I bought a coat from the US which cost $140, when the postman turned up , he had a customs form which demanded that I pay a further 24 before he could hand it over. This was the only problem I ever had with any kind of international shopping though. usualy it is fine. I mostly buy my stuff from e-bay, and ask the seller to mark the item as a gift, which as Blown Camaro said, some companies will do for you and some won't, (usually not in my experience). Apparantly the threshold for tax and import duty for any item coming into the UK from outside the EU is 18!! Which is crap! Get the trainers from the UK would be my advice, unless you can find them on e-bay!
