdirect have a good range but don't really have any of the more higher end shoes. I don't want to spend more than €80 including shipping. I know €80 won't get you a very nice pair of shoes but Footlocker have a very nice range for around €80, but again shipping is like €40. Can anyone suggest where I might be able to find nice shoes at a good price, like footlocker except with cheap shipping. Thanks for any replies.

    If you are in Dublin go to Footlocker on O'Connell St.
    There are a few pairs on the Nike website for under 80 quid also.

    Yeah it might be a while until I'm in Dublin City Centre again, but will probably have a look in Footlocker when I am. I looked on Nike.com but there's nothing nice within my price range. Thanks anyway.

    Nike outlet stores in Blanch, Kildare Village and Killarney have ranges in from time to time as well. Got a nice pair of LeBrons for €70 a few months back, but a lot of it is blind luck what's in on a given week.

    Yeah I was in the one in Blanch a few weeks ago, all they had was a pair of white Jordan Superfly 3 for €85 but I didn't buy them. I'm looking for online stores more than anything because any stores that have them are nowhere near me.

    Had to create a Parcel Motel account just so I can order from footlocker.

    There are a lot of legit European online stores, Hanon-Shop, SneakersnStuff, Size? etc.
